Our Surgery

Our friendly and professional team have been meeting the medical needs of the local Macclesfield community for more than a century, so you can rest assured that your own and your family’s health are in very safe hands. Whether you’re new to the area and need to register with a GP or whether you’re an existing patient who needs to make an appointment, order a repeat prescription or get your test results, you’ve come to the right place. We’re dedicated to helping you to improve your wellbeing, so you’ll also find plenty of helpful patient information here for every member of the family.

How do I…

Simply download, print out and complete a new patient registration form at home and bring it into the surgery. We have printed copies here if you don’t have a printer. Once this has been signed, your details will be added onto our system so you can book appointments and contact our practice.

Please note that we have recently made some changes to the way our appointment system works.

If you would like to book an appointment, ask about a problem or medical condition, or are looking for admin help, please contact us via our eConsult page.

To begin an eConsult, please click here. Or alternatively, you can also click on the “Consult our Doctors online” button at the top of the page. 

Once submitted, you will receive a response within two working days, though it is usually quicker.

For more information, please click here to access our guide to eConsult. If you need any assistance completing the form, please do not hesitate to contact us.

If you need to cancel an appointment please give us a call.

Cumberland House Surgery uses two online services.

The first is called eConsult. This let’s you:

  • Arrange appointments with the practice
  • Get quick clinical advice & treatment online
  • Save unnecessary trips to the practice
  • Request fit notes, check test results, request letters and other admin forms

You do not need to register for this service.

The second is called Patient Access. This website and mobile app lets you:

  • Order your repeat prescriptions
  • Access your medical records

To register for our online service, just pop in to the practice with photo ID such as a passport or driving licence, and a utility bill in your name dated within the last 3 months.

For illnesses lasting 7 days or less, you don’t need a sick note but you may need to complete a self-certification form. You can pick one up at our surgery reception or on this website –

For absences of over 7 days, you’ll need medical evidence for your employer. For this, you’ll need a doctor’s Fit Note. Your doctor can also give you a “Fitness For Work” note which helps you get back to work more quickly.

Housebound patients can receive a home visit from a doctor by calling the practice between 8am and 10.30pm. You’ll need to give some details about your problem to our receptionist so your doctor can call you to carry out an assessment to determine whether an at-home appointment is appropriate.

Children and babies should be brought into our surgery for appointments. We always make sure that children are seen as quickly as possible.

Your GP may refer you to the community nursing team for home visits, and anyone who has recently had a baby or who is a newly registered patient with a child under 5 will receive a home visit from our health visitor. 

If you need a repeat prescription, you can choose from one of the following three options:

  • Online at:
  • In person at our surgery
  • By post with a stamped addressed envelope to send it back to you

We don’t accept requests for repeat prescriptions over the phone.

Make sure your repeat prescription request reaches us 7 days before the due date. Allow 2 working days between requesting and collecting your prescription. If you’re ordering your medication early, tell us the reason with your prescription request to avoid delays.

Some local chemists offer a collection or delivery repeat prescription service. Contact your pharmacy to find out more.

Patients on repeat medications need to see a nurse or doctor for an annual medication review. You’ll see a notification on your repeat prescription slip when yours is due. Make sure to arrange an appointment in plenty of time to avoid delays to your prescription.

When you’ve had a test, you’ll be told how long it’ll take to get the result. Call our surgery after this time if you haven’t heard anything.

Test results are handled by our practice secretaries who you can call direct. Please call the secretary for the doctor who sent you for the test, between 10am and 4pm:

Doctor who sent you for the test: Dr Hodgson, Dr Maund, Joanne Rowe
Secretary: Mrs Lisa Stockton
Phone number: 01625 264063

Doctor who sent you for the test: Dr Durrow, Dr Paterson, Dr Jaberi, Dr Finch, Dr Joseph
Secretary: Mrs Michelle Stewart
Phone number: 01625 264066

Doctor who sent you for the test: Dr Mullan, Dr Weidner, Dr Anjum, Dr Wilson, Marie Evans
Secretary: Miss Stacey Byrne
Phone number: 01625 264064

Please allow at least two working days to call for blood test results and five working days for x-ray results.

Our data protection and confidentiality policy means we can only give results to the patient themselves without prior permission.

If you need medical advice urgently and you feel it cannot wait until our surgery re-opens, call the out-of-hours service on 111.

You can talk to a medical professional to explain your problem and may be given advice or asked to come for an urgent appointment at the out of hours centre.

The service is open:

Monday – Thursday, 6.30pm – 8am
Friday – Monday, 6pm – 8am

Home visits are only made in exceptional circumstances.

In a genuine emergency call 999. Chest pain and/or shortness of breath are considered to be emergencies.
