When We Are Closed
When to use it
You should use the Out of hours service if you urgently need medical help or advice but it’s not a life-threatening situation when the surgery is closed.
Call Out of Hours on 0161 763 8940 if:
- you need medical help fast but it’s not a 999 emergency
- you think you need to go to A&E or need another NHS urgent care service
- you don’t know who to call or you don’t have a GP to call
- you need health information or reassurance about what to do next
For less urgent health needs, contact your GP or local pharmacist in the usual way.
If a health professional has given you a specific phone number to call when you are concerned about your condition, continue to use that number.

For immediate, life-threatening emergencies, continue to call 999.
