Building Work at Botley Medical Centre

Building work will commence on Monday the 8th July at Botley Medical Centre. We apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause advance. We are working towards making the Practice lovely and new for our patients!


After trialling and auditing our appointment system, we have found that the number of appointments used during the drop in clinic are actually less than the ones that are offered during a normal clinic. Therefore the Practice have decided to stop this service.

We will be now offering our normal clinics on a Friday which can either be pre booked in advance or booked on the day, to allow more patients to be seen by the Doctors.

Thank you for your understanding.


  This week Dr Maddy Podichetty has left Botley Medical Centre.

We all wish her the best of luck with her new commitments!

If you were one of her patients you will have been now transferred to a different doctor's list. It can take a bit of time to get used to a new doctor but if you feel you would like to change , please, do not hesitate to let us know in writing and we will do our best to accommodate you with a different doctor.

Take the bypass toward Botley (north) it is easier to take the slip road off at Harcout Hill (about two miles along the bypass from Kennington) and go down toward Botley i.e. right off the slip road. When you reach the Botley shopping centre go to the traffic lights at the Botley Road making sure you stay in the inside lane.  Take the turning left and almost immediately get over to the middle of the road for the right turn into Elms Road where the Practice is located, at the top of the road.
