Welcome to Oakley Medical Practice

With patient’s needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations. 

We are currently offering telephone, on-line and face-to-face appointments.  All Doctor appointments are released at 8am on the day.  Our Reception Team will ask for brief details of your call so your problems can be signposted to the most appropriate service. If you require a face-to-face appointment the doctor will first speak to you on the telephone to assess your problem and arrange a convenient time for you to be seen.

Please use our 'NHS Contact Us Online' service.  This service allows you to describe your medical problems to the Doctor including sending photographs of the problem.  The Doctor will then deal with your complaint in a timely manner.  'NHS Contact Us Online' may also be used to request repeat medication, sick note requests, and for any general enquiries.

Please remember to use NHS 111 or your local pharmacy for minor ailments.

Please do not attend the surgery if you have symptoms of coronavirus. If you have symptoms of coronavirus and an appointment booked at the surgery, please phone to postpone the appointment to a later date.

Nurse and Health Care Assistant appointments are now available.  This includes cervical screening, immunisations, blood tests, and long term condition monitoring.

If you wish to register with the Practice, please register through our online services via our website, or telephone the surgery on 0113 2720900 for details.
