Dr Susan Glicher
18th November 2014
After 25 years as a partner, Cheadle Medical Practice will say Goodbye to Dr Susan Glicher as of December 2014. Susan has battled for many years with a long-term illness, and has been granted Ill-health retirement. It is to her enormous credit that she continued to work so effectively for so long, with few knowing she was ill at all. She has been a driving force at the centre of this practice, and was also involved at PCG then PCT level, making her responsible for many improvements in patient care in Cheadle and in Stockport as a whole.
I first worked with Susan when we were both registrars (trainee GPs) at Cheadle in the late 1980s. Through the years she has been an absolute pleasure to have as a partner and colleague. We will miss her common sense, leadership, clear thinking, and most of all her company.
I know you will all join me in wishing her a very long, happy and healthy time in retirement.
Cheadle Medical Practice
Cheadle Medical Practice is physically a very different place than it was in 1988 when I first joined the surgery. There are now over 35 people working in the expanded building all dedicated to working in the NHS. I am proud to have been part of such a wonderful team.
It is a shame that my departure has been quite so sudden which means that I have not had the chance to say good bye and thank you to the patients I have come to know well over the last 27 years. I hope that you will understand.
It has been a privilege to be part of the lives of so many people in Cheadle for so long. I will miss you but know that I am leaving you in good hands.

Unfortunately we are currently experiencing difficulties with GP and staff absence due to sickness. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and ask that you bear with us during this time.
One Click Away
You can now access a number of services online. Ordering a repeat prescription or sending us your comments are both just a click away. If you’re not yet registered with us you can download the necessary forms here too. Join our virtual patient advisory group or take one of our surveys, just follow the links.
New Telephone Access Protocol
On Monday 3rd March 2014 our new telephone access protocol was introduced. The purpose of this is to try to help spread calls more evenly through the day, hopefully relieving some of the congestion at busiest times and improving response times.
To book urgent/same day appointments or a home visit please phone between 8-10am
For general enquiries and routine pre-bookable appointments please phone after 10am
For results between 3-6pm
To check if your prescription is ready please phone after 5pm
Secretaries will be available to speak to regarding any Choose & Book or referral queries only, between 1:30-2:30pm on 0161 426 9088
Appointment Cancellation - Text Number
Following feedback from our 2013 patient survey, we now have a dedicated number for you to text in to cancel your appointment. The number is:
07742 230 630
Please try and cancel at least one hour before your appointment time leaving your name, date of birth and appointment details.
Please note this is for cancellations only. We will not reply to your text. We hope this will make cancelling your appointment easier and reduce the number of patients failing to attend, allowing more appointments to be available for other patients needing to be seen.
Keep track of progress on our building extension and renovation project using the links.
Thanks to all who helped on Saturday (15th March 2014) with digging and planting of our new Edible Garden at the Ashfield Road gable end bed. The weather was perfect - cool and dry - Sustainable Living Stockport's Groundworks project means we have a border planted with fruit, veg and herbs. In the fullness of time, as the plants mature, the produce will be available for all to enjoy. Thanks to Abigail, Rick, and volunteers whose ages ranged from under 10 to over 80 the work was enjoyable and efficient!
