INFORMATION FOR PATIENTS REGARDING
COVID - 19 / CORONAVIRUS INFECTION
People (children or adults) with flu like symptoms (eg. fever, cough, runny nose, sore throat) should stay home and isolate themselves from others. They can have paracetamol/ibuprofen and continue to drink fluids. If they are worried about their condition (or that of a child or elderly relative) and have NOT visited any of the current risk areas they could be triaged by the duty doctor and may be appropriate for the flu study.
Due to staff illness, we are temporarily closing our South Oxford Branch surgery.
All patients with nurse/health care assistant appointments will be seen at the main site, St. Bartholomew's, on Manzil Way.
All patients requesting a doctor's appointment, please call 01865 244428 to be offered a telephone appointment with a doctor. PLEASE, DO NOT ATTEND THE SURGERY until further notice.
We aim to resume services at the earliest opportunity.
Thank you for your support and understanding.
You can request your repeat prescriptions via email email@example.com

Your Doctor has requested you to have a blood test/Xray
The results of most routine tests will be available within one week. Some blood tests will take longer to reach the surgery.
If you do not hear from the surgery your test results were normal or do not require any specific action.
If you would like to check your results there are two options:
You can register to see your results online via Patient Access (please ask in reception how you can do this). You will be able to see any comments or actions requested by your doctor.
You can telephone the Surgery on 01865 244428 from 12:00 Monday to Friday to speak to a receptionist who will be able to give you the results over the telephone.
If your results are abnormal the surgery may contact you.
- If it is urgent the Duty Doctor or your own doctor may contact you by telephone to arrange the necessary follow-up.
If a specific action is required you may be asked to make an appointment with your doctor either in person or by telephone.
Alternatively the Surgery may send you a letter to ask you to book an appointment or a further blood test if this is needed.
