  • Medication recommended by hospitals

    Medication following an outpatient appointment or hospital discharge (NHS patients): 

    If you have a hospital letter that recommends new medication OR a change in medication


    You have been seen at a hospital and they are sending your GP a request for a prescription


    You may have to wait up to 14 days for your new medication to be prepared.

    If the hospital requires you to change your medication immediately, then you will be issued with medication by the hospital until we are able to provide the required medication.

  • Primary Care Networks

    The new GP contract in January 2019 agreed to the setting up of Primary Care Networks.

    This means that Practices will work together, covering more than 30,000 patients, and provide services for those patients nearer to home.

    IT DOES NOT MEAN that patients no longer belong to their Practice or are unable to see their Doctor, nor that smaller Practices will be closed.

    IT DOES MEAN that additional advances in Patient care will be available locally.

    Initially there will be Pharmacists attached to the Practice to be sure that all patients are on the right medication. They will not be giving out pills but checking on need and safety.

    Another early change will be that of Social Prescribing, ensuring that all have access to events which will reduce loneliness and depression.

    In the North East region of Oxfordshire there are two Primary Care Networks:

    - Bicester (comprising Montgomery House Surgery, Alchester Medical Group and Bicester Health Centre)
    - Kidlington, known as KIWY (comprising Kidlington area {KEY Medical Practice and Gosford Hill}, Islip, Woodstock and Yarnton)

    There is no wall between the two networks and many services such as District Nursing will continue to work across the whole region.

    More details are available on your Practice website.

  • Extended hours at PML’s Neighbourhood Access Hubs

    Our patients now have even better access to a doctor at the weekends and in the evenings.

    Neighbourhood Access Hubs developed by Principal Medical Limited (PML) on behalf of Oxfordshire practices in 2015, have extended their opening hours so that yet more patients can benefit from national GP Access funding (GPAF). 

    This is great news for the 300,000+ patients registered with the 36 PML GP Federation practices in Oxfordshire.
