The Treatment Room
Appointments are available to see a nurse on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday for:
If you need a blood test, please book an appointment in the phlebotomy clinics which run every week day.
We provide a comprehensive and individually tailored programme of inoculations, including Yellow Fever for travel to all parts of the world. Remember to leave plenty of time to have the injections before you go. For ordinary package holidays 4-6 weeks is usually sufficient but for more extensive travel at least 3 months may be required.
If you have a medical condition, or are pregnant, it may be advisable to discuss the immunisations or malaria prophylaxis for an exotic holiday with the Practice Nurse, before booking your holiday.
Travel Health Questionnaire

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. You will need to explain which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work. Some vaccines have to be prescribed for an individual before they can be ordered, which can cause a delay.
Some travel vaccines are only available on a private basis. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe the EU has published useful information for travellers on the European website.
Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
Please check the fee payable before booking in or requesting any non-NHS service. Costs can be checked by speaking to the receptionist or the practice manager, although sometimes a GP will need to check exactly what is required before determining the fee. Some medicals require tests which can incur further charges.
If you are a student at one of the colleges we look after, the cost of any medical evidence directly related to your degree is usually already covered by your college: see 'Student Services'
We have a particular interest in students; about one third of our patients are undergraduate or postgraduate students of Oxford University and a number of other patients are recent alumni, students of other Universities, or faculty members.
As college doctors for a number of colleges, we are used to providing medical evidence in support of special exam arrangements, consideration of under-performance, confirmation of disability, applications for extensions, or to suspend student status on medical grounds. In 2015 the University has introduced a new form for such evidence (which our practice has been involved in developing). This new form and other details are at http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/edc/resources/medicalcerts/
Please make an appointment with one of the doctors (not a locum or a trainee) if you need such support. Please make sure you bring details of the relevant academic examinations or assessments. If you have consulted a doctor or other professional (e.g. counsellor) it may help to bring a report from them and/or to ensure they have your permission to talk to us. We can only provide robust evidence of illness if you have consulted us during that illness, or we have received evidence from another professional.
If a relatively junior tutor or lecturer has suggested you should "get a note for your exams", please check with the Senior Tutor (or equivalent) of your College to find out whether it is likely to be helpful. The University is very clear that the vast majority of medical certificates citing factors affecting performance, do not result in any change to the class of degree, especially when an illness impaired revision for a short time, affecting all papers generally.
All certificates for students are not part of our NHS work. Most colleges for whom we are 'college doctors' have negotiated an arrangement so that we do not charge individuals for certificates relating to Oxford degrees. Certificates for other institutions will require payment (e.g. certificates of fitness to study abroad, scholarship applications, confirmation of vaccination etc.).
Email can be a very useful and convenient way to communicate. However please bear in mind the following:
Email must not be regarded as confidential. NHS emails are securely encrypted but once the message leaves the nhs.net domain its security cannot be guaranteed. You may also wish to avoid storing emails about your health which could be ‘hacked’ into at a later stage. Please also do not include any practice email address in any circulars or mass greetings..
We will not pass on your email address to any third parties without your permission, other than to any specialist to whom we have referred you for medical care.
Email lacks many of the cues of normal consultations (such as body language, tone of voice etc.) and so runs a risk of misunderstandings. It may be suitable for simple factual exchanges or to send a scanned report from another practitioner, but email is not suitable for making a diagnosis or discussing emotive problems. Please keep to one topic per email to ensure an issue is not glossed over.
Email may not be read for a couple of days and so is usually not suitable for urgent problems- it is better to telephone, even if you wish to send useful background information by email.
Sometimes email does not reach the recipient because of errors, spam filters or because the recipient is on holiday. Please do not rely on email as the only method of communication, and if you get no response within three working days please try again and/or use another method of communication.
The practice e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Email should not be used for trivial matters which you would not normally regard as significant enough to contact the practice. Email is in addition to all the other work done by the practice: we do not offer fewer appointments just because we receive lots of emails. There can be a temptation to take short cuts by using email to ask for broad advice when it would be much better to have a proper consultation and only need to ask about what is relevant to you. Similarly please do not ask us about medical matters relating to other people or to answer something you could easily find out from a general source (e.g. website), your pharmacist or any other professional you are already dealing with (e.g. college nurse, physiotherapist, dentist etc.).
Your emails (including attachments) and our replies may be ‘copied and pasted’ into your medical records or entered as a brief summary of what was written, at the discretion of the GP. A brief reply such as “understood” or “thanks” may not be copied into your records. Emails may also be stored on a computer in the practice, for a variable length of time, separately from the clinical system.
If you email the practice and/or ask for a response by email it will be assumed that you have read and understood this policy. If you subsequently do not wish to be contacted by email please tell us.
