Accessing A+E/ NHS 111
We are continuing to provide services as we have been doing throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. If you need medical advice or treatment, please call us or, for non-urgent advice or treatment, visit our website and send us your query.
Appointments are being delivered face-to-face, by telephone, or using video calls and messaging to your mobile or computer – the practice team will assess what is most appropriate for you and if you have a preference you can discuss this with them. If you need urgent medical help but it’s not life-threatening, then make sure you use NHS 111 instead of going straight to A&E.
You can contact NHS 111 by either calling 111 or visiting the website: https://111.nhs.uk/ If you need to go to A&E, NHS 111 will book an arrival time. This will mean you spend less time in A&E. This also helps with social distancing. NHS 111 is also able to direct to or book appointments at Urgent Treatment Centres, GP surgeries, pharmacies, emergency dental services and walk-in clinics. Remember if you or someone you know has a life-threatening illness or injury then you should still call 999 immediately.

GP's are not required or in a position to provide exemption letters for patients who believe they should be exempt from wearing a face covering. The current guidance suggest there is no requirement for the public to provide medical evidence for exemption from wearing face masks therefore a SELF-DECLARATION should be sufficient.

Manchester Health and Care Commissioning would like to understand why some people have the flu vaccination and why others choose not to. In Manchester, only 70% of people who were eligible on a GP practice register to receive a flu vaccination, aged 65 or over, received it. We have created a survey to understand the reasons for this, and the feedback gathered will help us inform our marketing campaigns around the flu vaccination in the future. The survey takes no more than 5 minutes to complete and the can complete the survey by clicking the following link: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/C7RLPKP
Many thanks for your anticipated assistance with this initiative.
