Pausing Elective Care in Greater Manchester (4/1/22)
Hospitals in Greater Manchester have made the difficult decision to pause some non-urgent surgery and appointments due to the rising impact of COVID-19.
Patients who will be affected by this will be contacted by the hospital as soon as possible.
If you are not contacted by the hospital, please assume your treatment is continuing as planned. There is no need to contact the hospital or your GP practice for this information.
We understand how disappointing this will be for patients who have appointments or procedures affected, especially those who have already waited for some time, and we know people will be worried.
This is a temporary measure, and the aim is to impact the fewest number of patients. The situation will be reviewed on a regular basis so that procedures can resume as soon as possible.
Urgent treatments and cancer operations will continue to be prioritised and hospitals will continue to work together across Greater Manchester to care for patients so that everyone who needs urgent care and treatment, gets it.
Anyone waiting for treatment can find advice and support on the Greater Manchester While You Wait website (whileyouwait.org.uk). Here you will find information and advice on how to manage your physical and mental wellbeing while you wait.
This is a difficult decision and one that has not been taken lightly, but we’ve done it so we can keep people safe, can maintain the very best infection control measures, can make sure we deploy staff to where they’re needed most and can keep looking after people who need urgent and emergency care, including cancer treatment.
We would urge anyone with health concerns to continue to come forward for help and treatment in the usual way, using their local emergency department only for serious illnesses or injuries. A reminder that NHS 111 can help if you have an urgent medical problem and aren’t sure what to do. Call 111 or visit 111.nhs.uk.

- What to do if you have worrying symptoms during the Covid-19 Pandemic
Many people are understandably concerned about visiting their GP during the current Covid pandemic. Although, it is good that most people are following the Government guidelines around staying at home and social distancing, it is important that this does not stop people getting medical advice when necessary.
There is increasing concern that some people may be ignoring potentially worrying symptoms that could be a sign of cancer or other significant health problems for fear of going to their GP practice. These might include:
- Unexplained Pain
- Unexplained bleeding eg – blood in poo, coughing up blood, blood in pee
- Unexplained weight loss
- Unexplained lump(s)
Diagnosing cancer early means that it is easier to treat and treatment is more likely to be successful.
All GP practices are still open, although many appointments are being carried out by telephone or video, without people having to go into the practice. Patients are reminded if they have any of the above symptoms, or any other symptoms that they are worried about, it is important to contact you GP practice and arrange a telephone or video consultation, in the first instance. This will allow your GP to assess your symptoms and discuss with you whether you need further investigations.
If you do need to have investigations or treatment urgently, all hospitals have developed new ways of working, aimed at minimizing any risk of contact with Covid-19.
IF YOU, OR SOMEONE CLOSE TO YOU HAS SYMPTOMS THEY ARE CONCERNED ABOUT, CONTACT YOUR GP PRACTICE FOR ADVICE.
We are pleased to notify our patients that in our recent CQC inspections for both practices, we received the rating of overall 'Good' for each individual practice. If you would like to read more about the inspection and see the reports, please follow the links:
