The Salford Standard

The Salford Standard describes the level of care you should expect when you go to a GP practice in Salford.

Launched from April 2016, the aim is to make it easier to see a GP and for everyone in Salford to get the same level of service and care whichever GP practice they go to. For example, more ways to make appointments, pre-book appointments up to four weeks in advance and same day appointments based on clinical need.
