We are part of the Extended Hours Scheme which means we are open for a short period on most Saturday mornings. Appointments are available between 8.30am and 10.30am for ROUTINE PRE-BOOKABLE ONLY appointments. Please contact reception in advance if you would like to be seen on a Saturday morning. If you have an urgent medical problem on a Saturday morning which cannot wait until Monday please call NHS 111.
Please be aware these surgeries do not run on Bank Holiday weekends.
GP Access Fund Scheme
As part of the Government’s pledge to provide a 7 day NHS they have rolled out a scheme to provide additional access to patients during evenings and at weekends. The GP practices across South East Oxfordshire will be working as a collective to provide the recommended number of these additional routine, pre-bookable appointments each week.
PLEASE NOTE : These appointments are aimed at routine GP care and do NOT replace the current urgent 111 service. If you require an urgent GP appointment when your surgery is closed then you still need to call 111. This GP Access service is NOT for emergencies or walk-in appointments and you will be directed to call NHS 111 in these cases.
Each surgery will be providing services at different times and on different days; however you will be able to book into an available slot at ANY of the participating surgeries. If you consent then the clinician who sees you will have access to your private medical record. Please note that if you feel an onward referral to a specialist or any further investigations may be required, then it may be better to arrange an appointment with your own doctor; however, this is not essential.
Due to the nature of these appointments we would ask that patients try and limit their queries to one problem only.
Upcoming GP Access Scheme days for Mill Stream Surgery are:
