Urgent Treatment Centre (UTC)
A new Urgent Treatment Centre (UTC) opens on 29 April 2019 at the Tameside Hospital site (next to A&E).
The new centre – our new broader and better offer – replaces the existing Walk in Centre (WIC) at Ashton Primary Care Centre (which closes the day before).
Initially people with an urgent need will be able seek support at the Urgent Treatment Centre (UTC) by walking in between 9.00am – 9.00pm, 7 days a week.
Later in the year as well as the ability to walk in, anyone registered with a GP practice in Tameside & Glossop will have access to a range of bookable appointments through their GP or NHS111. This will complement the range of appointments currently available in the evenings and at weekends through the Primary Care Access Service (PCAS).
IMPORTANT NOTICE: All calls may be monitored, recorded, stored and used in any telephone, email or other communication with you, in order to check any instructions given to us for training purposes, crime prevention and to improve the quality of our services.

We can now offer early morning GP and Nurse appointments from 7:00 am on Monday mornings (start date 13.08.18).
These will be bookable in advance only. We hope this will help with the demand for early morning appointments for those patients who work during the day.

From 24th September there will be a few changes to our opening hours.
The surgery will open until 6:30 pm on Fridays (instead of 6pm).
