As the picture says, we are now here for you evenings and weekends.
From 1st October Rochdale Health Alliance is working with local Practices in the Pennines, Rochdale, Heywood, and Middleton areas to provide additional routine appointments outside of normal general practice opening hours, and it is now possible for you to access some same-day and pre-bookable routine appointments in the evenings and weekends at selected GP surgeries and these are: • Littleborough Health Centre, Featherstall Rd, Littleborough OL15 8HF • Whitehall Street, 90 Whitehall St, Rochdale OL12 0ND • The Phoenix Centre, Church St, Heywood OL10 1LR • Peterloo Medical Centre, 133 Manchester Old Road, Middleton, M24 4DZ We refer to these appointments as Enhanced Access and are bookable through your own GP surgery.
They are available for general routine services such as cervical screening, childhood vaccination clinics and health checks etc. You will be able to see a member of the general practice team including a GP, nurse or other health care professional but it’s worth bearing in mind that as these appointments are outside of the surgery's normal working hours, therefore, means that you may not see your usual GP.
Please also remember that these appointments are for routine consultations only and anyone who needs an urgent appointment outside of surgery hours, should continue to get in touch using the NHS 111 service
