Important Update to Old Trafford Medical Practice:

On Thursday 12th July we will be changing our clinical system from TPP SystmOne to Emis. From Thursday 5th July we will switch off our access to online services such as online appointment booking and online requests for prescriptions. 

No prescriptions will be issued on Thursday 12th July. Please ensure you allow for this when ordering your medications.

All prescriptions will be paper prescriptions from the period Thursday 5th July until at least our go live day of Thursday 12th July.

On Thursday 12th July we will close at 1pm and re-open on Friday 13th July at 8am. 

On the morning of Thursday 12th July we will only be offering same day appointments.

Our team will have received full training for this new system, however your patience would be gratefully appreciated during this transitional period.

Are You a Carer?

If you are please let us know - we may be able to help you

There is a wealth of information on NHS Choices about carers and caring. Below are some links into the site that we hope you will find useful.

  • Carers Assessment Getting assessed allows you to get help and support for yourself and the person you care for from your local authority social services department.
  • Caring for a parent

  • Telling people

    Caring responsibilities can make it difficult to maintain friendships or develop new ones. Telling your friends you're a carer is important so they understand and can support you.

  • Taking a break

    Caring for someone can be a full-time job, but it's essential that you take time out for yourself too. Read our guide to accessing breaks and respite.

  • Housing and carers

    Do you know your tenancy rights as a carer? Are you aware of all your care at home options? Do you need tips on moving someone around the home?
