When We Are Closed
St Andrews House is part of the Tameside & Glossop GP Hub service. This is local GP's working together to provide ROUTINE bookable appointments evenings and weekends for patients who find it difficult to see their doctor or nurse during normal surgery opening times. These appointments can be to see a doctor consult a nurse or have blood tests, ear syringing or other procedures. Please contact our receptionists for more details or to arrange one of these appointments.
If you have an urgent problem when the surgery is closed please call NHS 111 Service this is free from a landline and mobile number

Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
