(Please quote the minor ailment scheme when attending).

Salford pharmacies now provide minor ailment care for Salford patients.  If you do not pay for your prescriptions, you will receive this care and treatment free of charge and will save you time in not having to attend the doctor’s surgery for an appointment. Please ask your local pharmacy or pick up a leaflet from the practice reception desk.

Practice Pharmacist

If you need to discuss your medication or need a medication review, please make an appointment for a telephone consultation to see one of our Practice Pharmacists, Fiona Tang or Gemma Nicholson.


Telephone Consultation

Due to the covid pandemic, our clinicians will do a telephone consultation first with every patient and if clinically necessary will invite you in for a face to face appointment.


Routine Appointments

You will be offered the next available telephone consultation with any one of the doctors or nurse practitioners within the practice. You can see a particular GP of your choice, but you may have a longer wait.


Urgent / Same Day Appointments

If you feel you need to be seen urgently (the same day) you must inform the receptionist of this and you will be asked for your symptoms, this request has come from the doctors and the receptionists are following this protocol. You may then either fitted in with a GP or nurse practitioner. You may be given a telephone triage slot the same day with any one of the doctors. The GP will be informed that you have requested an urgent appointment.  If all appointments for the same day have been taken, you will not be given an appointment and may be asked to call back the next day.

Fit notes (originally known as a sick note) are not classed as urgent. Please make a routine appointment in plenty of time for a fit note as they can be backdated.

Please call at 8am for a morning appointment and after 11am for an afternoon appointment.


Cancelling an Appointment

To cancel your appointment please telephone the surgery giving as much notice as possible, so we are able to use that slot for another patient. The practice loses many clinical hours due to patients not cancelling and not attending their appointment, these appointments could be used for another patient.  

Non-urgent advice: Notice

Please always cancel any appointment you cannot make.

If you persistently do not attend your appointments and do not cancel your appointment in time, you will be asked to find an alternative GP and be removed off the Silverdale practice list.
