We are delighted to announce that the practice was recently voted the number 1 practice in Oxford in the recent National NHS Survey. We would like to give a BIG THANKS to all the patients who voted for us…
It’s that time of the year again, and for those that are due one, we are organizing 2 drop in clinics .
Pop in anytime between 8.30-11.20am on the following dates:
Saturday 14th Sept
Saturday 5th Oct
Pre-bookable appointments are also available on different dates and times- see reception for further information. Or you can ask for it when you come in to see a clinician for something else. Flu vaccinations are for eligible patients only (if you are unsure whether you are eligible, please check with reception).
Following the results of the annual survey organized by the PPG, the practice has decided to change the way if offers extended hour consultations for patients. As opposed to doing these ALL on Saturday mornings, as we currently do, we will now offer new additional telephone consultation slots EVERY weekday between 6.30pm and 7pm as well as having 2 GPs doing appointments every other Saturday morning at the surgery.
The hope is that this is fairer for all, as many have said they cannot wait or make Saturday mornings but would like to speak to a GP later in the day during the week. This change will start from the beginning of January

“All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (eg average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.
The average pay for GPs working for six months or more for Observatory Medical Practice, in the last financial year, was £65862 before Tax and National Insurance. This is for 8 part time GPs.”
