We will be using this website to keep you informed of all the latest news and events happening at the practice. We hope this helps improve your experience of our services.
We are dedicated to providing you with a friendly, caring , safe and efficient family health service.
Even if you enjoy good health, you will probably need our services at some time. This website tells you the way we run our practice and the full range of services that are available to you.
We work from two surgery premises, our main surgery is Hulme Hall Medical Group - Cheadle Hulme. We also have a branch surgery Hulme Hall Medical Group - Handforth.
Both surgeries have ramps for wheelchair access. Please inform the receptionist when you make your appointment if you require any assistance into the surgery from your vehicle and they will be pleased to help you.
Some of you will have noticed my absence over the last months and I’d like to explain what’s happening. During 2021 I became unwell and needed to take time off work. This was a very difficult decision but was the right one for my health. Since that time, I have received great support and treatment and am doing well but have realised that I will not be able to return to work as a GP. I will be officially leaving Hulme Hall Medical Group in the summer.
It is almost exactly 29 years since I first started work here as a trainee GP. The time has gone so quickly, and there have been so many changes and challenges along the way. It has been a great privilege to have been your doctor and for you to place your trust in me when things are not going well.
I wish you all well for the future. Please be kind to the hard-working practice team at Hulme Hall who continue to do their best for you under extremely difficult circumstances.

Stepping Hill Hospital is seeing an increase demand from patients and anticipate longer than normal wait times; Therefore, we would like to advise of other options to help patients choose alternative and right care options
Everyones co-operation is very much appreciated.
We have very limited availability for GP appointments. Our online option to request a medical appointment will be suspended when the practice is closed (and on occasions, at extremely busy times throughout the day) in order for us manage the demand for medical appointments safely.
We are politely asking our patients requesting an appointment with the GP to contact us after 11am if it is not of an urgent nature.
To help reassure our patients concerned on not being able to seek GP appointment, we would like to advise that the Local Pharmacist do offer expert advice on a wide range of long-term conditions and common illnesses such as coughs, colds and stomach upsets as well as treatments for minor ailments and allergies.
If you need more urgent medical attention, but it's not a life-threatening situation, you can go to an urgent treatment centre, also known as a walk-in centre or minor injury unit.
Conditions that can be treated at an urgent treatment centre include sprains and strains, suspected broken limbs, minor head injuries, cuts and grazes, bites and stings, minor scalds and burns, ear and throat infections, skin infections and rashes, eye problems, coughs and colds, high temperature in child and adults, stomach pain, being sick (vomiting) and diarrhoea and emergency contraception. If you're not sure what to do NHS 111 can help if you need urgent medical help or you're not sure what to do. They will ask questions about your symptoms so you get the help you need.
If you need to go to A&E, NHS 111 will book an arrival time. This might mean you spend less time in A&E. This also helps with social distancing.
You can get help from 111.nhs.uk or call 111. It's available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
