Need Urgent Dental Care?

If you need help with an urgent dental problem, call our helpline, available from 9am to 9:30pm everyday, including weekends and Bank Holidays.

0161 476 9651 (Local Rate)

Local dental providers offer NHS urgent dental clinics across Cheshire and Merseyside, with urgent appointments for patients who need urgent treatment, advice and support on dental queries or referral to other services.

The service is provided according to strict clinical criteri

a and when you call you'll be assessed by a member of our clinical team to make sure your problem come under either:

  • Trauma - this is usually caused by a blow to the face, a lost filling is not classed as a trauma.
  • Swelling of the face
  • Bleeding, uncontrolled, such as after an extraction
  • Pain that can't be controlled by pain relief medicines.

If you're given an appointment and your problem doesn't fit of the above, you'll still have to pay the NHS fee but may receive advice and not treatment.

Clinic times vary.and at busy times or when your local clinic's not available you may be offered an appointment at an alternative location.

Please not: this is an appointment only service - we do not operate a "drop in" service at any of our surgeries

Tests and Results

Patients can attend the MONDAY morning (9am - 10.45am) drop-in ‘community phlebotomy clinic’ which is upstairs in the Health Centre. You do not need an appointment for this service.

Alternatively blood testing is available by appointment only with Julie, our Health Care Assistant on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday Mornings.

Please note – You may be requested to provide a fasting sample. Fasting means nothing to eat or drink, except water, for 12 hours before your test, however it is important to make sure you continue to drink plenty of water whilst you are fasting.

If we have asked you to make a ROUTINE APPOINTMENT for a blood test please note that ‘routine’ means any time in the next month or so.

Your blood test results should be available within a week. You can telephone the practice for your results although the doctors comment on all results and if there is any follow up action needed we will contact you. If you decide to telephone for your results ideally you should phone between 1pm and 3pm as the telephone lines are very busy when the surgeries are operating. If possible, please avoid telephoning for blood results on Mondays. Please expect to be asked to call back if you ring for test results outside these times.

You can also request access to your test results on-line using on-line services. 

Please note, the reception staff are not clinicians. They are unable to advise you on what your blood results mean. They can only pass on the doctor’s comments.
