Consultations are available at least two weeks in advance. You will normally be able to see a doctor, nurse or health care assistant within 48 hours.

We aim to offer more than 1000 Clinician appointments weekly as well as Nurse and Healthcare Assistant appointments, but as you to understand this may not always be possible due to holidays/sickness. We will always see medically urgent patients the same day.
In a number of cases it might be worth considering an appointment with a practice nurse or nurse practitioner rather than a doctor. They are qualified to deal with many conditions and you may be seen more quickly.
Telephone consultation appointments are available online by registering at https://patient.emisaccess.co.uk/account/login?ReturnUrl=%2F or ask at reception for details. The telephone appointments are released each day at Midnight for the next day. These are for telephone consultations only and not to come into the surgery. Once your problem is discussed with the clinician you will be made aware of the time needed to come down to surgery if applicable.
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.
Extended Hours access
If you require an appointment after 6pm and before 8pm Monday to Friday we can offer you pre bookable appointments at either Thornley Medical Centre, Glossop, and Ashton Primary Care Centre.
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 10:30am. All requestes for a home visit are triaged by a GP. The decision as to whether a home visit is warrented rests solely with the doctor and is based on clinical assessment
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.
The doctors usually make home visits between morning and afternoon surgeries. We cannot guarantee which doctor will visit you.
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.
Please remember that demand for GP appointments are very high. A GP can see up to 4 patients in the surgery in the time it takes to make one home visit, and may be unable to do a full examination in your home without the specialist equipment that is available at the surgery.
You do not require a doctor's sickness certificate for any illness lasting seven days or less. Your employer may however require you to complete a self-certification form (SC2) which is available from your employer or on the HMRC website.
If you are sick for more than seven days, your employer can ask you to give them some form of medical evidence to support payment of SSP (statutory sick pay).
It is up to your employer to decide whether you are incapable of work. A medical certificate, now called a 'Statement of Fitness for Work’ (see below) from your doctor is strong evidence that you are sick and would normally be accepted, unless there is evidence to prove otherwise.
You could also provide evidence from someone who is not a medical practitioner, e.g. a dentist. Your employer will decide whether or not this evidence is acceptable. If your employer has any doubts, they may still ask for a medical certificate from your GP.
The 'fit note' was introduced on 6 April 2010. With your employer's support, the note will help you return to work sooner by providing more information about the effects of your illness or injury.

We are an approved training practice, and have experienced doctors as well as medical & nursing students attending the practice, who may be present at your consultation. Should you prefer this not to be the case, simply inform reception.
In order for doctors and staff to update their training, the surgery will be closed from 12 noon on the following dates
A lasting power of attorney (LPA) is a legal document that lets you (the ‘donor’) appoint one or more people (known as ‘attorneys’) to help you make decisions or to make decisions on your behalf.
This gives you more control over what happens to you if, for example, you have an accident or an illness and can’t make decisions at the time they need to be made (you ‘lack mental capacity’).
You must be 18 or over and have mental capacity – the ability to make your own decisions – when you make your LPA.
There are 2 types of LPA:
You can choose to make one type or both.
The leaflet below describes what you can expect to happen when your GP refers you to see a specialist of consultant, at a hospital or community health centre.
