We put patients at the heart of everything we do. From your first contact with us to your last and beyond, we firmly believe in empowering patients with self-care to improve quality of life.
If you are an NHS patient looking for advice about your condition or your treatment is via your work/employer through occupational services, check out the patient resources section below.
Get well, Keep well
Of course we’re not just here for when you are unwell. Our team of healthcare professionals and back-up staff offer a number of clinics and services to promote good health and wellbeing whatever your medical condition.
We hope you enjoy having a look around the site and familiarising yourself with some of the online features such as ordering a repeat prescription.
The practice is on a single floor and has access for wheelchairs and disabled toilets.
If you are visually impaired or hard of hearing please let one of the receptionists know and they will be able to assist you.
We are a Park Run Practice!
Come join us at 9am at Horspath Sports Ground, then every Saturday thereafter (as long as landowner permissions remain.)
No previous experience necessary. Fully marshalled course including a tailwalker every week - he/she is a mandatory fixture at all parkrun events and ensures that no participant comes last.
Run (or walk), not race. Parking, toilets, defib & lovely volunteers.
All ages and abilities welcome, kids and up to one dog per walker/runner.
Please follow the link to register (only ever required once to access all parkrun events) and bring a printed barcode.
Hope to see some of you at some point but no pressure or obligation to attend.
There are three ways to get in touch with your GP practice
It’s no secret that our surgeries have been busier than ever. And as we head into winter, you may require our services more often. That’s why we’re letting you know that there are several ways to contact your GP practice team, whether it’s for you or someone you care for.
There are three ways you can get in touch with us. You can:
• Use an online form on our website - econsult . It’s convenient and secure and can save time.
• Call us during surgery hours Monday to Friday, 08:30 - 18:00 on 01865 777024. Please be mindful that our phone lines can get busy, particularly in the mornings.
• Come into the surgery
Pick the option that suits you best. No matter how you choose to get in touch with us, whether it’s using an online form, calling or visiting, you’ll get the help that’s right for you.
• Book a face-to-face appointment for you
• Arrange a phone or video consultation
• Send you a text message, for example, inviting you for a blood test
• Arrange a home visit, or
• Refer you to another service.
However we respond, you can rest assured that we’re always looking after your needs.
Help us, help you
When you contact us our Reception team will ask you for some further details. They have been asked to do this by the doctors so that we can make sure that you are given the most appropriate care; this may not be a doctor. It is part of their role and it is very useful if you can give as much information as possible.
The doctors, nurses and staff in this practice have the right to do their work in an environment free from violent, threatening or abusive behaviour and everything will be done to protect that right.
At no time will any such behaviour be tolerated in this practice. If you do not respect the rights of our staff we may choose to inform the police and make arrangements for you to be removed from our medical list.
Please also tell us if:
• You would prefer us to talk with you by phone, face-to-face or by video call
• You need to speak to a particular person because they have treated you before
• There are certain times of day when you can’t talk, for example you are at work, at school or college
• You need English to be interpreted, you need help from another person at your appointment, or if you have other communications needs.
We will do our best to meet your needs in the way you would like, but please bear in mind that if you are unwell, our priority will be to ensure you receive care quickly.
