Noticeboard

If you or a member of your household have COVID symptoms:

If you have symptoms of COVID-19 however mild, you must self-isolate for at least 10 days from when your symptoms started. You should arrange to have a test to see if you have COVID-19 – go to testing to arrange. Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.

If you are not experiencing symptoms but have tested positive for COVID-19 you also must self-isolate for at least 10 days, starting from the day the test was taken. If you develop symptoms during this isolation period, you must restart your 10-day isolation from the day you develop symptoms.

After 10 days, if you still have a temperature you should continue to self-isolate and seek medical advice over the telephone, DO NOT go to your GP, pharmacy or hospital. 

If you live with others, all other household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the household became ill or if they do not have symptoms, from the day their test was taken. If anyone else in the household starts displaying symptoms, they must stay at home for at least 10 days from when their symptoms appear, regardless of what day they are on in their original 14-day isolation period. 

ISOLATING means:

  • Do not leave the house for any reason
  • Do not go shopping
  • Do not go to your neighbours
  • Do not visit your family
  • Do not allow anyone who does not live with you, to enter your house
  • Do not visit your GP, pharmacy or hospital

COVID Assessment Hub

The COVID Assessment Hub is open 24/7 and located at the Integrated Care Centre (ICC) - New Radcliffe Street, Oldham OL1 1NL. The Hub has been created for people who have possible symptoms of coronavirus and are unwell, but do not need a 999 response.

The Hub allows us to provide telephone, video and face-to-face consultations and arrange GP home visits when required and appropriate. This lowers the risk to patients and staff as they will be able to be seen by primary care in a safe and dedicated environment.

Saturday 26th September 10am - 2pm is for those at risk aged under 65.
Please contact the practice on 0161 785 7910 to book an appointment as due to having to run our clinics socially distancing you must have an appointment booked and cannot just turn up.
How the clinics will run this year....
  • When you do attend for your flu vaccination we will be letting a maximum of 15 people in at a time, those who are booked in for a particular time slot.
  • If you are early you will be asked to wait until your appointment time, so please arrive for the correct time you have been given.
  • Please do not bring anyone with you who does not have an appointment.
  • You will have your temperature taken before you are allowed in the building so please do not come if you feel unwell.
  • Please wear a mask or face covering to protect yourself and others.
  • You will be asked to have your coat off and arm ready for the clinician so please wear loose clothing.
  • You will be asked some questions by admin staff regarding consent and if you have had a vaccination in previous years.
  • You will then spend as little time as possible with the clinician whilst you have the actual vaccination, so please do not try to ask about other problems, this appointment is purely for a flu vaccination and nothing else.
  • There will be reception staff around to help guide you round the building so we can ensure all patients are socially distanced.

After our most recent inspection we have been rated GOOD by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). Thank you to all patients for their continued support.

With patients' needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations.
