SEVEN DAY ACCESS

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

Your telephone numbers

Please could you let us know your phone/mobile number.  It is very important that we have this information in order for us to contact you if necessary.  Some of  the information we have is out of date.  We now have the facility to send SMS messages to you to remind you about appointments, and other important practice information.

Cancelling your Appointment
If you are unable to attend an appointment with one of the doctors or nurses, please telephone or use the link at the bottom of this page to cancel your appointment.

We are constantly monitoring non attenders, and there has been an increase in the number of patients failing to attend.  If you fail to attend without informing us we will write to you.  If you repeatedly fail to attend for appointments you may be removed from the practice list and will have to find an alternative GP. 

Repeat Prescriptions

PLEASE NOTE - PRESCRIPTION REQUESTS ARE NO LONGER BE ACCEPTED BY TELEPHONE.

You can now order your repeat prescriptions on line.  Simply go to the prescriptions page and enter your information.  From August 2015, please remember to allow 48 hours for your prescription to be be prepared.  Please note, that prescriptions ordered after 5.30pm on Fridays and over the weekend, will not be processed until Monday and will therefore be ready for collection on Wednesday.   If you wish to collect your prescription from a chemist please ask the chemist to pick your prescription up from the surgery for you. The Practice does not inform the chemist, this must be done by the patient.

Nominating a Chemist

The practice now have an electronic prescription service.  You can nominate a pharmacy to receive your prescriptions electronically.  You can then collect your medications direct from the pharmacy without the need for coming to the surgery.

If you have been discharged recently and need medication please bring/send your discharge letter to the surgery so we can update your records accordingly. Thank You


 

APPOINTMENTS - DON'T MISS IT …. CANCEL IT!!


Due to the continuing need to protect patients and staff, we will still be asking everyone to wear a face masks after the national restrictions lift. If you have an exemption then please carry this with you or you will be asked to wear a face covering. The partners feel that this is the safest option for all concerned and is in line with the government recommendations that face coverings should continue to be worn in healthcare settings.


We have a MIND counsellor in Practice every Monday.     She is able to offer help and advice to patients and onward referrals if necessary.  Initial appointments are available on  Monday mornings and further appointments will be made for follow up by the counsellor.
