We are working in partnership with NHS England and the local Oxfordshire system to provide much needed, non-elective surgeries that cannot at present be carried out in NHS hospitals due to COVID-19. Many more of our staff have been deployed out to other NHS facilities to provide extra clinical skills to the front line. We are incredibly proud of them and the extraordinary work they are doing.

Our Hospital remains closed for face-to-face appointments at present. Telephone consultations are available with some Consultants – please call us on 01295 252 281 for more information.

As per national guidance, we will soon be resuming the more time-sensitive private activity.  If you have a procedure booked with us, you will be required to purchase a COVID-19 test which we will carry out for you. This test is to be done 48 hours before your procedure and you will be required to self-isolate for this time until your procedure has been carried out.
