Avoid a local lockdown

Do not make visits to other people's homes or gardens. Restrictions on care home visiting are not being relaxed. Those who are shielding should continue to take extra care.

Latest information and advice

Coronavirus update

Due to the recent Coronavirus outbreak, the Right Start and School Nursing Service in Oldham, needed to adapt our service provision in order to comply with health advice.

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

This 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.

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

  • Stockbrook 
  • Werneth
  • Shaw
  • Hollygrove
  • St James
  • Saddleworth West and Lees
  • Failsworth from Monday 6 April

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause but we look forward to a time when services can resume.

For children 0 to 19 years old

If you are concerned about your child’s general health, safety or wellbeing, please telephone one of the Children’s Centres 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. 

However you can always telephone for advice and support.
