Online Access is being rolled out to all previous users
Online access will be resuming over the next few weeks. If you previously had online access, between now and the end of November 2018 please look out for an email with details of how to create your new online access log in.
This email will come from an unusual looking email address which starts mjog. followed by a string of letters and numbers and @hc3.mjog.net
for example (each address will have a different middle string)
This address is generated by the new software which runs our text and email reminder service, but we can confirm the email has come from Bicester Health Centre.
Bicester Health Centre Messenger App
With the introduction of our new GP Records clinical system, we are now able to offer patients a new app for smartphones. This will provide messages from the practice about appointments and health information related to you. It also has lots of information from NHS health which we're sure you will find very useful. We are currently sending out text messages to patients with information on how to obtain the app. We look forward to messaging you soon on your shiny new Bicester Health Centre app.
Text Reminders are back online
We have now resumed sending out reminders about appointments by SMS text message. The new system allows you to text us back when you receive a text from us. If you want to cancel the appointment you have just had the reminder for, just reply with the word CANCEL .
If you no longer wish to receive SMS text messages from the practice, please reply using the word STOP . This will stop ALL text messages, including future appointment reminders.

Friends and Family Test...How are we doing?
Since 1 December 2014, all GP surgeries in England have introduced the Friends and Family Test questionnaire. This is a very quick and simple way for you to give feedback about NHS services you have experienced.
You will find questionnaires available around the surgery to complete, or if you prefer you can complete a Friends and Family test questionnaire on line. Please take a few seconds to let us know how we did after your consultation. Thank you.
Parking at the practice
We know that parking has been particularly difficult for some months now and in response to feedback from patients we have now introduced a controlled parking scheme. Patients are free to use the parking bays all the time they are in the surgery or using the on-site dispensary. Anybody using the parking area that is not using the surgery could be issued with a parking penalty notice. We hope that this will ensure parking is for patients only and improves the availability of spaces.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Please only use the spaces directly opposite the Health Centre. If you use parking spaces at the other surgery nearby, at the Community Hospital or on the road you may return to your vehicle to find a parking charge has been issued. In the picture below, the patient parking areas are outlined in green.
