Out of Hours

The 111 Service will take over from 6.30pm to 8.00am Monday through to Friday morning and 6.30pm on Friday to 8.00am Monday.  Although the Surgery is closed medical help is always available by calling the surgery number and listening to the information.  When the surgery is closed the Out of Hours may be contacted on  - 111. 

For immediate, life-threatening emergencies, call 999.

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

Information Sharing

Health and care organisations have taken great strides in bringing together health and care services to improve the experience for individuals.

As part of this work, we want to ensure that health and care professionals directly involved in a person’s care have access to the most up-to-date information about them.

My Care Record facilitates the lawful sharing between health and care professionals through access to records by participating partners.

ACR project for patients with diabetes

 The data is being processed for the purpose of delivery of a programme, sponsored by NHS Digital, to monitor urine for indications of chronic kidney disease (CKD) which is recommended to be undertaken annually for patients at risk of chronic kidney disease e.g., patients living with diabetes. The programme enables patients to test their kidney function from home. We will share your contact details with Healthy.io to enable them to contact you and confirm that you wish them to send you a test kit. This will help identify patients at risk of kidney disease and help us agree any early interventions that can be put in place for the benefit of your care. Healthy.io will only use your data for the purposes of delivering their service to you. If you do not wish to receive a home test kit from Healthy.io we will continue to manage your care within the Practice. Healthy.io are required to hold data we send them in line with retention periods outlined in the Records Management code of Practice for Health and Social Care. Further information about this is available at http://bit.ly/uACRtest.
