Urgent Care and Out of Hours

Urgent Care

In case of serious illness or accident your best option would be to attend the hospital Accident & Emergency Department at Fairfield General Hospital. Please remember though that a third of visitors to A&E can be treated by another NHS service so A&E should only be used in an absolute emergency. The information below will give you alternative services to A&E for less urgent conditions. If you do need to attend A&E and cannot make your own way there by car or public transport or with help from a relative or neighbour, then you will need to call an ambulance by dialing 999.

If you need to see a doctor urgently we do have a number of appointments available on the day for patients needing urgent treatment.

The NHS provides Walk-In-Centres (WICs) which are staffed by specially trained nurses who can deal with minor illnesses and injuries, give advice, emergency contraception etc. There are WICs at Bury and Prestwich and they are open 7 days a week Please see below for the addresses and opening times;

Bury WIC

First floor, Moorgate Primary Care Centre, 22 Derby Way, Bury, BL9 0NJ

Open from 7am – 3pm seven days a week (last check in is 30 minutes prior to closing to allow staff to effectively and appropriately assess people). Find out more about Bury WIC

Prestwich WIC

Fairfax Road, Prestwich, M25 1BT

Open from 12pm to 8pm seven days a week (last check in is 30 minutes prior to closing to allow staff to effectively and appropriately assess people). Find out more about Prestwich WIC.

At the Bury Walk-In-Centre sites there is also a Dental Access Centre where patients may attend for NHS dental care if they are not registered with a dentist. (If you are registered with a dentist then your own dentist has the responsibility for providing your routine care and emergency out of hours arrangements). Doctors are not trained or qualified to provide dental advice and you should always, even for urgent out of hours problems, contact a dentist instead of a doctor if you have a dental problem.
