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.
