The Practice will close from 12pm on certain Thursdays. Dates will be advertised on the Practice notice board. This is time for staff training and development.
There is no surgery on a Saturday morning. Please use the Out of Hours number, which is for emergencies only. The number is Freephone 111.
Contacting the Practice:
The practice has changed the telephone systems to a managed approach. The telephone system now has call queuing and calling options.
Please be aware that all telephone calls are recorded for training and monitoring purposes.
On calling 0115 963 3511, telephone callers will be greeted with a welcome message and information on what to do in the case of a medical emergency. The telephone caller will then be offered 3 options (each option will provide the telephone caller with information of the queue positioning up to 10 callers):
1. Appointment Requesting and General Enquiries (available between 8am to 6.30pm)
2. Results Enquiries (available between 3.30pm – 5.30Pm)
3. Home visit requesting (available between 8am to 6.30pm and has a dedicated member of the administration team to answer this as a priority).
This change has been made following patient feedback and discussion with the Patient Participation Group to improve patient access by telephone.
Due to the increasing numbers of patients requiring GP appointments, the practice is now providing GP assessments over the telephone. If you have an issue that you feel, can no longer wait another day, please call the practice as soon as you can after 8am. The receptionist will ask for some information on the issue you are experiencing and will arrange for the GP to telephone you to see how we can best deal with your request. Patients who are seriously unwell and call after 10:30 will be assessed by the On call Doctor.
Appointments are available for booking 14 days in advance and are released on a daily basis at 8am.
Oakenhall Medical Practice now offers routine advance appointment booking on a Tuesday and Wednesday morning between 7.30 am and 8.00 am with a GP, Practice Nurse, Healthcare Assistant and Phlebotomist (appointment for a blood test).
There are also:
Extra evening and weekend appointments available in local area
You can now book routine GP and Nurse appointments in the evening, at weekends and over bank holidays in your local area.
Pre-bookable appointments are available Monday-Friday, 6.30pm-8pm, plus weekends and bank holidays and you can be seen by a GP, Nurse or Healthcare Assistant.
To book your appointment, contact the surgery during normal opening hours. Please be aware that the appointment may take place at another GP Practice in the area.
If you need urgent medical advice when the surgery is closed, you should continue to call NHS 111.
