Appointment Information


Bodey Medical Centre operates an Online Triage System each morning. You will be asked to complete a short questionnaire in order for the GP to assess your medical/ admin query appropriately. Online Triage is open Monday to Friday from 8.00 am and will close when we have reached capacity.


If you are unable to complete the online form please ring reception 0161 248 6644. The Reception team will be able to complete the Triage Form for you.
The Receptionists will need information for the doctor. Please be understanding of the need for Receptionists to ask questions.

Patients can request a certain GP but this is not always possible. We will accommodate where possible though.
These completed forms go to the on call GP who will then appoint an appropriate appointment for you. This appointment will aim to be within 2 weeks.
