We are a small city practice, located in the centre of Oxford City. We are planning in the future to provide a friendly and enthusiastic environment for GP registrars although currently we do not have a fully trained GP trainer at the practice. Dr Chloe Borton is part way through qualifying as a GP trainer and our new doctor Dr Rachel Allen, due to start working with us in May 2016, is a fuly qualified GP trainer.
We have a healthy mix of patients with one third being inner city residents, a third students, and a third being from surrounding areas. Currently our list size is about 5000, which means we are a relatively small general practice. We look after students from both Hertford and New College, with weekly clinics held at both, and also provide medical cover for a residential home in Cumnor, Oxford.
Location and Premises
We are located in the centre of town and are very close to landmarks such as the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford Playhouse and the Randolph Hotel. We have a small car park for doctors located behind the surgery. The surgery is spread over four floors, including a ground floor consultation room.
The practice is equipped with video recording equipment, and has extra medical equipment such an ECG, pulse oximeter, sonicaid and defibrillator well as equipment for minor surgery.
The practice is fully computerised, and uses the EMIS clinical record system. All the computers are networked, and blood and pathology requests are processed online using the ICE system. Results and hospital discharge letters are communicated to us electronically which means we are kept up to date with the secondary care of out patients. We use the “Choose and Book” system for arranging outpatient appointments. This offers patients the freedom of calling on the day they receive a confirmation letter from the practice to book an appointment at the time of their choice and at the hospital of their choice.
The patient list is shared, and this means that patients can choose which doctor they would like to see at any time. However, all of the partners have specialist interests, and patients may choose to see different doctors for different problems.
Dr Chloe Borton is the supervisor for medical students at the practice. Chloe originally trained in psychology at Oxford, and then trained in medicine after working for a period as a school teacher. Since qualifying at St Mary's hospital in London, she pursued an interest public health medicine before training in general practice back in Oxford.
