All GP practices in Bury are open from 8am until 6.30pm on normal working days. Contact your practice during these times to speak to a receptionist who can help with any queries you may have.
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, Christmas Day availability may vary) at three ‘hub’ locations across the borough (appointments may not be with your usual GP).
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.
Out of hours
For urgent medical care out of hours call your GP practice for further instructions.
All practice teams have access to learning time initiatives which is protected time the practice can use to ensure all staff have time and space for continued development. These take place once a month between 1 and 3.30 pm. During this time calls are handled by the out of hours provider.
