Triage Appointment

Same Day Appointment

Patients requiring an urgent appointment on the same day will be able to call 0161 320 8788 from 08:00 am but before 11:00 am. 

Please call after 11:00 am on the same telephone number for routine appointments.

Patients will initially receive a telephone call from either the GP or the Nurse Practitioner.

The GP or the Nurse Practitioner will give telephone advice or arrange an appointment at the surgery as appropriate.

Please note that all telephone calls at the practice are recorded to ensure optimum service levels and for training purposes.

 

Text Reminder Service

To assist patients in remembering to keep their appointments we are able to offer a SMS text reminder service. The service will send you a reminder text message between 3 and 7 days prior to your appointment. If you wish to use this service please let us know your current mobile telephone number.

 

SMS Text Message Consent Form

Denton Medical Practice would like to offer you the ability to receive text message reminders for your appointments booked at the surgery.

The SMS service should not be solely relied upon, as the responsibility of attending and cancelling appointments still rests with you, but we hope this will make things easier.

So that you can continue receiving SMS text appointment reminders, we need you to explicitly consent by completing the online form below.

Cancelling Appointments

If you cannot attend your given appointment please call 0161 320 8788  to cancel or reschedule.

On average 85 people every month fail to turn up for their appointments without informing us.

These slots could be put to good use and offered to another patient, allowing the doctors and nurses to reduce any backlog of patients and reduce waiting times.

Please think of others when you can no longer attend or need a scheduled appointment.

You can also cancel your appointment online by submitting the form below. This has to be done at least 48 hours before your appointment is due and on a Thursday if your appointment is on Monday or Tuesday the following week.

Self Check-In for Appointments

We have a screen available in the reception area to enable patients to check-in for their appointments.

This is very quick and easy to use. If you would like assistance, please ask a member of the reception team.
