New: Oxford Out-of-hours GP record sharing initiative
Observatory Practice is part of an organisation called OxFed (Oxford Federation for General Practice and Primary Care). All 22 Oxford city GP practices have joined OxFed.
OxFed was set up in 2015 by local GPs to help GP practices and primary care teams to work together to improve the health and care of people of all ages and backgrounds who live, study or work in Oxford.
The federation aims to:
- provide safe, effective and person-centred healthcare for the community
- support collaborative working between it’s member practices and other organisations
- help practices share administration, management and other resources to improve the sustainability of general practice and the local NHS
- enhance the stability of it’s member practices, and;
- improve the training and professional development of the teams working in our member practices.
OxFed has launched a new Out-of-Hours GP record sharing initiative. This will help patients receive safer, better coordinated care when their usual GP surgery is closed. Observatory Practice is pleased to be part of this initiative.
