Social Prescribing at RMC ( posted on Jan 9, 2020 )

What is Social Prescribing?

We know that taking care of your health involves more than just medicine. With Oldham Social Prescribing you can get specialist support for more than medical issues. Your local connector will contact you and spend time with you exploring what activities and/or local support could improve your health and wellbeing. You can consider the benefits of participating in them, and we will assist and support you to plan your next steps

By working closely together with GPs, nurses and other health care professionals patients are now being referred to a range of local, non-clinical services – services that could be used to treat or help with:

  • Loss of confidence/purpose
  • Social isolation
  • Loneliness
  • Life changing events such as bereavement, new born, retirement
  • Getting out and about
  • Emotional wellbeing
  • Healthy lifestyle choices
  • Long term health conditions
  • Accessing work, training and volunteering
  • Poor health linked to housing or housing conditions


What are the benefits?

• Improve your mental and physical health

• Meet new people

• Learn a new skill or participate in a new activity

• Increase self confidence and self esteem

• Better quality of life

• Get involved in your community


How do I access the service?

It’s simple, you can talk to your GP, health care professional or surgery staff, or fill in a self-referral form either at your surgery or online at www.oldhamcares.com/socialprescription and one of our connectors will contact you. Alternatively you can contact one of our connectors directly on 0161 339 2345 or email oldccg.socialprescribing@nhs.net and we’ll do the rest.


 


GP Patient Survey ( posted on Dec 24, 2019 )

Some patients registered at this GP practice will soon be invited to take part in a national survey about their experiences of local NHS services.

It covers issues that concern patients, such as access to care and satisfaction with treatment. If you receive a questionnaire, please help NHS England by filling it in as soon as possible.

It is really important that we hear your views, even if you have received a questionnaire like this before. Your response will help us to improve GP practices and other local NHS services so they better meet your needs.

Need a Doctors Appointment? ( posted on Dec 20, 2019 )

Need a doctor’s appointment? It’s now easier to see a GP near where you live.

Recent changes mean that Greater Manchester can offer more out-of-hours GP appointments. So wherever you live in the region, you’ll be able to get an evening or weekend appointment with a doctor or health professional in your local area.
