ARE YOU A MILITARY VETERAN? IF SO ARE HAPPY TO HAVE THIS RECORDED IN YOUR MEDICAL RECORDS?
A VETERAN IS SOMEONE WHO HAS SERVED IN THE ARMED FORCES FOR AT LEAST 1 DAY.
IT IS IMPORTANT FOR YOUR CONTINUING HEALTHCARE THAT YOU INFORM YOUR GP IF YOU HAVE SERVED. THIS WILL HELP THEM BETTER UNDERSTAND ANY SERVICE RELATED HEALTH CONDITIONS THAT YOU MAY HAVE AND ENSURE THAT YOU ARE REFERRED, WHERE APPROPRIATE, TO DEDICATED SERVICES FOR EX-FORCES.
PLEASE LET OUR RECEPTION KNOW IF YOU ARE HAPPY TO HAVE THIS RECORDED.
WE ARE HAVING A LARGE NUMBER OF PATIENTS BRINGING IN URINE SAMPLES TO BE CHECKED. UNLESS THE NURSE OR DOCTOR HAS ASKED FOR ONE SPECIFICALLY THEN PLEASE CONTACT RECEPTION TO ENSURE THAT THERE IS A NURSE AVAILABLE TO CHECK IT BEFORE COMING DOWN TO SURGERY.
We apologise if you have had to wait longer than usual for appointments recently. One of the problems is a high number of people not attending, which is very frustrating all round.
IF YOU NO LONGER NEED YOUR APPOINTMENT PLEASE CANCEL! IT COSTS THE NHS THOUSANDS OF POUNDS EVERY WEEK IN WASTED APPOINTMENTS.
Oak Gables and the PPG are actively supporting 'The Red Box Project', tackling period poverty for young girls

Seven Day Access Service
Patients who are registered with an Oldham GP can now make an appointment to see a GP in the evenings and at weekends. This may not be your own GP but a copy of the consultation will be sent to your Practice. At your appointment the GP will be able to see some of your medical records so that they are able to advise you accurately.
If you would like to make an appointment with this service please telephone:
0161 934 2827
The staff will be able to advise you on the nearest available appointment.
Please remember that for treatment of minor ailments your local pharmacist will be able to advise you on the appropriate treatment. Your local Pharmacy will also be able to advise on medication queries and can sometimes help with emergency repeat prescriptions.
Please remember that A&E is for Accidents and Emergency attendance only. Please try to use one of the above health care professional contacts if your illness is not an emergency.
IF YOU WOULD LIKE ANY ADVICE ON THE SERVICES THAT ARE AVAILABLE WHEN THE PRACTICE IS CLOSED PLEASE ASK AT RECEPTION.
