Citizens Advice Manchester

We now have a phone located in the practice which patients can use to contact Citizens Advice Manchester – just lift the receiver to get connected immediately. You can either discuss your issue there and then, or request a call back at a more convenient time; there’s also a voicemail service so if your call can’t be taken you can leave a message for someone to call you back, or member of staff at the surgery can refer you in. The service is there to help with any non-medical issue – problems with benefits, issues with housing, concerns about finances, managing your energy bills, difficulties at work, or just getting more connected to your community and finding activities you can get involved in.
