WE NOW HAVE A NEW TELEPHONE SYSTEM AND A NEW TELPHONE NUMBER


0161-983-0190


We have updated our telephone system in response to your feedback to improve the quality of our service delivery. This means a change in telephone provider and also our surgery telephone number to 0161-983-0190.  This system is very new to us and we really do appreciate your support and patience with us as we get to grips with it!


Surgery Connect supports highly efficient call management across multiple or single practices with features that are built around the needs of general practice:



  • A call recording functionality is available for landlines and mobiles, inbound and outbound to support both patients and surgery.



  • Dealing with peaks of inbound calls when appointment lines open is challenge. Queue busting allows patients to be automatically called back, rather than have to wait in a queue.



  • Call routing can distribute calls across multiple sites and groups, and be linked to the needs of specific patients.

  • Call and video consultation recordings and history are linked to individual patient records.

  • Single click dialling of patients from clinical records saves time and avoids errors.

  • Administrators can listen in to reception calls, helping support staff in training.

  • Automated voice reminders can be set up, helping in times of high demand.



  • Calendar events can be added to control hours and days of operation, and automatically signpost callers to alternative numbers.

  • Surgery Connect is resilient: mobile phone back up means that calls can be routed to mobiles, in case phone lines lose connectivity.

  • Multiple languages can be supported, by recognising the speech input of the caller.

  • Inbound and outbound video calls are supported, and we are working on the use of AI to help process calls







When We Are Closedtelephone_brown

NHS Direct

In the case of urgent need when the practice is closed you can call NHS 111 to speak to a triage nurse. Your needs will be assessed and advice offered or arrangements made for you to see a doctor.

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.

Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.

There are occasions when the practice has to close for staff to undertake mandatory training. Where possible we try to arrange this for the last Wednesday of the month. 

When this happens from 12:00 the phones will be switched over to an emergency line for patients who have an emergency need where they will be triage by the on-call doctor.
