We have a team of seven nurses who are highly trained in a wide range of treatments and we run regular clinics as well as seasonal clinics, e.g. for influenza vaccination. To see who our nurses are please click here.
Please ring reception on 01865 515552 to make an appointment to see a nurse. You will be asked to give a reason for the appointment so that we are able to direct you to a nurse with specialist skills or to a particular clinic. For more information about appointments at our practice please click here.
Some treatments, for example foreign travel vaccinations, may not be supported by the NHS and may incur a fee. Please click on the Travel Vaccinations tab above for more information about this service.

In addition we run the following on a regular basis:
Well Baby Clinic
This is for children's vaccinations and eight week developmental assessments. The clinic is held every Tuesday between 1pm and 3pm.
Please note that from 1pm - 2pm is the nurse only clinic - this is an appointment only clinic. You will need to contact reception to make this appointment. If you need to see a doctor or are coming for 1st immunisations, you will need to attend from 2pm onward - this is a drop in service.
We hold monthly minor surgery clinics, and a six weekly cryotherapy clinic. Appointments for these clinics should only be made after discussion with the doctor.
Other services are provided from our surgery or in the Summertown area. These include:
