We offer a limited number of appointments for patients not registered with us. Depending on availability, you will be offered a nurse or GP appointment within 24 hours of request and more advanced booking is not available in most cases.
We offer treatment for unregistered patients except where treatment is more appropriately provided by your own GP. Some examples of things that you should see your own GP for would be repeat prescriptions, dressings (unless at the weekend and arranged through your own practice), ear irrigation or long-term care for chronic conditions. If you are registered with another Banbury practice, we expect that you have phoned your own surgery before requesting an appointment with us.
If a GP is not available, you may be offered a nurse appointment.
Unregistered patients can generally book no more than 24 hours in advance, but in certain circumstances, for example booking a weekend dressing or injection, unregistered patients can book up to a week ahead.
The Health Centre is not a "Walk In Centre" We do however see unregistered patients who will be given the next available appointment time within 24 hours with either a GP or an advanced nurse practitioner. It is always best to phone in advance to book an appointment to be sure that your journey is not wasted or you do not have to wait in town until later.
