New Doctors' Appointment System
On the 29th January 2018, the Health Centre introduced a Telephone Triage Appointment System, in which all patients’ requests for a face consultation with a doctor will be triaged by a GP.
This means that patients will receive a phone call from the doctor within a few hours of making contact with the Health Centre, and, if mutually agreed, patients will be seen face to face within the same day (or another day, to be mutually agreed).
Advance Nurse Practitioner James Robson has joined us on 24th September 2018.
Dr Vishal Mittal is covering Dr Sarah Martin's maternity leave from January until May 2019.
Dr Ellen MacIver is our new GP Registrar and she will be with us until August 2019.
The Health Centre has flu vaccines in stock for both age groups - under and over 65's. Please contact reception to book an appointment with the nurse.

Have you thought about your winter plan?
People are encouraged to have a personal winter plan so they are well prepared when the weather takes a turn for the worse and the season for flu, coughs and colds really kicks in.
Tehmeena Ajmal, the county's first winter director, said: "We would like everyone in Oxfordshire to have a winter plan for themselves and their family, so that they know what they can do to keep as well as possible; what they can do if they start to get unwell; and how they can look after older family members, friends or neighbours who might need some help.”
Personal winter plans should include:
- Having a free flu vaccination if you are in an ‘at risk’ group
- Getting help early before your condition worsens.
- Getting repeat prescriptions in plenty of time
- Having a well-stocked medicine cabinet

You can also download or link to the Age UK Oxfordshire leaflet ‘Staying Well this Winter’ which is full of useful advice on how to stay well this winter.
Are you an owner of a 4x4 vehicle?
With the forecast of adverse weather we would be grateful if any patient’s with a 4x4 would be happy to volunteer to pick up/drop off staff or patient’s that have difficulty getting to and from the health centre. This will ensure the health centre runs as smoothly as possible.
If you are willing to volunteer to pick up/ drop off staff or patients, please contact reception on 01865 340558 alternatively email firstname.lastname@example.org
Improving Access to General Practice
On the 7th July 2017, the government published the results of the GP patient survey - patients’ feedback in every surgery and in the county only 2 practices scored 99%. Berinsfield Health Centre was one of them. The data was collected between Jan- March 2017 and the data can be found at
Named GP for all Patients
In order to comply with NHS guidelines, all patients registered at the Berinsfield Health Centre are allocated a named GP.
This does not affect the care you receive and you are still able to see the GP of your choice where possible.
If you would like to know the name of your Named GP please ask at the Reception desk.
