Appointments

You will be registered either with Dr Crawshaw, Dr Clark, Dr Savin, Dr Mack or Dr Martin but you are welcome to consult with any doctor. For ongoing or long term problems, you will probably find it easier and more effective to consult with just one doctor for routine appointments.

On the 29th January 2018, the Health Centre introduced GP Access,  a Telephone Triage Appointment System, in which all patients’ requests for a consultation with a doctor will be triaged by a GP.

This means that patients will receive a phone call from the doctor within a few hours of making contact with the Health Centre, and, if mutually agreed, patients will be seen face to face on the same day (or another day, to be mutually agreed).

You can book appointments in two ways:

Telephone 01865 340558 or 01865 340559, and choose option 1.

If you are making a routine appointment, please note that our phone lines are very busy from 8.00-9.30am. If the appointment line offers you the option of leaving your name and number, we will call you back as soon as possible.

Come in to the Health Centre and speak to our reception team.

Our medical receptionists are a highly experienced team, and are subject to a strict confidentiality policy just like doctors and nurses. In order to help you make best use of our services, they may ask you for brief details of why you require an appointment. The receptionist is not responsible for determining the urgency or importance of any problems, but may be able to offer you a range of options if they understand why you are calling.

 A NEW 7 DAY SERVICE AVAILABLE FROM 30THJANUARY 2017

The Abingdon GP Federation which we are a part of has been granted funding until March 2019 to offer evening and weekend clinical appointments

The Abingdon GP Federation consists of the following six surgeries:

  • Abingdon Surgery
  • Berinsfield Health Centre
  • Clifton Hampden Surgery
  • Long Furlong Medical Centre
  • Marcham Road Health Centre
  • Malthouse Surgery

If you are registered at any of these Practices, you can book an appointment to be seen by a GP and, at certain times, other members of the Primary Care team, in our extended hour’s services as follows:

Monday to Friday 6 pm to 8 pm

Saturday and Sunday 9am to 12 noon

Appointments will be delivered at one of the six surgeries on a rota basis and will be 15 minutes long.  They must be booked through your own GP surgery at which time you will be advised of the time and location.  If the appointment is not with your own surgery, you will need to provide verbal authority for the clinician providing your care to access your medical notes.

Appointments in other practices will be with the clinicians associated with that practice and not your own practice

Chaperoning

Chaperoning can be made available in consultations

Cancelling Appointments

Missed appointments cause unnecessary delays for other patients. Please cancel any appointment that is no longer wanted, or you cannot attend, with as much notice as possible by phoning the health centre and selecting option 1 (appointments line) and speak to the receptionist.

Getting to appointments

Car services are operated by volunteers on the following mornings to bring elderly or infirm patients to the Health Centre. These services operate on the following days:

  • From Warborough each weekday
  • From Dorchester every Wednesday
  • From Drayton St. Leonard every Thursday

Anyone wishing to use the car service should reserve a place by booking at their village Post Office. A voluntary car driver will take you from your home to the Health Centre where an appointment will automatically have been made for you. Repeat medicines can be transported to the village post offices by the car services, but please allow 2 working days notice for the prescription to be dispensed.
