Telephone Advice

On receiving the request from a patient to speak to a GP or a nurse the message is taken by the receptionist for the named clinician and the message is then conveyed for appropriate action by the clinician.  The clinician will then telephone the patient.    Receptionists cannot put calls directly through to clinicians during clinics unless the situation requires emergency attention.  Telephone consultations are also available with doctors and nurses. 

Cancelling your Appointment

If you are unable to attend an appointment with one of the doctors or nurses, please telephone the surgery to cancel your appointment.  By giving us as much notice as you can you are helping us to make sure that someone else is given your slot.  You are now able to cancel your appointment by texting our appointment cancellation hotline on 07936843797.  Please text your name, date of birth and the date of the appointment which you wish to cancel.

This telephone number is for the cancellation of appointments only

Electronic Prescription Service

Oaklands Surgery is now offering the Electronic Prescription Service, which allows patients to choose or 'nominate' a pharmacy to get your medicines or appliances from.  Your GP then sends your prescription electronically to the place you nominated.  This means:

  • If you collect your repeat prescriptions from your GP you will not have to visit your GP practice to pick up your paper prescription, saving time

  • You will have more choice about where to get your medicines from because they can be collected from a pharmacy near to where you live, work or shop

  • You may not have to wait as long as your repeat prescriptions could be prepared before you arrive
