NOTICE: NHS Oldham Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG)
NHS Oldham Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) closed at the end of June 2022 and its functions have been taken over by NHS Greater Manchester Integrated Care (‘NHS GM’).
This new organisation is the statutory body in charge of NHS money and is responsible for making sure services are in place to put plans into action. You can find out more here: https://gmintegratedcare.org.uk.
If you need help accessing local NHS services or wish to make a complaint, you can contact NHS GM Customer Services by emailing email@example.com or calling 07966 746117. Or you can write to: Customer Services, NHS Greater Manchester Integrated Care, 4th Floor, Piccadilly Place, Manchester M1 3BN.
Please note, NHS GM is unable to investigate complaints about general practice. These should be directed either to ourselves directly or to NHS England.
If you’re making, or thinking about making, a complaint, someone from the independent NHS Complaints Advocacy Service can help you. Cloverleaf Advocacy provides this service in Oldham. The service is accessible to all Oldham residents and is completely free.
Cloverleaf can help you to raise a formal complaint about an NHS funded service. An advocate will also be able to attend meetings with you and review any information you’re given during the complaints process. You can seek advice from an NHS complaints advocate at any stage of the process.
Choose well - Right Treatment, Right Place, Right Time
The Jalal Practice is supporting a national campaign to ensure people know where to go for medical help when they need it.
Too many people are turning up at A&E because they simply do not know where else to go for treatment or what other services are available.
The Choose Well campaign, which is being promoted at GP Practices and community venues across the area, focuses on getting people the right treatment in the right place at the right time.
It aims to help people to understand the different options available and to improve their experience of local health services.
The table below shows you the health services you can access for everything from a grazed knee and diarrhoea to a sprained ankle and chest pain.
You can also download a free Choose Well app for information about the nearest GP, Minor Injuries Unit, Pharmacy and A&E department wherever you are.
