The doctors and staff at Oakworth Medical Practice in Oakworth would like to welcome you to our practice.
We run many clinics for the management of chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes and offer a wide variety of other medical services including antenatal and postnatal care, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups.
This is a teaching practice and members of staff will occasionally have students sitting in during consultations. Please inform reception if you would rather not have a trainee doctor or nurse present.
The surgery is located in the heart of Oakworth and was specifically converted to be a modern General Practice Surgery. Our facilities include disabled parking and access, clean modern consultation rooms, a minor surgery treatment room, a comfortable open plan waiting area with toilet facilities, and a small children's play area. If you have any special access needs or require assistance please inform reception before you arrive and we will do our utmost to help you.
