Welcome to Summertown Health Centre
Our vision is to provide high quality care to all our patients and to continually strive to improve our service to the community.
Our main surgery is in Summertown with others in Cutteslowe and Wolvercote. Between them they are open for consultations for a total of 140 hours each week including opportunities for early morning, late evening telephone consultations and surgeries and a Saturday morning surgery.
We are a group practice. Our team of GPs work together sharing information within the practice to enable you to see any GP. However, every patient has a named GP responsible for their care (if you do not know who your named GP is, please contact the health centre). We also run regular clinics covering a wide range of services.
Our practice area covers Summertown and North Oxford, including Wolvercote, Cutteslowe, Marston and Kidlington. It goes into the city centre as far as Jericho and Beaumont Street. We also look after students at the University Colleges of Trinity, St Hugh’s, St Edmund Hall and St Antony’s and The Dragon School and Summer Fields School.
Out of normal opening hours you should call 111 if you require urgent health advice.
We love recycling, you can now recycle your empty medicine blister packs by taking them to Supadrug in Cowley - click here for more details
Please note, unfortunately we are unable to offer parking to patients in our car park. This is a staff only car park. Please use the Ferry Pool car park which is a short walking distance from the surgery.
General Practice Transparency Notice for Planning and Research
General Practice Transparency Notice for sharing Data for Planning and Research (Replacement for GPES)
We have been informed that the consultation on this continues. We are awaiting further directions and will update our website when we are informed.
NHS Digital collected patient data from general practices using a service called the General Practice Extraction Service (GPES), which has operated for over 10 years and now needs to be replaced.
Patient data collected from general practice is needed to support a wide variety of research and analysis to help run and improve health and care services. Whilst the data collected in other care settings such as hospitals is valuable in understanding and improving specific services, it is the patient data in general practice that helps us to understand whether the health and care system as a whole is working for patients.
In addition to replacing what GPES already does, the General Practice Data for Planning and Research service will also help to support the planning and commissioning of health and care services, the development of health and care policy, public health monitoring and interventions (including coronavirus (COVID-19) and enable many different areas of research.
For more information about this see the GP Practice Privacy Notice for General Practice Data for Planning and Research.”
