Urgent Appointments

Patients ill enough to require being seen by a doctor urgently are always given access to a doctor the same day. Genuine emergencies are provided with immediate medical attention. Misuse of these services disrupts the work of the practice and is actively discouraged.

Late For Your Appointment

Please attend your appointment on time, if you are late you may not be seen. If you are not seen you will not be able to rearrange your appointment until the next working day-except in the event of an medical emergency that requires immediate attention.

Extended Hours

Surgeries are run early morning from 07:30 on Mondays and 07:00 on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Fridays.  Our Practice Nurse Team are also available at these times.  Please contact Reception for details of availability.

Home Visits

Home visits are reserved for patients who are genuinely too ill to attend surgery. It is now well accepted that a consultation with a doctor at the surgery allows a more complete medical assessment.

If you need a home visit please contact the surgery before 10.00am if at all possible.

Our receptionist will ask for details of your medical condition in order to help the doctor to assess the need for a home visit. The doctor may also telephone you for further details.

In cases of serious illness, this information may be vital to assess the type and speed of medical aid.

Please do not request home visits via the website, contact the surgery by telephone.

7 Day Access Service

If you require a GP appointment out of opening hours you can now use the 7 Day Access Service.

The Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale (HMR) 7 day access service, along with BARDOC allows patients to have access to evening, weekend and Bank Holiday appointments.  This allows patients who struggle to attend their doctors during the week, because of work or family commitments, flexibility to use local health services. 

Patients will not get to see their own doctor during these hours, however the GP or Nurse that they see will have access to their medical record, subject to consent. 

Appointments are available:

  • 18:30 – 21:00 Monday to Friday
  • 08:00 – 18:00 Saturdays and Bank Holidays

Training Practice

The practice gained the status of a teaching practice - responsible for training new general practitioners - in August 2004. There is a possibility that you may be offered an appointment with a trainee but you will be asked to consent to this first.

Trainee general practitioners in the UK are required to have spent a minimum of 2 and half years in accredited hospital training posts. This follows on from their 5 or 6 years training as medical students. On completion of their hospital posts they are required to finish their training in accredited training practices such as Mark Street Surgery.

During their attachment to the practice they are supervised and assessed. On successful completion of vigorous assessments (which includes written and oral exams, video analysis and other work based assessments) they are finally allowed to practice as independent GPs.
