Appointments system ( from Monday the 12th of October)

*GP Appointments: To improve availability for GP appointments the surgery is running a "book on the day" system where patients can be booked with any of the available doctors on the day. Most of the GP appointments are now being carried out over the phone, video or on line consultations. After the doctor's assessment and when clinically appropriate the patient will be seen in person.

*Other clinicians: Physician Associates, Paramedic, Advanced Practitioners, Nurses, Pharmacists, Midwifes, Social Prescriber and Health Care Assistants' appointments can be booked in advance. Some of them will continue to be over the phone consultations in first instance.

Nurses and Healthcare Assistans' treatment will be carried out in person following the Covid-19 safety procedures already in place.

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.

OCCG- Botley Medical Centre
