From Monday 19th July 2021, we can confirm that all staff at the Surgery will continue to wear masks and PPE beyond the 19th July during face-to-face consultations.
We kindly request that all patients attending the Surgery also continue to wear a facemask or covering (unless clinically exempt) until further notice. We will continue to operate a social distancing model on our premises. We have made this decision in line with Government advice on maintaining the use of masks and face coverings in health settings.
Complying with our policy will ensure the ongoing protection of clinically vulnerable patients and staff, and will also mean that we can maintain open access to our services while reducing the risk of transmission to our staff and the impact this would have on our ability to operate.
We thank you for your cooperation and support
On 10th March 2020 Oakfield Surgery changed the way you can book your appointment.
From the above the only way to book an appointment is with AskMyGP
Save time and book online - no more queuing on the telephone!
· Available 24/7 and we respond during working hours Monday to Friday
· We will usually get back to you within 2 hours (after 4:30pm it might be the next day)
· You can request a particular doctor or nurse (so long as they’re working)
· You can choose to be contacted by the surgery by telephone or secure message
· If we need to see you we will usually give you an appointment the same day
· You will need to register the first time you use askmyGP, but this can easily be done without any paperwork.
· AskmyGP is available to all our patients, and you can use it to ask about your children or other people you care for (if they are registered with us).
