PRACTICE SERVICES

Registration

UK Residents

In order to register, it is helpful if you can bring us your medical card. If you do not have one, you will need to bring details of your previous GP and the address you were living at when you were registered there. We will also need your present address.  (Please note, if you are a member of a college, the college is now your present address.)  You will be required to complete a registration form and a new patient questionnaire – both available from reception.

We would encourage you to book an appointment with our practice nurse for a new patient  health check within four weeks of joining the practice.

Your registration will be with the practice rather than with a particular doctor  and you are free to choose which doctor you would like to see.

It is important that you inform us if you change your name, address or telephone number.

Please be aware, you may be asked for proof of UK residency and entitlement to NHS Services.

Routine Appointments

 

The practice runs a full appointment system for all weekday surgeries. All appointments with a GP or Practice Nurse are booked at ten minute intervals.

Appointments can be made in person or by phoning the surgery.  Unfortunately we are unable, at present, to offer online booking of appointments.

There is no restriction on how far in advance appointments may be booked.

Please let us know, as soon as you can, if you cannot keep an appointment. Remember if you fail to attend an appointment you have prevented another unwell person from using that time.

Urgent Appointments

If your condition requires urgent medical attention, then we will always make an emergency appointment available to you on the same day, although there may be limited choice of doctor and appointment times. Please make the receptionist aware that you require an urgent appointment, remembering that it needs to be a medical emergency not simply a matter of your wish to be seen sooner.

Home Visits

If you are to unwell to come to the surgery and require a home visit, please try to phone before 10.30am. You may be asked brief details of the problem and it may be necessary to talk to a doctor to help the doctor assess the urgency of the call.

Telephone Advice

The doctors and our practice nurse are happy to give telephone advice.  We normally advise patients to ring about 11.30a.m. as this is the most likely time to be able to talk to a doctor.  If, however, you are not able to talk to a doctor or nurse at this time, we will take your number and ask a doctor or nurse to call you back as soon as they are free.  Please make sure we have the correct telephone number to enable us to return your call.

    Test Results

Please note that we can not give out your test results to another person without signed consent from yourself.

Laboratory tests usually take at least 48 hours.  If you have had tests it is your responsibility to phone  the Practice for your results. Please allow at least two to three working days before enquiring for results. Please note, some test results can routinely take much longer.  It would be helpful if you could ring in the afternoon for test results, as reception is less busy in the afternoon and the GP on duty will have had time to look at the results. 

Please be aware that we will not give all test results out over the telephone.  For some confidential tests you will be told when you have the test taken that you will need to come and see the GP for the result whether it is positive or negative.

Smear Results:
You should receive the results of your smear within 14 days of having it taken. Please contact the surgery if you do not receive a letter. The letter will outline when your next smear is due which will routinely be three yearly unless you are over 50 which will then be every five years. Occasionally the laboratory will report that the cells could not be adequately seen, in this case you will be asked to attend to have the smear repeated. The reason that smears are taken is to identify changes in the cells at an early stage. If the result shows that a change has taken place the laboratory will advise on what course of action needs to be taken. This will either be a recall in six months or if the change is significant they may suggest a referral to the Colposcopy Clinic. This does not mean that there is a serious problem but it may have the potential to develop into something more serious if left untreated. If you have any concerns after receiving your result letter please do not hesitate to contact the surgery on 01865 242657

    Referrals

If, at the consultation, your GP feels that you would benefit from a referral to secondary care, you will be offered a choice of hospitals to which you can be referred.  As Oxford has numerous hospitals we anticipate that most patients will choose to go to Oxford.  However, you should be aware that there are others to choose from.  Click here for more details regarding Choice and Booking

Once the referral letter has been checked the secretary then sends the letter electronically to the outpatient department of the hospital of your choice.  This process generates a (UBRN) Unique Booking Reference Number and a password.  The secretary will send these details to you in the post along with a telephone number for you to phone hospital appointments and arrange your own appointment.
