What is the Practice like?

With 28,000 patients, Hedena Health is one of Oxford's largest GP Practices. Our main site is in Headington at Bury Knowle Park and we have 3 small sites located within a 5-mile radius of this hub. We have onsite parking at all of our sites.

We are an innovative, friendly and supportive teaching and training practice. We cover mixed population groups, with some pockets of deprivation, but mainly we are about national average for socio-economic groups and diversity.

As well as, being a well-established training and University of Oxford teaching practice, we work in partnership with other practices and companies to develop improved ways of providing excellent care to our patients. We have been successful in managing public health initiatives to help improve the lives of the communities that we serve as well as promoting collaboration with neighbouring practices to ensure the best for our patients.

We have a focus on staff wellbeing through initiatives such as an annual Away Day, staff outings (a boat trip is booked for the Summer and our Christmas and summer parties are legendary), and a Hedena running club. Fresh fruit deliveries and homemade cakes and goodies are a staple in our staff room and morning coffee is in our sunny Quad! We are situated in an ideal location in Oxford right next to a large, beautiful Park and staff parking is available.
