Manchester Road Surgery launches early morning appointments

Manchester Road Surgery is to trial an early morning surgery on Mondays.

For three months from 30 April, patients will be able to book advance Monday appointments from 7.30am. The early morning slots are aimed at those with work or other commitments that find attending surgery during our normal hours difficult.

The surgery has asked people not to make an early morning appointment if you can come in during normal surgery hours (from 8.30am).

New surgery website

The news comes as the surgery launches its new website at

Visitors to the website can keep up with all latest surgery news. You’ll also find links to other websites where a wealth of health and wellbeing related information can be accessed.

The surgery website also reports on a newly formed patient group, and how patient power is making a difference at the surgery after the group contributed ideas that were used to develop a patient survey.

You can now also order repeat prescriptions via the internet and will soon be able to book advance appointments.
