Healthcare Team

Community Nurses

District nurses, health visitors and midwife work from our two surgeries. They are not employed by the Practice.

District Nurses offer nursing care to our patients in the community, deal with prolonged illness and help with rehabilitation. They can help and offer advice to carers. Patients who are housebound or who require palliative or end of life care are looked after by the District Nurses. They work for Oxford Health.

The district nurse team can be telephoned direct on 01865 903177, Monday to Friday from 8am – 4pm.


The midwife, runs a weekly clinic on Tuesdays, alternating between the Goring and Woodcote surgeries. She provides a comprehensive service of antenatal and postnatal care and believes in providing choice and information for new mothers.

Antenatal appointments are also available with the doctors during their normal surgery hours.
