Please note that the surgery is not open on English Bank Holidays
We are also open for pre booked appointments only on Wednesdays and Thursdays 18.30 - 20.00, one Monday and one Friday per month 18.30 - 20.00 and one Saturday per month 09.00 - 12.00.
Our patients now have even more access to a doctor at weekends and in the evenings. We are part of a Neighbour Access Hub developed by Principal Medical Limited (PML) on behalf of Oxfordshire practices in 2015. The aims of the service remain the same; patients needing a pre-bookable GP appointment at their own practice, may be offered an appointment at a nearby practice, with a local GP or nurse who has access to their medical records. This provides more appointments for patients during the day, the evenings and at weekends, while relieving GP practices of some of the pressure of providing treatment for minor illnesses.
What does this mean for you?
- No change in the booking process for appointments.
- You may be offered an appointment during normal or extended hours at a Hub location which for our Practice is:
Weekday Evenings Monday to Friday 18.30 - 20.00 operated in either Didcot, Wantage or Faringdon
Saturday Mornings 09.00 - 14.00 operated in Didcot
We can provide up-to-date information on times and locations of available appointments.
Making more time available at the Surgery means that we will be able to put more focus into preventive care, offering longer appointments and concentrated treatment for patients with long-term conditions and complex needs.

If you require medical help you have a choice.
If you wish to speak to an emergency doctor, telephone NHS 111 or if this fails to connect 0845 345 8995.
The 111 service will then decide the best course of action.
A recorded telephone message provides this information when the surgery is closed.
On weekdays between the hours of 18:30 and 08:00, and all day and night at weekends and bank holidays, services are commissioned by the Oxfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group with call handling provided by South Central Ambulance Service.
Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
