The deadlines apply to previously un-assessed periods of care from April 1, 2004 to March 31, 2012. Individuals should contact NHS Oldham's personalised care team on 0161 622 6525 for further information, visit www.nhs.uk or click here for further details.
We are the local leader of the NHS in Oldham and are responsible for identifying what services patients need now and in the future. We are working closely with NHS Oldham Clinical Commissioning Group in preparation for it taking over responsibility for health services in April 2013, when PCTs across the country close down.
NHS Oldham Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is made up of every family doctor in Oldham and is led by a Governing Body that also includes family doctors and other health professionals.
From April 2013 the CCG will be the organisation responsible for deciding how around £300m of taxpayers’ money is spent on Oldham people.
