Welcome to the Charlbury Medical Centre!
We aim to provide patients with outstanding medical care and to equip patients with skills to better look after themselves optimising health through expert, friendly and personal service.
At the moment we ask patients not to come into the surgery unless you have a pre-booked appointment with a doctor or nurse. We have made great progress over the past 9 months in delivering remote total triage and online consultations – and following the up to date government guidelines we want to encourage this to continue.
Digital & telephone consultation will be offered as standard unless there are good clinical reasons otherwise.
However, Charlbury Surgery is delivering face to face care, where clinically appropriate. The practice premises are open to provide care, with adjustments to the mode of delivery.
If you need a consultation please contact the surgery by telephone. You will be triaged to either a telephone appointment or a face to face consultation. When face to face consultations is necessary the examination will be performed in the surgery and all other aspects of the consultation done on the telephone.
If you've been asked to come in by the doctor or nurse, ring the bell and wait for assistance.
For Medication Collection:
If you've come to collect medication and there is a queue please make sure that you keep distance from the person in front of you.
Only urgent medication will be available the same day.
Repeat medication will be available for collection 4 days after receipt of prescription (excluding weekends).
When paying for your prescription please use card payment whenever possible.
The dispensary will be open for medication collection during the following times only:

Charlbury Medical Centre was purpose-built in 1996 on the Spendlove Centre site facing the Enstone Road.
We are a two partner rural practice with 4 salaried GP's serving around 5,500 patients living in Charlbury and several surrounding villages in West Oxfordshire. The geographical boundary of our practice area is shown on a map in the surgery entrance foyer.
We aspire to provide our patients with outstanding service in all aspects of care, in a friendly atmosphere fully supported by our excellent nursing and clerical team. We also aspire to become a teaching practice for doctors in training from the University of Oxford but unfortunately were unable to have medical students with us (autumn 2020) due to Coronavirus.
The surgery has full disabled access.
Charlbury Medical Centre uses Witney Neighbourhood Hub for some of our patients who need to see a GP or Nurse on the same day they call. The Hub is located on the ground floor at Windrush Medical Centre and offers 15 minute slots. If you need to see someone urgently, the reception staff will ask you for some information so that they can offer you the appointment that best meets your needs.
