About Us

Oxford Road Medical Centre is a purpose built medical centre providing easy access for both able bodied and disabled patients. We aim to provide a high standard of medical care in a friendly and professional manner. We have produced this website to provide you with information about the way the Practice is organised and the services that are provided directly by Practice Staff, or by other members of the Primary Health Care Team.  Services will, by necessity, change from time to time, please do not hesitate to telephone the Practice to check the current position.

Practice Area / Boundary

The practice boundary stops at:
  • Kings Causeway in Brierfield to the North
  • Kiddrow Lane / Liverpool Road to the West
  • Holme Chapel in Cliviger to the South
  • Hurstwood to the East

If you are in any doubt as to whether you live within the practice boundary, please speak to reception.

Newly Registered Patients

In order to register with this Practice as a permanent patient, you must plan to stay in the local area for a minimum of 6 months.  New patients registering with the Practice will be asked to complete a Health Questionnaire, which enables the Practice to manage ongoing medical conditions. GMS1

You will be registered with the Practice as a whole and will be assigned to the list of one of the Doctors.  When making an appointment you may request a consultation with the Doctor of your choice.

Temporary Residents

We are always happy to see any relatives or friends staying with you if they need a Doctor or Nurse.  They will need to fill out a short form for the information to be returned to their own Doctor.  Please arrive 10 minutes before your appointment to allow time for completion of the necessary forms.

Patient Data

We have recently added a New Page to our Website, Patient Data. Please click on the link to navigate to this page

Children and the Waiting Room

We have a small play area in the waiting room which is unsupervised.  We do try to keep a selection of toys available which all are welcome to use, but we do invite parents to bring (and take away again!) toys to amuse their own children.

Zero Tolerance

The Doctors and Staff of this Surgery re-affirm their commitment to do everything possible to protect themselves, patients and visitors from unacceptable behaviour and their zero tolerance of any incident that may cause hurt, alarm, damage or distress.  This includes actual or threatened physical violence or verbal abuse, which leads to fear for a person's safety.

In this situation we are obliged to notify the patient in writing of their removal from the list, and record in a patient's medical records the fact of the removal and circumstances leading to it.  The PCT is then responsible for providing further medical care for such patients.

Disabled Patients

The Surgery is fully equipped for disabled access, including toilet facilities.
