The new centre – our new broader and better offer – replaces the existing Walk in Centre (WIC) at Ashton Primary Care Centre (which closes the day before). 

Initially people with an urgent need will be able seek support at the Urgent Treatment Centre (UTC) by walking in between 9.00am – 9.00pm, 7 days a week. 

Later in the year as well as the ability to walk in, anyone registered with a GP practice in Tameside & Glossop will have access to a range of bookable appointments through their GP or NHS111.  This will complement the range of appointments currently available in the evenings and at weekends through the Primary Care Access Service (PCAS).
