When you are booking an appointment please be prepared for our Patient Care Co-ordinator to ask you the nature of your problem this will enable her to book your appointment appropriately and provide you with the best possible care.

Please note, if you are late for your appointment and the doctor or practitioners clinic is full, you will be asked to book another appointment; you will only be seen at the end of the surgery in exceptional circumstances.

 

Evening and Weekend NHS Appointments

Evening and weekend NHS appointments are now available in the new OxFed Evening and Weekend GP Clinics, located around the Oxford City area, where you can consult with a NHS GP, practice nurse, or other health professional. Appointments are booked by calling our Practice reception who can advise if the service is suitable for your needs. 

 

Oxford Brookes University Medical Centre - During Semester time

There is at least one doctor available in rotation for booked appointments in the Oxford Brookes Medical Centre every morning and afternoon during semester time.

 

Emergency Appointments

If you feel you need an emergency, same day appointment, the patient care co-ordinator will put your name on the duty doctor’s list and the duty doctor will contact you to determine the best course of action with you – please ensure that your phone is to hand.

 

Triage

So that we can make the best use of doctor time you may be booked in to see one of our highly trained practitioners. If your appointment is for Family Planning, Cytology, coughs and colds and other minor illnesses, please ask for a nurse appointment.

 

Telephone Appointments

We also offer shorter telephone consultations at the end of each surgery – please ask reception if you would prefer this. We will give you an approximate time when the doctor will phone you back.
