We have 11 doctors, six nurses and four health care assistants who work across our two sites. Our appointment system therefore covers both our surgeries in order to maximise the appointment options available with these clinicians for our patients. Patients may therefore be offered the next available appointment in the practice as a whole, which means that an appointment will be either at the Eynsham Medical Centre or at the Long Hanborough Surgery.
In order to see a particular doctor or nurse for a particular appointment or to have an appointment within a given timescale, a patient may therefore have to travel to the surgery which is not the nearest to their home. If a patient is not prepared or able to travel to the surgery site offered then there may be an additional delay before an appointment is available at the preferred surgery.
