    Covid-19

    Due to the ongoing Covid-19 crisis, Oxford Brookes Medical Centre is currently operating in a different way. To help protect patients and staff, access to the Medical Centre will be limited to those patients that have already spoken to or had an e-consultation with a clinician. Our team of Doctors and Nurse Practitioners are available to talk to you over telephone, video consultation or e-consultation and will continue to provide our full range of services. If necessary they can arrange for your to be seen face-to-face at a designated appointment time.

    Please do not come to the Medical Centre for prescription requests or general enquiries. Please contact the Medical Centre via an on-line e-consultation by following the link on our website or by telephone on 01865 483193.

    If you need to arrange for a Meningococcal MenACWY vaccination, please telephone 01865 483193 first.
