MARSTON MEDICAL CENTRE MOVE - PUBLIC MEETING

We need your views on our proposed move. Please come to a public meeting this Thursday 30th March at the United Reformed Church Hall, 352 Marston Road, Marston, Oxford, OX3 0JB.

MMC Options Presentation

CHANGES TO YOUR USUAL DOCTOR:  During the merger process of the last few months we have had to make a number of changes to the doctors' team.  This means we have had to move 10% of our patients to new usual doctors.  We are sending out text messages, emails and some letters to let you know if this applies to you.  If you have been moved, we are really sorry as we know patients and doctors often develop close relationships, and it can be frustrating having to get to know and to trust someone again.  However, please be patient and give it a go.  The new doctors we have are caring, conscientious and highly competent.
