Our Healthier Manchester

In the two years since the Manchester Locality Plan started and listening to patient and public feedback, we’ve been changing things to help it work:

 

  •     We’ve changed how we plan, prioritise and buy health services.

  •     Our hospitals have merged into one new organisation that’s improving services.

  •     There’s now more care closer to people’s homes.

  •     Our mental health services have gained strength by joining together into a single organisation.

 

The changes to our structures are only part of what’s needed; the key to a healthier Manchester and to reducing health inequalities is people – like you. We must all change the way we think and act about our own health, the health of those we love and care for, the health of our wider neighbourhood, and of the communities that make up our city.
Please take the time to give us your feedback. This will help us better understand how much you know about health and care services in Manchester and what actions we need to take in partnership with you, communities, neighbourhoods and the health and care system. You can read the full update on the Our Healthier Manchester website. 


Our Homeless Service is changing!

From the 29th January we will be operating drop in appointments for registered homeless patients from 2:30-4:30 pm Monday-Thursday. While we will still be operating drop in sessions on a Wednesday it will be a slimmed down service from what we currently offer. This is in response to feedback from homeless patients who have requested more equitable access to appointments throughout the week and also changes to GP opening hour requirements. Please see the timetable below for a full list of which services will be available on each day.

Flu Vaccinations

Our scheduled vaccination clinics have ended now, But not to worry, if you are eligible for a Flu Vaccination or have a child aged 2-3 years you can pop down to the surgery and let reception know. We'll be able to book you in there and then providing we have a Nurse available.
