When We Are Closed
If you need medical advice when the surgery is closed, that is between 18:30 and 08:00 on weekdays, and throughout weekends and bank holidays, ring 111.
They will assess you, provide advice, and if necessary, connect you directly to the local out-of-hours emergency service. This service is run by the Oxfordshire Urgent Care Service.
Requests for an out-of-hours consultation should be made only if you think that you cannot wait until we are next open. The service can only deal with your immediate problems – it cannot issue sick notes, order tests or change your regular treatments, and so is not an alternative to seeing your own doctor.
If you are able then you may be asked to attend a Primary Care Centre. You may be offered telephone advice from the duty doctor or a face-to-face consultation if it is necessary.
Between 08.00 to 08.30 and 18.00 to 18.30 on weekdays, you can seek health advice by calling 111 or if you would like to speak with our duty doctor please call the surgery.
Once a month usually on a Thursday, the Practice is closed between 12:30 – 14:30 for a Full Practice Meeting. If you need to talk to us urgently during this time please call our usual number to obtain a mobile number that will allow you to contact the duty doctor. We do apologise for the inconvenience caused but these meetings are really important for the practice team as they allow us to discuss significant events, safeguarding concerns and other important issues.
In a genuine emergency you should call 999
Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency
