Are you looking to work in a traditional partner lead practice which values autonomy for all staff and continuity of care for patients?


Keen to work in a team that looks after each other whilst embracing change to support the benefit of staff and patients?


Would like to live in an area of beautiful English countryside, yet close to major cities and cultural towns?


Hightown Surgery is the place for you.



We are a practice of 11,400 situated next to the Horton General Hospital which facilitates good links with local consultants.

Banbury is a growing market town in Oxfordshire on the edge of the Cotswolds with picturesque countryside and villages, whilst close to Oxford, Stratford upon Avon, Warwick and Bicester Village.

We have a good choice of schools, both private and state. Banbury has excellent transport links to London, Birmingham and the rest of the UK, both by rail and motorway.


What we can offer you:


- Active support and encouragement of Portfolio careers and special interests. We are working with Oxfordshire CCG to develop opportunities for these at our local DGH.


-2 trainers with the Banbury VTS and weekly mentorship to newly qualified GPs. We support the retainer scheme and have an Active first 5 group locally.


-Weekly PHCT for practice staff, alongside community teams (DNs, palliative care, social prescribers)


- One of the first practices to establish an in house pharmacy team (2 pharmacists, pharmacy technician and prescription clerks)


- A loyal nursing team including ANP and supportive administration and reception teams.


- Tier 2 Visa Sponsors. We are keen that our team benefits from staff with wide range of backgrounds and experience.


-Consistently high patient satisfaction rating, and CQC rating Good. Our PPG is actively involved.


-Daily get together at lunchtime and an open door policy when not consulting.


-15 minute appointments


We are keen to explore new ways of working and have a well developed workflow optimisation. We are exploring how we can use E-consult and telephone consultations to maximise face 2 face time for patients that really need it.

We are active members of the local federation and PCN and our senior partner is Clinical Director of Banbury PCN.


We are working with PPG and staff to encourage more environmentally sustainable ways of working and travel to work, and are registered with the RCGP Green Impact for Health.


We are a Park run practice and have regular participation from practice members.


If Hightown sounds like somewhere you might be happy working we would love to hear from you. Please contact our Practice Manager Diane Stringer on or 01295 270722 so we can answer any queries and arrange an informal visit.
