Healthy Minds Oldham
We are sure you are aware that there is new and emerging evidence to suggest that older people are largely impacted by the pandemic particularly in relation to their mental and physical health and wellbeing. In Oldham, Healthy Minds are looking now more than ever to engage this client group and offer them treatment with Their service. We know that many older people will have experienced physical deconditioning as well as feeling lonely, isolated and depressed and Healthy Minds would like to offer support to patients.

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:

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.

Walk in Centre
Due to the pandemic, the Walk-in Centre (WiC) based at the Integrated Care Centre (ICC) on New Radcliffe Street remains closed until further notice to protect patients, staff and public.
The ICC now houses a COVID Assessment Centre which is open 8am until 8pm 7 days a week and cares for patients with potential COVID-19 symptoms. It also houses a Digital Hub which provides support to Oldham Care Homes and provides urgent care (within 2 hours) to patients referred to the service by a health and social care professional. Both services are by appointment only following a referral from a healthcare professional or NHS111.
If we are unable to offer you an appointment but you require urgent medical attention, you should contact NHS111 and, depending on your situation you will:
- Find out what local service can help you
- connected to a nurse, emergency dentist, pharmacist or GP
- Get a face-to-face appointment if you need one
- Be given an arrival time if you need to go to A&E – this might mean you spend less time in A&E
- Be told how to get any medicine you need
- Get self-care advice
