Appointments

Patients are able to make appointments with the doctor, nurse and health care assistant. For all appointments please ring on 0161 643 9131 and speak to receptionist.

You can also book appointment using our online appointment booking system Kindly ring admin team for log in details and more information.

You can pre-book routine appointments or call on the same day at 8am for a same day appointment request (this will be subject to a non-clinical triage).

Appointments are available Monday to Friday from 9am to 11.30am and 15.00pm to 17.30pm.

If deemed clinically required, children aged 12 and under will be seen the same day at Rochdale Road Medical Centre.

If you require an appointment outside of usual work hours please see the 7 Day Access section for more information.

Cancellations

If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else.

Appointment Reminders

We now have a text message reminder service, this confirms the appointment one week prior and remind you the day before!

It works as a two way response, this allows you to cancel appointments without calling and respond to any health campaigns.

To make use of this service, please ensure you update the surgery with your mobile number.

7 Day Access

The service gives patients more flexibility in where, when and how you use local health services. It helps those who struggle to get to the doctors during the week, because of work and family commitments.

While you may not get to see their own doctor during these hours, the GP or nurse they do see will have access to your medical record, subject to your consent.

Appointments are available at the following times:

– 6.30pm – 9pm weekdays
– 8am – 6pm Saturdays and bank holidays
– 10am – 1pm Sundays

For appointments please phone 0161 763 8292. Appointments are available at hubs across the borough currently at:

  • Middleton Health Centre
  • Phoenix Centre, Heywood
  • Rochdale Infirmary
  • Pennine Surgery

Home Visits

Whilst we encourage our patients to come to the surgery, where we have the proper equipment and facilities available, we do appreciate this is not always possible. In this respect, if you do need a home visit, you can help us by calling reception before 10:00.

You may only request a home visit if you are housebound or are too ill to visit the practice. Your GP will only visit you at home if they think that your medical condition requires it and will also decide how urgently a visit is needed. Please bear this in mind and be prepared to provide suitable details to enable the doctor to schedule house calls

You can also be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred by your GP. You should also be visited at home by a health visitor if you have recently had a baby or if you are newly registered with a GP and have a child under five years.
