Register as a patient
We are using a new online service called Register with a GP surgery
that makes it easy to register with this GP surgery. Just fill in this quick
online form to start the process. You do not need proof of address or
immigration status, ID or an NHS number. The service is designed and
run by the NHS, so your personal information is safe. It cuts our
administrative workload and makes it easier for you to register.
Paper forms are still available at the practice if you need one.
Here for you
Appointments are available:
Weekdays & Evenings – Please refer to Doctors below for individual working days
Weekends at the Hub (request via the online form)
Top Tips when consulting with Park Green Surgery
- Give us as much information as possible and let us know how you want us to help – We are here to support you and we only know what you want if you tell us.
- Tell us when you are available – Missed appointments are a big problem.
- Look out for text messages from the surgery – We will often make use of text messages and we aim to contact you the same day.
- Please complete the online system yourself or on behalf of someone else
- Consider other services as your first line of contact, if appropriate:
Self-care, Your local pharmacy, NHS website or NHS 111

Changes to our Appointment System
Since the introduction of our new appointment system on 4th July 2023, we are sure many of our patients have unanswered questions and hope the updated information we have put together will give you reassurance that these changes are for the benefit of all our patients.
The friendly and professional team here at Park Green Surgery would like to welcome you to our surgery page – the best place to find out everything you need to know about keeping yourself and your family healthy and well. We hope you’ll find our information user-friendly and a convenient resource that makes it even easier to improve your wellness, with online facilities that allow you to arrange your repeat prescription, book an appointment and access useful information about our practice. Whether you’re new to the Macclesfield area and need to register with a GP, or whether you’re one of our existing patients, you’re in very safe hands.
How do I…
Please see our welcome letter and patient information leaflet below. They will give you details on how to register with us and important information about our surgery.
Once this has been signed and received, your details will be added onto our system so you can submit an online request via our website for an appointment or enquiry.
All requests for GP appointments are reviewed by our team of doctors first. Sometimes your query can be resolved via a text directly from the doctor. Where this is not possible and an appointment is necessary, the doctor will contact you to confirm when to either expect a telephone call or to confirm a Face-to-Face appointment at the surgery.
Click on the Consult your doctor button above to access this.
If you are not available or cannot attend an appointment for any reason, please use your online service facility to cancel or contact our Reception team as soon as possible, so that we can offer the appointment to someone else.
Operating our appointments in this way allows us to deal with an increased number of contacts each day, as not every patient needs to attend the surgery. It means that those patients who do need a face-to-face appointment with our doctors and nurses can get them in a timely fashion.
Of course, not everyone can use the internet. A friend or relative can put in a request on their behalf, or people can phone our trained Reception Team who will submit a request for them.
As a practice we would like you to consider whether contacting the surgery as a first line of contact is the most suitable option.
Please spend a moment considering other services which may be better able to assist with your current issue:
- Your local pharmacist can advise on many minor ailments and medication queries
- The NHS website has excellent information and guidance – https://www.nhs.uk/
- NHS111 should be used for all evening, overnight and weekend enquiries as the surgery is closed
Park Green Surgery uses an online service called Patient Access. This website and mobile app lets you:
- View, book and cancel select appointments at our practice
- 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.
Further access can be granted on request for other services e.g. Blood Results
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 – www.gov.uk/government
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 the visiting doctor by using the Consult your doctor online button above, or contacting our trained Reception Team who will submit a request on the patients behalf. We ask that you do this as early possible on the day required. 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.
We DO NOT take prescription requests over the telephone.
To order your repeat prescription you can order online using your Patient Access or NHS app or request via Consult our Doctors Online on the website. You can use your prescription tear-off slip and put it in the requests box on the ground floor of our surgery or put your request in writing at the reception desk.
Macclesfield pharmacies also offer a collection and delivery service so you can also give your prescription request to your usual pharmacy.
Make sure to leave a minimum of 2 working days to ensure your request is processed in time, and only tick the medications that you need.
Anyone on a repeat prescription will need a regular medication review. When you receive a notification on your tear-off slip, make an appointment immediately to avoid delays in your medication.
To request a current acute medication which is not on repeat please request via Consult our Doctors Online on the website and it will be sent to a GP for review.
When you’ve had a test, you’ll be told how long it’ll take to get the result. The surgery will contact you if your results need discussing.
To view your results online, please request for Enhanced Online Access.
Our receptionists can only relay messages from your doctor, they cannot comment on your 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.

We are upgrading to the next phase of the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) which will mean that almost all our prescriptions will be processed electronically from the 7th September 2020.
Electronic prescriptions help save the NHS money.
You will receive your prescriptions in the same way as you do now.
Read more about EPS on the NHS website.
In order to reduce unnecessary attendance at healthcare facilities, one of the routine procedures we are suspending during the coronavirus outbreak is routine 3-monthly B12 injections.
All patients on routine 3-monthly B12 injections can safely postpone their next injection until after the COVID-19 social isolation measures have been relaxed, even if this takes six months or more.
This is because patients who have been having regular injections for more than 12 months will have extremely high levels of B12 in their body and have no urgent need to attend NHS centres during this unusual time.
Patients may wish to buy an oral B12 supplement, which are widely available in health shops and online. A suggested oral dose of between 10 (ten) and 50 (fifty) micrograms daily can be taken.
Dr David Morris
On behalf of Park Green Surgery
We charge for some tasks outside of normal NHS medical services.
All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (e.g. average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.
The average pay for GPs working in Park Green Surgery in the 2021/22 financial year was £77,813 before tax and National Insurance.
This is for 4 full time GPs and 8 part time GPs who worked in the practice for more than 6 months.
EU Exit advice for patients
We have heard from many of our patients with questions around their health and care as a consequence of an EU exit. The best source of information can be found on www.nhs.uk. This website will be updated on a regular basis.
Information regarding medicines
Please keep ordering your repeat prescriptions and taking your medicines as normal. It’s very important you don’t order more medicines than normal. If you do, then it may mean that other people won’t be able to get their medicines. Further information is available on www.nhs.uk
