The Nuffield Practice
Welcome to the Nuffield Practice Website. We hope you will find this a useful resource to help you to make good use of our services.
Our practice philosophy is to provide a high quality and caring service to our patients, which is accessible and considerate, in an open and friendly atmosphere. We believe in involving patients in their health care by open and effective communication. We recognise the value of each other and encourage the active participation of all our staff in improving the ways in which we deliver our service.
We are proud that ours is a training practice, accredited by the University of Oxford Deanery for training doctors in general practice.

PROBLEMS WITH PATIENT ACCESS
Unfortunately the website, which our patients use for ordering prescriptions and booking appointments online, is experiencing technical problems. We are unable to affect the speed of the resolution of the problem but we are aware of it and will keep you updated on progress. If you have an urgent request for medication, then please call the Practice on 01993 703641 and choose option 2.
ARE YOU TRAVELLING ABROAD?
We now have an assessment form for you to fill in and bring along to your first appointment with the Nurse. The form will help the Nurse understand where you are going and which travel vaccinations you will need. Please go to the 'Travel Vaccinations' page in the Further Information section.
When it’s less urgent than 999
What is 111?
I f you live in Oxfordshire, you can now call 111 when you need help fast, but it isn’t a 999 emergency. You can ring 111, 365 days a year, to reach a full range of local health services, including out of hours, doctors, community nurses, emergency dental care and late opening chemists. Calls from landlines and mobile phones are free – just like 999.
Type Text Talk for Deaf or Hard-of-Hearing People
The 111 service is also available via typetalk on number 18001 111
When do I use it?
People should use the NHS 111 service if they need help or advice urgently but it’s not a life-threatening situation.
