Out Of Hours

Our normal surgery opening hours are 8am - 6.30 pm on week days but we close at 12 noon on the third Thursday of every month for training.

If you require urgent medical assistance which cannot wait until the surgery re-opens please call 111. Calls to NHS 111 from both landlines & mobiles are free.



If you are confronted by a serious problem such as severe chest pain or profuse bleeding, call an ambulance (tel: 999) straight away.

Ambulance Booking

Please try to arrange for a relative or friend to take you to hospital appointments wherever possible. Remember that ambulances are not taxis! If you need an ambulance because of your medical condition, please telephone 0844 811 1020. This is your local patient Assessment Booking and Choice Service and your transport can be arranged through them.

Urgent Treatment Centre (UTC)

A new Urgent Treatment Centre (UTC) opens on 29 April 2019 at the Tameside Hospital site (next to A&E).

The new centre – our new broader and better offer – replaces the existing Walk in Centre (WIC) at Ashton Primary Care Centre (which closes the day before). 

Initially people with an urgent need will be able seek support at the Urgent Treatment Centre (UTC) by walking in between 9.00am – 9.00pm, 7 days a week. 

Later in the year as well as the ability to walk in, anyone registered with a GP practice in Tameside & Glossop will have access to a range of bookable appointments through their GP or NHS111.  This will complement the range of appointments currently available in the evenings and at weekends through the Primary Care Access Service (PCAS).
