Accessing Primary Healthcare

Seven day GP access

Patients with a GP in Tameside or Glossop can now access GP appointments seven days a week   

Evening and weekend appointments are available as part of the seven day service, which aims to improve access to primary care services. The service is available to anyone registered with a GP in Tameside or Glossop and patients can book an appointment by contacting their own GP practice. Clinicians staffing the evening and weekend service will be able to access patients’ medical records, subject to the patient's consent.

 
Accessing your GP practice

You should contact your GP if you or a family member has a condition that you or your pharmacist cannot treat. Your GP practice has core opening hours of 8am – 6.30pm, Monday to Friday. Your GP practice will be able to offer you a range of appointment options, including evening and weekend appointments based across five hubs located at: 


GP Out Of Hours

If you need to seek urgent care or advice after 6.30pm on a weekday or over the weekend, you should call NHS 111.


Walk-in Centre

If you cannot get an appointment through your GP practice and want to see someone urgently you can visit the walk-in-service at Ashton Primary Care Centre. The centre is open 8am-8pm every day of the year.


Accessing healthcare during bank holidays

Right Treatment Right Place

Sometimes our urgent care services are not always used in the right way.  Each year we see an increase in the number of people visiting Accident and Emergency (A&E) when they could have received the help that they needed from their Pharmacist, GP or our walk-in service at Ashton Primary Care Centre.
