EVENING AND WEEKEND APPOINTMENTS via Extended hours at PML's Neighbourhood Access Hubs
Our patients now have even better access to a doctor at the weekends and in the evenings. Neighbourhood Access Hubs developed by Principal Medical Limited (PML) on behalf of Oxfordshire practices in 2015, have extended their opening hours so that yet more patients can benefit from national GP Access funding (GPAF). This is great news for the 300,000+ patients registered with the 36 PML GP Federation practices in Oxfordshire. READ MORE ABOUT THIS HERE

Ambrosden Medication Collection Days
Ambrsoden is no longer open on a Tuesday and Thursday for medication collection. You will be able to collect your medication on a Monday (11am-1pm) and Friday (11am-12pm), or you can speak to a Dispenser / Receptionist who can help arrange an alternative collection.
Ambrosden Surgery - new opening times from April 2018
We have had a change to our opening days at Ambrosden Surgery from 16th April 2018.
We are now open on the following days:
Mondays 11.00 - 13.00
Wednesdays CLOSED - NO MEDICATION COLLECTION
Fridays 10.00 - 12.00
This means that we will no longer be open for medication collections on a Wednesday. See this page here for more information on our medication delivery service that we can offer you instead.
Telephone number to use for all patients
PLEASE NOTE THE NUMBER YOU NEED TO RING TO SPEAK TO RECEPTION IS 01869 248585 AND NOT 01869 245665. Please ring this number and you should be able to get through to us.
The reason for this phone number change is that we have moved our Reception team to be based at Victoria House Surgery where we can better deal with our phone calls. If you were to ring Langford Medical Practice, those phone calls then get routed through to Victoria House Surgery, which result in even more delays. Accordingly, we would as that you ring this number if you would like to contact the surgery: 01869 248585.
Our Reception team will be able to book appointments for Langford Medical Practice, pass messages onto any member of staff based at Langford, etc. This does not mean you cannot visit Langford in person to make an appointment or speak to a Receptionist - we will still have Receptionists based at Langford to assist you.
Please be assured that we are aware of the problems our patients have had for the last few weeks in trying to ring us, and we are trying to address them as quickly as we can. Thank you for your patience.
Patient Access for patients of Victoria House Surgery
If you haven't renewed your Patient Access account since the 1st of October 2016, please contact the surgery and renew it BEFORE requesting medication, as your account will have become inactive due to the recent practice merger and we won't see any requests you put through. You will need to renew your account before you are able to use this service.
