Trainer: Dr Victoria Jepson.

Islip Medical Practice is based in a small village located 5 miles from Oxford and only 19 miles from the Horton Hospital at Banbury. We look after around 6,000 patients who live in the surrounding area, who provide us with lots of challenges, clinical and social dilemmas, but who also make the work here worthwhile.

The team consists of 8 GPs (female to male ratio 5:3!), 2 practice nurses, 2 health care assistants , a supportive practice manager and a full range of administrative staff. As part of our PCN we also have a physiotherapist, advanced paramedic, mental health workers and community pharmacist working alongside us. Health visitors are based in the building and are also involved in training. We pride ourselves on the standard of our clinical care and our commitment to teaching.

Dr Jepson is the trainer at the practice and was once a registrar….she enjoyed it so much she didn’t leave! All of the doctors share in tutorials, so that the registrar can benefit from their individual enthusiasm and expertise.

We have been a training practice since 2004, when we moved into our present practice building. The registrar has their own room, and is fully involved in all aspects of the practice including partnership and business meetings. They are encouraged to engage in audit and formulary meetings, and very importantly share in coffee with the partners every morning!

The partners work hard, but also believe that a life outside the practice is essential to maintain sanity, so you may find them talking with enthusiasm about marathon cycle rides, musicals or the next family holiday. In summary training at Islip aims to provide you with challenge and opportunity in a supportive and friendly environment. We look forward to meeting you!
