Oldham Right Start 0-19 Health Services

Coronavirus Covid-19 update

Dear families

Due to the recent Coronavirus (Covid 19) outbreak the Right Start and School Nursing Service in Oldham have needed to adapt some of our services.

The Right Start team will be in contact with your family if you have just given birth.

The contact may be completed over the telephone rather than in your home, although we are trying to maintain face to face contacts, once the midwife has completed their care.

For children 0–19 years old: If you are concerned about your child’s general health, safety or wellbeing, please telephone one of the Children’s Centre below where our Right Start team (Health Visitors) and School Nurses will be able to help you.

There are ten centres that are remaining open for midwifery appointments only, but you can always telephone for advice and support.

  • Stanley Rd Children’s Centre, Chadderton, Tel: 0161 470 4305
  • Failsworth Children’s Centre, Tel: 0161 470 4357
  • Hollinwood Children’s Centre, Tel: 0161 470 4346

The service has closed the following six Children’s Centres:

  • Stockbrook
  • Werneth
  • Shaw
  • Hollygrove
  • St James
  • Saddleworth West and Lees

We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused and look forward to a time when services can resume.

We miss you. Stay safe and well.

Kind Regards

From everyone at the Right Start and School Nursing Service
