Oldham

In Oldham we provide a range of communitymental health and specialist services that aim to keep you healthy from the day you are born through to the end of your life. 

We work in partnership with a range of other organisations to deliver many of our services to make sure your care is joined up. This supports our commitment to providing integrated services that ensure you can benefit from ‘whole person care’.

In Oldham, our community services teams work side-by-side with GPs in four locality areas of the borough: Glodwick and East Oldham; ICC Cluster and Chadderton; Failsworth and Werneth; Saddleworth and Royton, Shaw and Crompton.

Community services

In addition to a wide range of nursing and therapy services, in Oldham we also provide intermediate care, including IV therapy, at our Butler Green facility to help prevent admission to, or support discharge from, hospital.

In addition, there are dedicated services for older people, aged 65 or over, living in the borough.

In Oldham there is also a RAID (Rapid Assessment Liaison and Discharge) service that works closely with colleagues at the local hospital to provide more support to adult patients presenting at A&E with mental health problems, those with alcohol misuse issues and people with dementia.
