We have Covid Booster Clinics on 23rd and 30th December. It must be at least 3 months since your last vaccine and you have not had covid within the last month.
We thank our community for the huge amount of help and support we have received towards the vaccination programme which for Charlbury has come to an end for the time being although we suspect further groups may become eligible and most likely there will be boosters in the autumn.
We thank our patients that have so very kindly helped us through these challenging times and for all your messages of support.

About Charlbury Medical Centre:
Charlbury Medical Centre was purpose-built in 1996 on the Spendlove Centre site facing the Enstone Road.
We are a two partner (Mr Wesley Rouse and Dr Pippa Brookes-White) rural practice with 4 salaried GP's serving around 5,500 patients living in Charlbury and several surrounding villages in West Oxfordshire. The geographical boundary of our practice area is shown on a map in the surgery entrance foyer.
We aspire to provide our patients with outstanding service in all aspects of care, in a friendly atmosphere fully supported by our excellent nursing and clerical team. We also aspire to become a teaching practice for doctors in training from the University of Oxford but unfortunately we are unable to have medical students with us just yet due to the pandemic.
The surgery has full disabled access.
Charlbury Medical Centre uses Witney Neighbourhood Hub for some of our patients who need to see a GP or Nurse on the same day they call. The Hub is located on the ground floor at Windrush Medical Centre and offers 15 minute slots. If you need to see someone urgently, the reception staff will ask you for some information so that they can offer you the appointment that best meets your needs.
