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 practices are still open for business and are working hard to look after patients by providing non-urgent care despite the challenges posed by the coronavirus pandemic. All practices in Tameside and Glossop have been open throughout the pandemic.
 
To protect patients by reducing the need to come into a practice and sitting in waiting rooms with potentially other infected patients, face-to-face appointments have been limited to those who require an examination in person. This helps to stop the spread of coronavirus but there are still others ways to access your GP easily. The clinical advice and support will not be affected by how you access your GP.
 
The ways to seek healthcare advice from a GP are:
 
  • Visit your GP surgery website to complete a confidential online consultation for non- urgent health needs to receive a response before the end of the next working day.  
  • Call your surgery to discuss a face-to-face or virtual (telephone or video) appointment.
  • Call NHS 111 or go online to seek advice https://111.nhs.uk/ [search NHS 111 online]
 
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.

Urgent Treatment Centre

If you cannot get an appointment through your GP practice and want to see someone urgently you can visit the Urgent Treatment Centre (including walk-in) at the Tameside Hospital site. The centre is open 9am-9pm every day of the year.

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 Urgent Treatment Centre at the Tameside Hospital site.
