Welcome to Heywood Health
(Argyle Street Medical Centre & York House Surgery)
The doctors and staff at Heywood Health are proud to offer the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare. The Practice merged on the 1st November 2016 allowing us to offer appointments and services across both sites. We are currently a 4 Partner practice with 3 salaried GP's. We are a training practice and currently have 2 Registrars. We also accommodate medical students.
Our nursing team run many clinics across both sites including the management of chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes, and also offer a wide variety of other medical services including minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups.
We are signed up to the 'Minor Ailment Scheme' run by the pharmacies - contact our reception team for further details.
*From the 20th September 2017, a new Triage Service will be implemented across Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale. Please read the following document for more information:

NHS 111 online
A new digital service is live in Greater Manchester. It provides access to urgent care services for people who prefer to
engage using their computer, mobile phone or other digital device.
Provided by NHS Digital, 111 online uses the same clinical assessment and triaging tools that support the national NHS 111 telephone service.
Non-Attendance of Appointments
If you are unable to attend your appointment please contact the surgery as soon as possible to rearrange/cancel OR reply ‘CANCEL’ to the text message appointment reminder.
Many hours of appointment time is wasted every month due to patients not attending.
Heywood Health takes a Zero Tolerance approach to patients who repeatedly miss their appointments. If 3 appointments are missed within a year the matter will be discussed and there is the possibility that the patient will be removed from the practice list.
