How to help us help you…
In order for you to get the most from your appointment and to ensure you’re getting the best care, please:
Tell us what the problem is so we can book you with the most suitable clinician.
Complete the online consult form with as much detail as possible.

We are a training practice
At Dukinfield Medical Practice we pride ourselves on being involved in the teaching of medical students.
We undertake the teaching of GP registrars, undergraduate medical students and student nurses who may be present during your consultation. Please help us to train the health professionals of the future. With your consent, some consultations will be videoed.
If you do not want a student present please let us know.
(A GP registrar is a qualified doctor undergoing GP training. They are known as ST1, ST2 or ST3 depending on which year of their three-year training they are in)
