1 Appointment 1 Problem 1 Patient: 

We politely ask our patients to only discuss one problem per appointment, for the following reasons:

  • This helps ensure clinics run to schedule and other patients aren’t inconvenienced.
  • We don’t want our doctors to rush through each problem as a serious illness might get missed.
  • Too many problems can distract the doctor on dealing with your main problem.

If you need an additional appointment to discuss further problems, our reception will be happy to help.

Thank You

Repeat Prescriptions:

Please note that repeat prescriptions take a full 48 hours (2 whole working days) to prepare.    Please remember that it is your responsibility to ensure that you hand your request into the surgery on time to avoid running out of your medication.

OUR MISSION STATEMENT:

"DELIVERING SAFER, BETTER, QUALITY CARE AT ALL TIMES"

PEAK TIME TELEPHONE CALLS:

Our peak times for telephone calls are between 8am and 11am.  Please try to avoid calling regarding non-urgent matters outside of these times.  Please only telephone for test results after 2pm.  Thank you.

 

 

Trainee Doctors

TRAINING PRACTICES IN KENT, SURREY AND SUSSEX

The practice has now been accredited as being suitable for the training of those doctors intending to become General Practitioners.

This means that the practice and doctors have had to achieve a number of standards which have been assessed by Health Education Kent, Surrey and Sussex, acting on behalf of the national organisation (the Postgraduate Medical Education Board).

Oakfield Health Centre currently hosts a GP registrar (FY2 Doctor in training) who we have until August.

FY2 Doctors have a lot of experience of hospital medicine.

If you are seeing this doctor you can expect to receive the quality of service you would from your own GP.  If you have any concerns please mention this to a member of staff.

In order for the GP Registrars to successfully complete their training they need to be assessed on their consulting skills.  This is done by the appointed assessors viewing a video of the registrars consultations.  You may be asked for your permission to have your consultation recorded in this way.  If you agree, you will need to give your written permission and there is a consent form available at the desk, which you will be offered.  If the doctor appears to be recording your consultation and you have not signed a consent form then you should indicate this to him or her immediately.  The recording will be used for educational purposes only.  Further information about this process and the confidentiality of it, can be obtained from the reception staff.
