Oak Tree Health Centre is taking part in the National Diabetes Audit – this checks whether people with diabetes are getting good care.
NHS Digital, the organisation managing the audit, have prepared a Patient Information Leaflet which clarifies what information is collected, how it is used, and how it is kept safe. The leaflet also advises that you may opt out of having your data collected should you so wish; please contact Oak Tree Reception to request this.
The Oxfordshire Transformation Programme has considered the development and improvement of health services in Oxfordshire, including some proposed immediate changes.
The work has also been fed into an over-arching five year plan (called a Sustainability and Transformation Plan or STP) across Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Berkshire West (referred to as the BOB STP) which sets out the planning of how these changes will be made.
With the agreement of NHS England, Oak Tree Health Centre has effective from the 20th October 2016 placed a restriction upon its Main Boundary; this has become necessary to reserve health centre capacity for future housing growth to the north east of the Ladygrove Estate. Existing patients of Oak Tree are not affected in any way by this change.
Please see Information > The Health Centre > Practice Boundary for more information.
From 31/03/2016 the Health Centre has made available to its patients access to their Detailed Coded Record (DCR). The DCR gives the patient on-line access to their problems, medications, laboratory test results, documents, allergies, consultations and immunisations.
More information and an application form is available on the website’s Information > The Health Centre page.
