The Wythenshawe (Brooklands) & Northenden Neighbourhood

Mutual Aid Groups

Local people are coming together to offer support in their local area during the outbreak. Most of these groups are organising on Facebook/Whatsapp.  We will be posting the most up to date map on the coronavirus advice page: https://www.manchestercommunitycentral.org/coronavirus-advice-and-resources, but for the meantime please see the spreadsheet on the following pages. (Please note: we are aware of the work of Mutual Aid UK and their map of groups, but it isn’t fully up to date and is missing a number of the Manchester groups)  


Macc is organising all those wanting to help during the outbreak. The Volunteer Centre is making a call for volunteers and is also directing volunteers to where they are most needed.

To support more of our patients to use digital access to health and community services, Manchester City Council has produced a digital inclusion flyer.  This provides information on support with the basics of getting on-line and on an initiative to source devices from businesses.

Coronavirus Update March 2020

Novel Coronavirus Advice for the NHS in England March 16th 2020

We are now in delay phase of our response to COVID-19.  This entails significant changes to how we identify and manage potential cases of COVID-19.


The public are being advised to stay at home (self-isolate) without any testing for COVID-19, regardless of travel history or contact with confirmed cases, if they have


  • A new continuous cough



  • High temperature (of 37.8 degrees centigrade or higher)


The geographic element of the case definition has now been removed. Travel and contact history are no longer important for diagnosis, which is on the basis of symptoms alone.  If people who have travelled  do not have symptoms, they do not need to stay at home, regardless of their travel history.


Individuals should stay at home (self-isolate) for 7 days from the onset of symptoms following the currrent advice.. If someone has serious symptoms they cannot manage at home they should use NHS111 online (people should only call NHS111 if they cannot get online)


After 7 days of self-isolation, people who feel better and no longer have a high temperature can return to their normal routine.  If they have not had any signs of improvement after 7 days and have not already sought medical advice, they should use NHS111 online (or call NHS111 if no access to online)


Cough may persist for several weeks in some people, despite the coronavirus infection having cleared.  A persistant cough alone does not mean someone must continue to stay at home for more than 7 days.




Testing will not be offered routinely to individuals staying at home


Up to date information can be found on http://www.nhs.uk/coronavirus

Dr Philip Burns has decided to retire from General practice after 15 years working at Northern Moor Medical Practice.  I am sure you would all like to wish him well.  His leaving date is 30th November with his last clinic is on Thursday 28th November.

New SMS service to patients ( posted on Sep 19, 2018 )

Northern Moor Medical Practice is now using Chain SMS to message patients.  We are gradually introducing this service over the next few months.


The sender for these messages will show up as 'AccuRx'


Using this SMS service means we can now be more proactive in our communication with patients.  An example of how we might use the service would be to contact someone to let them know they are due for a routine review or letting you know we tried to call amongst other things.


Please note: You cannot reply to these messages


If you DON'T want to receive text messages you can opt out of the service


If you DO want to receive text messages make sure you always let us know your uptodate mobile telephone number

Our Healthier Manchester ( posted on Aug 21, 2018 )

In the two years since the Manchester Locality Plan started and listening to patient and public feedback, we've been changing things to help it work


  • We've changed how we plan, prioritise and buy health services;
  • Our hospitals have merged into one new organisation that's improving services
  • There's now more care closer to people's homes.
  • Our mental health services have gained strength by joining together into a single organisation


The changes to our structures are only part of what's needed; the key to a healthier Manchester and to reducing health inequalities is people - like you.  We must all change the way we think and act about our own health, the health of those we love and care for, the health of our wider neighbourhood, and of the communities that make up our city.


Please take time to give us your feedback .  This will help us better understand how much you know about health and care services in Manchester and what actions we need to take in partnership with you, communities, neighbourhoods and the health and care system.  You can read the full update on the Our Healthier Manchester website.

By March 2019 everyone in England will benefit from access to general practice appointments in the evenings and weekends.  This is part of a national drive to help improve access to general practice and get the best possible outcomes for patients.  Further information is available at www.england.nhs.uk/gpaccess

New telephone system ( posted on Nov 16, 2017 )
