Stay at home if you have coronavirus symptoms

Stay at home if you or someone in your household have Coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms which are either:

• a high temperature (above 37.8 degrees)
• a new continuous cough

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you’re staying at home.
You can complete a self certificate for absence so you do not need to contact us for a doctors medical certificate (or ‘sick note’)

Click here to read NHS advice about staying at home.

Use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service if:
• you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home
• your condition gets worse
• your symptoms do not get better after 7 days

Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.

Important information about the Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Due to the impact of the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak in the UK and the recent announcement asking for people to stay at home, all our services are severely affected. We are restricting face-to-face consultations to essential services only and we have had to significantly reduce the provision of routine procedures across our service.

We confirm that all pre planned Appointments are still going ahead. If you would prefer a telephone or video appointment, please speak to us to see if this is possible. For more information please click here, or you can read our COVID patient infromation leaflet here.

We provide patients with access to high quality dermatology service for patients registered with Oldham GP surgeries. We provide consultation, advice and treatment from consultants, specialist GPs and specialist nurses for a wide range of dermatological problems (skin complaints). Our community dermatology service is consultant led and accepts referrals for patients of all ages.

All referrals are triaged with some conditions seen initially by our nurse specialist, who is supported by the consultant.
