Cancel or change an appointment

Please tell us as soon as possible if you no longer need your appointment so we can offer your appointment to someone else and help reduce waiting times.

If you regularly miss booked appointments, you may be asked to find an alternative GP practice and removed from our practice list.


Types of appointments

However you choose to contact us we may offer you a consultation:

  • By phone.
  • Face to face at the surgery.
  • By text or email.

Appointments by phone, text or email can be more flexible and often means the doctor or nurse can help you sooner.

Appointments: Talking Therapies

To arrange an appointment you can request this from your GP or other health organisation who can discuss your needs and make a referral to our service. In the meantime, If you don’t have a referral you can still call us directly as we may be able to sign post you to an alternative service provider who can support you.

At this time you cannot request a self referral, however we are constantly reviewing our services and our looking into ways this could be delivered in the future.

If you have already met with us and need to change your appointment please call 0161 983 0900.
