  •  Named Accountable GP

Every patient on the practice list has been allocated a Named Accountable GP.  You can ask reception next time you contact the surgery, or email woodlands.medical@nhs.net to confirm the name of your Named Accountable GP, or to change to another doctor.

The Named Accountable GP is ultimately responsible for ensuring that health care issues related to the patients on their list e.g. test results, prescription, letters are processed and acted upon appropriately.

Each doctor has a 'list' and we endeavour to distribute the lists evenly, depending on the number of days the doctor works at the surgery.

Having a Named Accountable GP does not mean that you need to see that GP when you visit the surgery, patients can choose to see whichever doctor they wish.



  • Patient Access to Electronic Records

Patients that sign up for Online Access can book appointments, order repeat prescriptions, change contact details, and view allergies, adverse reactions, medication and immunisations.  Please click here to download an Online Access application form, which you will need to bring to the practice in person along with ID.   A guidance note on how you can use Online Access is available here.  Once you have an Online Access account, you can additionally apply for more detailed access to your medical records - please read the guidance here and then email us at woodlands.medical@nhs.net if you would like to do this.  

New contractual arrangements came into force on 1st April 2014 requiring GP practices to make available a statement of intent about their IT developments.  Woodlands has currently implemented all of the requirements. To view the Statement of Intent click here.



  • Are We Up To Date?

We want to ensure that we can contact patients when we need to.  Do we have the correct contact details for you?  You can pick up a form at Reception, or email us at woodlands.medical@nhs.net to notify us of any changes to your email address or phone number.



  • Access

Our main surgery is Woodlands Medical Centre, Didcot. We also have a branch surgery at Blewbury. Woodlands surgery has an attached pharmacy run by Lloyds. Woodlands has easy access for those with disabilities and ample parking space.  Patients living in Blewbury may prefer to attend the branch surgery, held in the Village Hall each Tuesday and Friday morning  08:00 - 12:00.
