Oldham Right Start 0-19 Health Services

Coronavirus Covid-19 update

Dear families

Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, the Health Visiting (Right Start) and School Nursing Service in Oldham have adapted some of our services in order to comply with Government Guidance.

A number of essential services will continue to be face to face either in your home or a clinic – this is in line with NHS England Guidance.

This includes Health Visitor New Baby contact, 6-8 Week contact, Vaccine & Immunisation and contact with Children and families who may need extra support.

Staff will wear Personal Protective Equipment during any face to face contact; you will be invited to wear a mask.

Many other Right Start services are continuing by phone and video call.

For children and young people (0 to 19) If you would like any support with your child’s general health & wellbeing, early education and special educational needs, please telephone one of the Children’s Centres below, where your Health Visiting (Right Start) team (including Health Visitors & Special Educational Needs Practitioners and School Nurses) will be able to help you.
