St Johns Medical Centre


Appointments can be booked via our surgery telephone system between 08.00 and 18.30, Monday to Friday, selecting call option 1. Our phone lines can become very busy during peak times and we would ask that, where possible, any non urgent phone calls are made after 10am each morning.

We have an easy-to-use auto check-in facility at reception which enables patients to check in for their appointments directly on arrival at the surgery and helps to reduce waiting time during busy periods.

If you need to cancel an appointment, please try to give at least 48 hours notice to enable the appointment to be used by another patient. Please call the surgery and select call option 3 to leave an answerphone message, or use our on-line appointments service.

Routine appointments

St Johns is a group practice so patients can see any of the six GP partners based on the next available appointment time throughout the practice. Patients preferring to see a specific GP may have to arrange appointments further in advance to ensure availability. Routine appointments can be booked up to 2 weeks in advance and we also offer a limited number of 48 hour appointments for patients who need to be seen quickly.

Urgent same day appointments

For patients who need to be seen urgently, same day appointments are available with the duty doctor, or with our nurse practitioner who is able to diagnose and prescribe. Appointment requests may be triaged for priority and assessment of appropriate treatment.

Evening appointments

Evening appointments are available each day from Monday to Thursday for patients who find it difficult to come to the surgery during our normal opening hours. In addition, one evening each week the surgery offers late appointments until 8pm. The day will vary each week; please check with the patient services team for the details.

Extended Access Appointments – Evenings, Saturday & Sunday Mornings

The practice is used each weekday evening (Monday – Friday) and at a weekend by Trafford Primary Health to offer Trafford patients an appointment with a Trafford Nurse or GP.   However, as the surgery is run by Trafford Primary Health, our patients are unable to collect prescriptions, blood forms or make an appointment.  Please continue to collect prescriptions, blood forms, make appointments or telephone the Practice during our normal working hours Monday-Friday.  Appointments are available Monday – Friday 6.30pm – 8.00pm and Saturday and Sunday, 9.00am – 1.00pm.
