Other clinics & services

For details of the following clinics and services contact reception.

Minor Surgery

The doctors perform minor operations at the health centre. Your doctor will explain what is involved and ask you to complete a consent form.

Maternity services

Maternity care is provided by your GP and a community midwife. Antenatal courses are run by the midwife. Please ask her for details.

Most mothers from this area have their babies in the Women's Centre at the John Radcliffe Hospital, but for some, Chipping Norton Hospital can be offered as an alternative. This can be discussed with your midwife.

Child Health Surveillance

Child health checks are carried out by your own doctor in surgery. Childhood immunisations are done by the practice nurses in the treatment room. Our practice nurses will be pleased to help with further information.

Minor Injuries Unit

The Minor Injuries Unit is situated in the Witney Community Hospital. It is open from 10.00am to 10.30pm each day, including at Christmas and on Bank Holidays. They also have x-ray facilities. They can be contacted on 01865 903841

Primary Care Visiting Service

The Primary Care Visiting Service (PCVS) is made up of a team of emergency care clinicians who are working closely with GP practices to provide home visits to the elderly and housebound. If you request a Home Visit, the GP may send a member of the Primary Care Visiting Service to see you; they will assess you and will give you advice, and if necessary they will call the GP for further input.

Neighbourhood Access Hub

Neighbourhood Access Hubs provide same-day (or in some areas weekend) urgent appointments for patients as an alternative to an appointment at their own GP surgery. This service helps GP practices meet the increasing demand for urgent appointments and enables GPs more time for planned care.

A Neighbourhood Access Hub is not a ‘Walk-in Centre’ – you must be referred by your own GP practice for an appointment. This service is based on the ground floor of the Windrush medical Centre.

Zero Tolerance Statement

Our staff come to work to care for others, and it is important for all members of the public and our staff to be treated with respect.
We aim to treat our patients courteously at all times and expect our patients to treat our staff in a similary way.

We take seriously any threatening, abusive or violent behaviour againist any of our staff or patients. if a patient is violent or abusive, they will be asked to stop. if they persist, we may exercise our rights to take action to have them removed, immediately if necessary from our pratice list.

The practice considers thratening behaviour to be:

Attempted or actual aggressive threatening physical actions made towards any member of staff.
The use of aggressive, threatening or abusive language, (including raising of the voice, swearing and cursing, shouting) which threatens or intimidates staff.
In line with the rest of the NHS, and to ensure this is fully observed we have a Zero Tolerance policy in place, whereby any aggressive or violent behaviour towards our staff will not be tolerated under any circumstances.

Anyone giving verbal abuse to members of the staff will be sent a letter from the Practice stating that this behaviour will not be tolerated and may result in the removal from the Practice patient list. There will be no appeal process.

We hope that you will understand and welcome this policy which is in place for the best interest of our hard working staff as well as our patients.
