When the Surgery is closed patients registered with the Practice have other alternative ways of seeking medical attention, for example, through the Wigan GP Alliance Service;  the GP Alliance Hubs are managed by local GPs (though not necessarily your own GP) and are open Wednesday afternoon 16.00 to 18.30 hrs and Monday to Friday 18:30 to 20:00 and Saturday & Sunday 10:00 to 16:00 and are operated on a pre-bookable appointment basis (please note appointment booking line is open 09:30 until 19:15 weekdays and 09:30 to 15:15 at weekends); alternatively, you may contact  Bridgewater Out-of-Hour Service (Wednesday afternoon between 13.00 and 18.30 hrs) and NHS 111 at all other times when surgery is closed.  All telephone numbers for the above surgery may be gained by telephoning the Surgery on 01942 807600 when an ansafone message will advise you of how, when and where to seek further medical advice at any given time whilst the surgery is closed.  There is also:
