Core GP hours

Extended GP hours

If you require an appointment outside of these times, then the extended working hours service provides access to additional appointments in the evening and at the weekend. The extended working hours service is available Monday to Friday from 6.30pm until 8pm and Saturday and Sunday from 8am until 6pm (including Bank Holidays, with the exception of Christmas Day) at three ‘hub’ locations across the borough.

Patients who are registered with a GP practice in Bury can access these appointments with a GP in until 8pm on a weekday or from 8am until 6pm at weekends, and a Practice Nurse from 8am until 1pm on a Saturday.

Evening and weekend appointments are available on a pre-bookable or book on-the-day basis. Patients must contact their GP practice first for availability.
