Welcome to The Oaks Medical Centre
About our new website...
We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us.
Our dedicated team are here to treat those minor ailments that occur as well as providing specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues. The technology also means you can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription or cancel an appointment.
Partners in Care
Once registered, patients and healthcare professionals work together to ensure the most appropriate care is provided. This partnership philosophy extends even further and our active patient group exists to make sure that patient needs and the practice offerings are always heading in the same direction.
Warfarin Prescriptions - Patient Information
As of the 1st January 2016 The Oaks Medical Centre will no longer be issuing repeat prescriptions for Warfarin. All patients on Warfarin should now receive their repeat prescriptions directly from their Anticoagulant Clinic.
Should you have any questions, please get in touch directly with your anticoagulant clinic for any further clarification.
Have you received your annual flu jab yet?
If not, why not come along to our Flu Drop in Clinic on Wednesday 27th January at The Shady Lane Surgery.
Throughout the afternoon Nurses will be available to vaccinate any patients who wish to receive their annual flu vaccination.
Don’t worry, there is no need to book an appointment. Simply come along to The Shady Lane Surgery any time between 2.00pm and 8.00pm.
For more information please contact the surgery.
