The Practice covers most of the area which falls within The Oxford Ring Road.
In order to register, we need you to complete three forms: a registration form "GMS1" (which is purple and white), a medical questionnaire, and a consent form stating whether you would be happy to be contacted by electronic means and whether you would like your personal information to be shared with other organisations who work within or for the NHS. These three forms are available from the links below.
Once your registration has been processed you can make an appointment to see whichever GP you choose within the Practice.
We also look after students from Blackfriars, Brasenose College, Merton College, Oriel College, St Anne's College, St Benet's Hall, St Cross College, St Peter's College and Wycliffe Hall. Students from these colleges can use a secure on-line registration system to register, which uses campus ID to confirm residence and NHS entitlement. Please go to the link here.

The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them. You can download the guide below.
A Patient Guide to GP Services
Please notify us immediately of any change of address. Please either come in, telephone, send a letter or email the Practice (email@example.com). This is vital for us to be able to communicate with you.
If you change your mobile phone number, land-line number or email address it is very helpful for us if you tell us. It is also helpful if you can make it clear to us whether you are happy for us to leave answer-phone messages and/or to contact you by text or email. We want to respect your confidentiality but we also want to be able to communicate with you in the way that suits you best.
You can also update your preferences about being contacted by filling in the form below, which also asks about whether you would like to have your records shared with other services (such as emergency services who may need to treat you, or with "care.data" which collects information for research and planning purposes).
Consent Form for Electronic Communications and Data Sharing
If you are ill while visiting Oxford and the problem cannot wait until your return home, we would be pleased to see you as a temporary patient. This will allow you to receive services from us and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. The maximum stay allowed qualifying as a temporary patient is three months- after that you would have to re-register as a permanent patient.
You must be entitled to NHS care to become a temporary patient. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the area where you normally live.
It is difficult to make routine referrals for temporary patients and we would normally expect the usual GP to do this.
We need to complete a form (see link below) with various details including your usual GP and NHS number to see you as a temporary patient.
NHS rules state that full time University students are deemed to be normally resident at their University address- so they should register with a GP who is able to look after them while they are at University. They are able to see a GP as a temporary patient in the vacation. Oxford University students cannot be ‘temporary’ patients while they are in Oxford.
Since 1/1/15 the government has introduced a system for Out of Area Patients. Many people (including those working in the NHS) do not fully understand the system and there are controversies about how well it will work.
Patients can apply to register with a GP in a different area to where they live- for example near their place of work or a second home. These patients can be accepted as Out of Area Patients, subject to a GP agreeing that it is medically appropriate.
If you live outside our practice area and would like to register with us as an Out of Area Patient, we would be pleased to consider your application. Please bear in mind that we may decline an application if we believe that the quality of care you would receive would be significantly compromised (for example if you might be likely to need home visits, which are not available to Out of Area Patients).
If an Out of Area patient needs medical services but is unable to get to his/her registered practice, then NHS England is responsible for arranging a home visit or other care close to home- it is not the responsibility of the registered practice to provide care outside the practice area. Therefore if an Out Of Area patient needs help and cannot get to the registered practice he or she should phone 111 and explain that he/she is an 'Out Of Area Patient'. Other practices are not contracted to provide care for Out of Area Patients in the way that they provide care for temporary patients.
We would be willing to see Out Of Area Patients registered with another practice on a private (fee paying) basis; or we would be able to see a patient who was willing to transfer their permanent registration to us, but we are not able to see them as ‘temporary’ patients because they are not temporary visitors.
These fact sheets have been written to explain the role of UK health services, the National Health Service (NHS), to newly-arrived individuals seeking asylum. They cover issues such as the role of GPs, their function as gatekeepers to the health services, how to register and how to access emergency services.
