Visiting the practice during the COVID19 Pandemic

Patients may only enter Manchester Road surgery if they have been invited to attend for an appointment.
What to expect when you arrive for your appointment.

The outer porch door is open please enter and use the intercom we have installed so you can speak to the receptionist.
We now ask that all patients (except very small children/babies) wear a face covering when they enter the building unless you are exempt.

Please try not to arrive for your appointment too early and ideally you should attend alone.

Our waiting room can now hold a maximum number of 7 people safely. Alternatively you can choose to wait outside or in your car if you prefer. Just let the receptionist know where you are going to be waiting so the clinician can find you!

If you are dropping off a prescription or sample you can leave them in the boxes that are in the porch. Please ensure you put your name, DOB and time the sample was taken on the sample bottle!

If you have an enquiry or wish to speak to a GP or nurse – please call the practice or use Doctorlink to check your symptoms and submit an enquiry(see homepage). Do not come to the Practice unless invited by one of our healthcare practitioners.

May 2021 update – We are starting to book more Face to face appointments directly via our receptionists – if your problem is related to a rash/ear problem/lump it is likely you will be booked in for a face to face appointment without first having been telephone triaged by a clinician. We still have to be mindful of the social distancing rules so if our waiting room is full you may be asked to wait outside. Please do not attend the practice if you have ant COVID symptoms.

Thank you for your understanding and patience at this time.
