To register for our online services, please complete an application form from Reception or download one by clicking here.

Please bring the completed form, together with your photo ID and address verification documents to the Surgery. The service is available for patients over 14 years of age.

When you call with these documents, we will be able to provide you with a user name and password, together with a handy guide – Patient Handbook. Copies of the handbook are available from Reception or by clicking here.

Once you have obtained your user name and password, please click on the 'Systmonline' logo above to be redirected to the ‘Systmonline’ homepage.

From the ‘Systmonline’ website you will be able to:

  • View your past and future appointments
  • Book and cancel GP appointments
  • View your current prescriptions
  • Order your repeat prescriptions
  • Complete questionnaires about your health (not yet available)

For our patients that are registered to use SystmOnline, it is now available as an app on iPhone and iPad. From the app, you can order repeat prescriptions and will soon be able to book appointments. The app is free and available by searching for 'SystomOnline' on the App Store.

The app is currently available on iOS devices only, however TPP, the publishers of the app hope to release an Android version soon.

Appointments are subject to availability – pre-bookable up to 4 weeks ahead: in addition, appointments for the same day, these bookings will be made available from 8.30am (the same time as for patients visiting or telephoning the Surgery).

Where there are no appointments available to reserve on line for the same day of booking, patients may continue to visit or telephone the Surgery, particularly where an urgent appointment is being requested.

Welcome to Oakwood Surgery

This website has been designed to tell you about the practice and the services that we offer.
Please read it carefully. We trust that you will find it helpful and informative.

The Surgery Reception is normally open from 8.30am to 6.00pm (for urgent matters 8.00am to 6.30pm), Monday to Friday (Wednesday 8.30am - 5.30pm). The Surgery does not open at lunchtime, but we are available for urgent situations which require attention before the Surgery re-opens in the afternoon. We will extend this cover to 8.00am and 6.30pm, and throughout our lunchtime closure, but only for cases requiring urgent attention.

Late evening appointments are available on Monday, Tuesday and Friday.

Please note: in order to further improve the quality of care to our patients, the Surgery will close one afternoon per month (currently the 4th Wednesday of every month) to participate in educational activities organised by NHS Nottinghamshire County. However, we will continue to provide emergency cover during this time.

The practice would like to thank the various advertisers who have helped to produce this Website. However, it must be pointed out that the accuracy of any statements cannot be warranted, nor any products or services advertised, be guaranteed or endorsed.

General Practice Research Database (GPRD)

This practice is proud to contribute data to the General Practice Research Database (GPRD)

GPRD is the world’s largest and most extensively used database of its kind. It is used internationally for research into disease, drug safety and public health.

Patients’ records from hundreds of practices in the UK are made anonymous so that research users cannot identify the patients or the practices. Added together, these anonymous records provide a vast amount of information for medical research. 
Our role
  • We contribute data from this practice to the GPRD and are proud to do our bit towards this valuable database
  • Anonymity of individual patients and clinicians is assured in all cases.

 Children in Need 2013

Here at Oakwood Surgery, we raised £138 for BBC Children in Need 2013. Thank you to all who took part in wearing pyjamas, onesies and other outfits. Thank you to everyone who bought a book at our book sale, donated, and gave to a good cause.
