Oakwood Medical Clinic is the partnership of Dr Nicola Black and Dr Geoff Lavery. Between them they have many years experience working as GPs in D15, in both single-handed and group practices, dealing with medical card and private patients alike. As a result, they have intimate knowledge of the local population health needs, strong links with local health service providers and they have established themselves as hard working, enthusiastic and trustworthy GPs. In addition to their vocational GP training, each doctor has attained further qualifications in their chosen areas of special interest, providing for a broad synergistic skills-base within the clinic. Over a number of years they have worked closely together and have forged a strong bond based on their mutual shared view of the future of general practice – maintaining the principal values of primary care while embracing modern developments. With this in mind they have developed the Oakwood Medical Clinic team to enable appointment access continuity care, with choice of male or female doctors, providing an expansive range of services for all age groups.
Please note that a standard appointment duration is 15 minutes. This is to enable appointments to run to time, to allow for the smooth running of the clinic and to limit undue delays for others with appointments.
We respectfully ask patients to book a prolonged appointment if they feel that they will need more than fifteen minutes or if they have a number of issues to be discussed. It is simply NOT FEASIBLE for a doctor to be expected to deal with multiple issues SAFELY, within a 15 minute timeslot. We would appreciate your understanding in this matter.
Patients are no longer required to wear facemasks when attending the surgery. We do however request that patients who have respiratory symptoms please test for Covid 19 before presenting for their appointments. In cases where the test is negative we would kindly ask such patients to please wear a mask while in the clinic for the safety and comfort of others.
For any patient who would feel more comfortable if their healthcare provider wore a mask during their consultation – please ask and we will be happy to oblige.
