GP Surgeries – core opening times

Bolton’s GP surgeries are open from 8.00am to 6.30pm Monday to Friday, including Wednesday afternoons.

Parents will be pleased to know that children under 12 must be assessed on the same day if they call their GP for an appointment. This could be a telephone consultation to begin with however, a child may be invited down to the surgery if required. In cases where a child needs urgent hospital care, this can be arranged directly by the GP.

These opening times are a core component of the Bolton Quality Contract – an initiative developed by the CCG to enable the public to gain easier access to their GP.

Access to GP surgeries outside of core hours

If you require an appointment between 6.30pm and 9.30pm Monday to Friday or a morning appointment at the weekend, contact your GP practice as usual, and you will be advised to attend one of three hubs, currently at:

Waters Meeting Health Centre, Winifred Kettle Centre and the Urgent Treatment Centre, based at the Royal Bolton Hospital (access via Main Entrance).

If you need urgent help from a GP, day or night, please ring your GP practice as normal and you'll be directed to the right service at the right time.
