Welcome to Bicester Health Centre
Supporting local healthcare this Winter
This surgery will open for urgent care only between 6.30pm and 8.30pm on Wed 21 Jan, Thurs 22 Jan, Wed 28 Jan and Thurs 29 Jan 2015. Please call 01869 249333 and select Option 1 if you need to speak to or see a doctor or nurse for urgent medical care.
The NHS is seeing unprecedented levels of demand in Primary Care and A&E this winter.
In the week ending 11/1/2015, A&E at the John Radcliffe and Horton Hospitals saw 2,277 patients. Of those patients, 421 waited more than 4 hours to be seen. In the same week your surgery saw 241 patients for urgent "on the day" appointments. This was in addition to the usual routine appointments offered. That's the equivalent of 40 hours or 8 hours a day every Monday to Friday dedicated just to patients needing a same day urgent appointment.
Oxfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group have asked us to help where we can by providing additional urgent care appointments outside of the usual surgery hours.
We would ask you to think carefully before calling or attending any healthcare centre; however if you feel your problem is urgent, please consider calling your surgery first.
With patients' needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations.
