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 leaflet 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 - Handforth. We also have a branch surgery Hulme Hall Medical Group - Cheadle Hulme.
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.
Working with our neighbouring practices we are starting to offer COVID vaccinations. Please don’t contact the practice directly about your vaccination as patients will all be contacted strictly in priority order as the vaccine becomes available. We have no control over the quantity of vaccines or the risk group you have been placed in.
From Monday 12th October we have a new system to book appointments, order medication or communicate with the practice for any reason. Click the link Online requests and follow the instructions where you can leave a message for reception, Nurses, and Doctors for any issues you may have.
If you do not have internet access do not panic the Reception staff will still be available to carry out your request on your behalf by completing the forms online for you.
You can still sign up to our Patient Access Online System to Access, book and cancel your appointments, view blood results and medical records in real time : Click the link Patient Access there is also a great app to have on your phone.
The Flu vaccination season has arrived and this year is especially challenging. We have gone to great lengths to ensure we can vaccinate everyone who is eligible safely.
If you are eligible ( generally this is patients who had a vaccine last year) we will be contacting you by text with your appointment time over the next few weeks.
All our Flu appointments are at Handforth which has been specially adapted for safe vaccination. We made this decision on safety grounds as we can keep patients separate and operate a one way system. We apologise that for some this is more inconvenient but urge you to accept your appointment. Adult appointments will be all day Monday to Friday. We will be arranging childrens’ clinics on some Saturdays.
The government have promised vaccination for all adults between 50 and 65 who do not normally receive a Flu vaccine. The government have not yet provided details on how this is to be organised but it is likely to happen after November. We will provide more details when we are able. For now, during September and October, we will be concentrating on those who normally get a Flu vaccine each year.
When you attend please arrive at your appointment time. Enter Handforth through the main door if the entrance is clear of other patients, and you will then be directed to one of two rooms. You will have your vaccination and then leave Handforth via a rear door. We regret we cannot do other tasks such as blood tests during these Flu clinics.
Because the Flu clinics are challenging to run we are having to operate a reduced service in other areas- especially nursing and blood test appointments. Please do be supportive of us as we juggle the demands on our staff.
Please see a video we have prepared rearding the Flu clinics.
