Oldham has a new COVID Assessment Hub

The COVID Assessment Hub is open 24/7 and located at the Integrated Care Centre (ICC) - New Radcliffe Street, Oldham OL1 1NL. The Hub has been created for people who have possible symptoms of coronavirus and are unwell, but do not need a 999 response.

The Hub allows us to provide telephone, video and face-to-face consultations and arrange GP home visits when required and appropriate. This lowers the risk to patients and staff as they will be able to be seen by primary care in a safe and dedicated environment.

Prescriptions Charges and Exemptions

Extensive exemption and remission arrangements protect those likely to have difficulty in paying charges (NHS prescription and dental charges, optical and hospital travel costs).

The NHS prescription charge is a flat-rate amount which successive Governments have thought it reasonable to charge for those who can afford to pay for their medicines. Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings for people who need extensive medication.


NHS charges

These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.

  • Prescription (per item): £9.15
  • 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £105.90
  • 3-month PPC: £29.65

If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months, or more than 15 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC.

There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website
