The GP Hub launched in December and is helping us to cope with current demand for GP consultations.

The GP Hub is a same day service for all patients registered within the 10 practices of Ordsall and Claremont. It is supporting GP practices over the winter months with the unprecedented demand for GP appointments.

If you are booked into the GP Hub a clinician from the GP Hub team will contact you by, telephone in the first instance, at the approximate given slot time and complete a clinical assessment via the phone. You may need to attend the hub that day for further assessment or to collect a prescription.

When we are at Full Capacity at The UoS Health Centre / Langworthy Medical Practice we will ask you if you would like booking into the GP Hub for a same day consultation.

If you are not currently living at your term time address in Salford please let us know, as we will be unable to book you in for the GP Hub

We cannot pre-book slots for the following day, this an on the day service only.

We are hoping this will help to alleviate the current demands we are facing.
