Welcome to Walkden Medical Centre Online

Welcome to our practice website. We aim to provide all of our patients with a comprehensive range of healthcare services covering one-off problems to longer term illnesses.

As well as being able to see when we are open at the click of a mouse we’ve made it easier for you to do a number of things. Check out how to order a repeat prescription or cancel your appointment online.

Making an appointment

You can ring us on 0161 702 5310.

To provide you with the best possible standards of care and point you in the right direction when making your appointment -we’ll ask about the reason for your consultation when you request an appointment. This will ensure you get the most appropriate treatment as well as helping to reduce waiting times. If you’d rather not say, please just let us know.

We have now added the facility for patients to book a range of appointments online and access summary medical information online from their records. Patients have been able to order their repeat prescriptions online since 2007 and this is a real time-saving, safe and responsive service, all-round. To sign up for any or all of the online services, patients must produce evidence of their identity and current address, in person, at reception. We will make alternative arrangements for access, for patients who are housebound.

Not all problems need our help initially, so we encourage everyone with minor illness or skin conditions to consult their pharmacist first. They will refer you on to our nurse practitioner or GP if it’s a problem they cannot help with.


You can find details here. You can talk to your pharmacists in confidence - even about the most personal symptoms. Most pharmacies now have a quiet area away from other customers where you can speak to the pharmacist more privately.

  • For first line help and advice with self-limiting illness, eg coughs, colds, sore throats, fever, sickness, diarrhoea, etc
  • Especially useful for advice about choosing suitable cough & cold remedies when already taking prescribed medication (as they can advise about the most suitable choice)
  • Help with medication queries
  • Head lice treatments
  • “Morning after” contraception (from selected pharmacies)
