About Deddington Health Centre
Deddington Health Centre is a surgery in the north of Oxfordshire, set in the very attractive village of Deddington which is on the edge of the Cotswolds. The surgery is in a very rural setting in that the nearest towns are 5 or more miles away. There is Banbury to the north, Chipping Norton to the West, Brackley to the East, and Woodstock, Kidlington and Bicester further south. The surgery draws its’ population from 48 villages that cover over 200 square miles which can be seen on our List of Towns that we cover. Because of the rural nature of the area we cover, there is no Pharmacy nearby, and so the surgery has a Dispensary, which provides the medication prescribed by the GPs to most of our patients.
The surgery was purpose built in 1971 to provide healthcare to 7000 patients. It was extended in the early 1980’s and now provides healthcare to approximately 9300 patients. There are 4 GP partners at the surgery, and 2 salaried GPs. Dr Sue Ruddock is the Senior Partner. Since 2005, we have been a training practice and each year we have a new GP Registrar – who is a GP in training. To read more about GP training please click here. We are also a training practice for medical students, health visitor students and nursing students.
The surgery philosophy is to provide excellent quality medical care within a personalised framework. Our practice team of Doctors, Nurses, Pharmacist, Receptionists, Dispensers and Secretaries all aim to provide a first class service within a busy medical setting. They are assisted in this by a variety of other staff not actually employed by the surgery, but who are also involved in patient care, and you can read about them all here on our website, or in our Practice Leaflet (available at Reception).
