ONLINE APPOINTMENTS NOW LIVE - Please contact The Practice for registration details
REPEAT PRESCRIPTION REQUESTS ONLINE NOW LIVE
We do not process via the website any requests for items not on your repeat prescription. If the item you require is not on the white reorder form we kindly request that you contact the surgery for further advice or book to see a member of the clinical team. As a practice, the safety of our patients is important to us. We have made this small change to make requesting and issuing medication safer for YOU.
Feeling unwell? Remember Prestwich Walk-in Centre
Remember Prestwich Walk-in Centre for advice and treatment for minor illnesses and injuries.
Through the remainder of the winter period, until the end of March 2014, during the busiest times, a GP will be joining the experienced Nursing Team at Prestwich Walk-in Centre. The GP will be able to assess and treat patients with more complex minor illnesses and injuries. This will reduce the need for patients with more complex problems to visit another NHS service, whilst encouraging patients to use the Walk-in Centre, rather than A&E, for minor conditions.
Prestwich Walk-in Centre is open every day of the week; you can just walk in with no appointment needed. It offers an alternative choice for anyone who can’t get a same day appointment at their own GP practice, when they are suffering from an ailment, illness or injury that needs assessing quickly, but isn’t serious enough to require a visit to A&E.
As a reminder, the Walk-in Centre on Fairfax Road Prestwich is open from 8am to 8pm, every day of the year.
The Walk-in Centre team can provide advice and treatment for a wide range of minor illnesses and injuries including cuts and small wounds; coughs, colds and flu-like symptoms; rashes and sore throats; urinary tract infections and muscle and joint injuries including strains and sprains. The team includes nurses who can prescribe some medications if required, for example to treat an infection (not repeat prescriptions).
Thank you for considering using Prestwich Walk-in Centre for minor illnesses and injuries and keeping A&E available for people who are extremely unwell and need urgent medical attention.
