It is important that the doctors and other clinical staff keep themselves up to date with the changes in medicines and the way ailments are treated. That way they can ensure you get the best possible treatment.
On certain afternoons of each month the surgery closes to allow for staff training. We are sorry for this inconvenience but hope you will understand the importance of this.
We are closed for staff training on the following dates in 2022:
We will re-open the following morning at 8am. If you require urgent medical assistance during these closure times which cannot wait until the surgery re-opens, please call Go to Doc on 0161 336 5958.
If you need to be seen out of normal surgery hours which are:
Monday – Friday 08:00 – 18:30
You should telephone 111 and you will automatically be put through to NHS111 who deal with urgent problems out of surgery hours. This service is commissioned by NHS Oldham Clinical Commissioning Group.
The walk-in service on the ground floor of Oldham Integrated Care Centre on New Ratcliffe Street is open from 08:00 to 20:00 7 days a week.
Outside these hours there is still advice and treatment available from the out of hours GP Service NHS111, which will assess people over the phone and direct to the most appropriate place of treatment. NHS111 can be telephoned on 111.

Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
