The friendly Oxford surgery – Quality with Kindness
Welcome to 28 Beaumont Street, a practice that offers a full range of medical services to residents and students in and around Oxford. We are a small practice in the centre of the town. Our small size means you can expect a personal service, with appointments at the times which suit you, and with the clinical staff of your choice. We are ideally situated for people who live or work in the centre of Oxford, but welcome residents and visitors based in any part of Oxford.
We aim to be able offer an appointment with a doctor or nurse within two working days of when you request one, which means that easy access to medical services is one of our strengths. You may expect a longer wait if you want to make an appointment for one particular doctor or nurse.
As a practice we have scored very well on the Quality and Outcomes Framework, the national programme for resourcing and rewarding good medical practice. Find out more here: http://www.qof.ic.nhs.uk/index.asp.

Named accountable GPs
It is an NHS requirement that you have a named doctor. For this reason, on registration, all our patients are allocated a named GP who is nominally responsible for patients overall care at the practice. If you do not know who your named GP is and would like to, please contact the reception team. If you have a preference as to which GP is your named GP we will make reasonable efforts to accommodate this request.
However, irrespective of who your named GP is, you are welcome to consult with any one of the doctors at the surgery. For this reason you might find that your preferred doctor is not your named GP. This will not affect your care, nor influence the communication between the hospital and your doctor in any way. We are very supportive of you being able to see the practitioner of your choice at 28 Beaumont Street.
