A different approach
We believe that women should have easy access to expert healthcare, and be able to make informed choices. Nobody should be suffering from pain, discomfort or embarrassment. Our private clinics are led by GPs who specialise in primary care gynaecology and female contraception, and who appreciate the significance of your experiences.
From preventative care to examinations, treatments and second opinions, everything we do is based around you as an individual. Our personalised appointments give you the time to talk through your concerns and ask all your questions, which we’ll answer with expertise and understanding. Then, we can give you all the information you need to make the best decisions for you.
At Oxona, there is no need for a referral. Our flexible approach means we’re able to offer quick appointments that fit in with your schedule. Then we’ll discuss the best pathways for you – whether thats continuing your care with us, a referral back to the NHS, or connecting you with a private consultant.
There’s nothing you can’t talk to us about, and you will always be taken seriously.

What our patients think
After being let down by the NHS, I booked in to see Dr Kelly at Oxona. I was listened to and questioned appropriately, then was helped by the lovely assistant to book in a procedure. This was by far the best Mirena fitting I have ever had, and the relaxing enviroment with the pain relief made me feel very at ease. I couldn’t recommend the team at Oxona Healthcare more!
I cannot rate Oxona highly enough! The team put me at ease and I felt listened to for the first time. My HRT was adjusted and I feel so much better for it.
Vanessa, St Albans
I had some worrying symptoms and could not get to see my GP. I got an appointment at Oxona within two days to see a doctor face-to-face, and I was immediately referred for an ultrasound which I got the following week. Thank you Oxona!
Frequently asked questions
What pain relief do you offer during coil fits?
Our doctors are very experienced and many patients find that feeling confident and safe engenders a relaxed atmosphere where they do not feel like they need or want pain relief. However, we also very much respect patient choice. We recognise coil fits can be painful, and affect different women differently. We offer codeine, Entonox (nitrous oxide) and local anaesthetic (cervical block). If you are interested in pain relief options you can discuss this with your doctor prior to the procedure.
What is Entonox?
Entonox is also known as Nitrous Oxide or ‘gas and air’. It is used in many medical settings as a reliable and fast impacting pain relief. Some women will be familiar with Entonox from childbirth. Entonox is most effective after 2 minutes’ use. The effects wear off very quickly so is ideal for short procedures. You can drive 30 minutes after taking Entonox. Please note Entonox is currently only available in our Oxford clinic.
Do you treat nervous patients?
Yes. We have the luxury of time to ensure our patients are fully informed and feel confident in the treatment they are receiving or any procedures. Our doctors are highly trained specialists in women’s health and procedures. For coil/implants, we can discuss pain relief options and assist in mitigating any fears or concerns.
How much do private prescriptions cost?
All NHS prescriptions are a set fee regardless of the cost of the drug. However, private prescriptions will be charged by the pharmacy for the individual drugs. The cost is roughly £20 for most HRT drugs, and £25 for Testosterone. A course of antibiotics can range from £5-20 per prescription. Your NHS GP may be able to prescribe HRT drugs, but this is at their discretion.
