Use of Accident and Emergency

The accident and emergency department at Tameside hospital is extremely busy and frankly very close to breaking point. Should you attend, you will experience very long waits and delays - probably over 4 hours.

Accident and Emergency should only be used for life threatening emergencies or following a serious accident where you may have broken bones etc.

You will be seen much faster and in a more appropriate setting if you use one of the following services

Your GP Practice - we have an urgent surgery everyday Monday through Friday,  Pleae call us and book in for the same day

Ashton Walk-in Centre - Located on Old Street, Ashton-u-Lyne.  They are open 8am-8pm, 7 days a week, 364 days per year.  Just walk-in, no appointment necessary

Out of Hours Service You can contact Go-to-Doc from 6.30pm until 8.00am and on the weekends when we are closed.  They will either ask you to come down to their offices or will visit you at home if that is appropriate.  You can contact them on 0161 336 3252

PLEASE DO NOT USE ACCIDENT AND EMERGENCY UNLESS YOU HAVE A LIFE THREATENING PROBLEM
