Patient Care during Coronavirus 

As part of the NHS’s efforts to protect you and healthcare workers at this difficult time, Oxfordshire GP practices have changed the way they work in your area.

Kennington Health Centre premises are now a COVID-19 clinic, supporting patients with suspected or confirmed Coronavirus ONLY. Please be assured we are taking every precaution to protect the wider public and staff from the risk of infection. PLEASE DO NOT VISIT THE CLINIC IN PERSON unless you are advised to do so by NHS 111 or a clinician, where appropriate measures will be taken to protect both you and the staff.

If you need advice for any COVID symptoms, please continue to contact 111 online or on the telephone if you don’t have internet access. For any other health condition or symptom you should contact your practice as usual, unless it is outside of normal working hours, then please contact 111, which will direct you to the appropriate out of hours services. If you need to be seen face-to-face by a doctor or nurse, safe arrangements for this appointment will be made at another location.

The most important thing you can do to stay safe, protect your family and protect your NHS doctors and nurses is to follow Public Health advice to stay at home and keep your distance from other people.

Thank you for your understanding and continued support.

Seasonal Flu Vaccinations

Botley Medical Centre and Kennington Health Centre

Seasonal Flu Vaccinations

It is really important that we protect ourselves and those around us by having a flu vaccination before the winter sets in.

The following groups of people are entitled to a free Flu vaccination at their GP surgery:

    • Those aged 65 and over.
    • People aged between 18 and 64 in a clinical at risk group, such as those with Diabetes or Heart Disease.
    • Pregnant Women
    • Carers
    • Health Care Workers
    • Children Aged 2 and 3



This year there is a different vaccine for the over 65s. Most children will receive an application of the vaccine by a nasal spray. To avoid confusion we are offering different flu clinics for the different groups.

If we have any vaccines over at the end of the programme will offer these to patients who do not fall within the at risk groups. If you would like a vaccination but are not entitled to a free one of the NHS you can go to any pharmacist advertising the service and pay a small fee for this.

Please contact the surgery to make an appointment for your flu jab. We will be contacting you if you have not attended for your appointment by the end of November.

Please note the new telephone number for appointments is 01865 730911

For administrative matters call 01865 248719
