    Public Notice Regarding Hospital Appointments

    Pausing Elective Care in Greater Manchester (4/1/22) Hospitals in Greater Manchester have made the difficult decision to pause some non-urgent surgery and appointments due to the rising impact of COVID-19. Patients who will be affected by this will be contacted by the hospital as soon as possible. If you are not contacted by the hospital, please assume your treatment is continuing as planned. There is no need to contact the hospital or your GP practice for this information. We understand how disappointing this will be for patients who have appointments or procedures affected, especially those who have already waited for some time, and we know people will be worried. This is a temporary measure, and the aim is to impact the fewest number of patients. The situation will be reviewed on a regular basis so that procedures can resume as soon as possible. Urgent treatments and cancer operations will continue to be prioritised and hospitals will continue to work together across Greater Manchester to care for patients so that everyone who needs urgent care and treatment, gets it. Anyone waiting for treatment can find advice and support on the Greater Manchester While You Wait website (whileyouwait.org.uk). Here you will find information and advice on how to manage your physical and mental wellbeing while you wait. This is a difficult decision and one that has not been taken lightly, but we’ve done it so we can keep people safe, can maintain the very best infection control measures, can make sure we deploy staff to where they’re needed most and can keep looking after people who need urgent and emergency care, including cancer treatment. We would urge anyone with health concerns to continue to come forward for help and treatment in the usual way, using their local emergency department only for serious illnesses or injuries. A reminder that NHS 111 can help if you have an urgent medical problem and aren’t sure what to do. Call 111 or visit 111.nhs.uk.

    I M P O R T A N T N O T I C E Afternoon surgery on Wednesday 22nd December On the afternoon of Wednesday 22 December, all of Oldham’s GP practices will be operating differently in support of the accelerated Covid-19 booster programme. Practices are being supported by GTD Healthcare (GoToDoc) at this time. This means practice phone lines will be diverting to GTD Healthcare as they do for the Out of Hours Service. GTD staff are able to help you with most urgent medical problems during this time, to speak to them you should phone the normal practice number. This will help free up the practice to spend the afternoon focusing on vaccinating as many our patients as possible. The practice remains open during this time, if you need usfor matters that can’t be dealt with by GTD and can’t wait, please come in as usual and we will be pleased to help. Thank you for your understanding
