More Information about Appointments

Covid-19 Antibody testing There is currently no system in place for Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire or Berkshire patients to have a Covid-19 antibody test so we are unable to offer the test. We will update the website when this situation changes.
Smears (Cervical Screening) Smear testing is now back up and running as usual. If you get a letter asking to make an appointment, please do so. You can book these online too.
Contraception All contraception appointments including those concerning implants and coils will initially be booked in as telephone calls with Sister Fajer.  If she believes it is essential that you are seen after she has spoken to you, then she will ask you to come to the surgery but please do not come unless you have spoken to her first. You can book these online too.

Hospital Appointments

Altough many non-urgent hospital appointments have been cancelled, some departments are beginning to get back on their feet and most are now offering urgent appointments or telephone/remote appointments.

Administrative Notes

Sick notes Please request a sick note if required via our medical secretaries.
Consent to Sharing Medical Records We have been asked by the Information Governance office at the OCCG to apply a blanket rule to all our patient records which allows them to be shared with health providers even if in the past you have requested that they are not shared. This is because it is deemed to be in the public interest in this global health crisis which overrides patients right to confidentiality for the duration of the Corona Virus outbreak. For more detailed information please see the Supplementary privacy notice on Covid-19 for Patients here
