If you need to see a doctor urgently when the practice is closed you can telephone 111. Please only use this service if you cannot wait until the practice reopens. They are unable to make a routine appointment for you to be seen at the practice or deal with any non urgent matters.
NHS 111 makes it easier for you access local health services. You will be assessed, given advice and directed to a local health service that can help you best, which might include an out of hours doctor, pharmacist, dentist or hospital emergency department.
The accident and emergency departments at Northampton and Kettering Hospitals provide care only for people with serious injury or illness and do not provide routine medical care.
If you have a life threatening emergency then please dial 999.
Closed For Training
We participate in a local training initiative organised by NHS Northamptonshire and our surgery is closed on one Wednesday afternoon each month to allow our Doctors, Nurses and other staff time to review and discuss the latest medical treatments and developments and so provide you with a better service.
Details of our closing times will be posted at Reception and at the main entrance as appropriate.
Our training afternoon each month is on a Wednesday and the dates for this year are as follows:
Everyone must stay at home to help stop the spread of coronavirus.
You should only leave the house for 1 of 4 reasons:
shopping for basic necessities, for example food and medicine, which must be as infrequent as possible
one form of exercise a day, for example a run, walk, or cycle – alone or with members of your household
any medical need, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person
travelling to and from work, but only where this absolutely cannot be done from home
Important - These 4 reasons are exceptions – even when doing these activities, you should be minimising time spent outside of the home and ensuring you are 2 metres apart from anyone outside of your household.
