Welcome to Oak Vale Medical Centre

Our team is dedicated to your continued good health; we approach your care with professionalism, discretion and friendliness. We hope that you can count on a warm welcome from everyone involved here at the practice.


Our building has been built to cater for the needs of the disabled. All of our consulting rooms are located on the ground floor but if you need any help in accessing the building, please make this clear when you are booking an appointment and we shall offer you what help we can to facilitate your visit. If you have any disability with which you need help e.g hearing, vision, mobilitiy, please let us know and we can arrange for a member of staff to help you.

Our appointment system is an innovative system which has been introduced successfully in other GP surgeries around the country. We introduced it in February 2013 and the system works as follows. 

 Telephone the surgery before 11 am, one of our doctors will telephone you back on the same day and discuss your medical problems with you. They be able to help you over the telephone,If you need to come to see a doctor, they will give you a time to come down, usually on the same day if that is convenient for you. If there is a time during the day when you will not be able to take a call from the doctor, please let the receptionist know. Similarly, if you work and there is a limited period of time when you can take a call, please let the receptionist know.

Before a fully trained hospital doctor can work as an independent G.P., they need to complete additional time working in a G.P.Training Medical Practice, Oak Vale is one of these practices. These  doctors will have been qualified for 2 to 5 years when they join the practice.

Guide to GP services

You can download or view a copy of 'It's your practice - a patient guide to GP services' as described above. However, this guide was produced before the 2013 NHS reorganisation, and so refers to some organisations and procedures that no longer exist. However, it still contains a great deal of helpful information about GP practices themselves.

June 2015 Oak Vale are awaiting news of an update of this document.
