Enhanced Access Service

From 1 October, there will be some small changes to the appointments that we make available for our patients during the evenings and weekends. These changes are being made to ensure we meet the requirements set by NHS England. We have worked closely with Bolton GP Federation (who provide these appointments on our behalf) to make sure they meet your needs too.

What’s the same:

We will still provide evening and weekend appointments for you during the following times:

  • Monday to Friday, 6:30pm to 9:30pm
  • Saturdays 9am to 5pm

The Enhanced Access Team is made up of lots of different specialists, that have been specially selected to meet patients’ needs, and appointments will be booked for with the most appropriate clinician, which could include a GP, Advanced Nurse Practitioner, Nurse, Health Care Assistant, Mental Health Practitioner or Physiotherapist.

Patients will be offered the choice of both face-to-face and telephone appointments.

What’s different:

Our patients will be able to access face-to-face appointments closer to home at Halliwell Surgery.

Bank holiday appointments will no longer be provided by this service. However, should you need support from a GP on a Bank Holiday, you can still contact the out of hours service on 0161 763 8940 or the 111 service.

Practice receptionists will ensure that patients needing this service can access the available appointments. To book an appointment, patients should contact their GP practice.

If you need help when we are closed

If you require urgent medical assistance outside normal surgery hours please ring 01204 463999 which will give you clear instructions of who to contact.

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.

In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency. 

NHS111

NHS 111 Online

111 online is a fast and convenient alternative to the 111 phone service and provides an option for people who want to access 111 digitally. 

Your needs will be assessed and you will be given advice about whether you need:

  • Treat yourself at home
  • Go to a Primary Care Centre

If you need face to face medical attention you may be asked to attend a Primary Care Centre.
