Appointment Times

Appointment times with our GP's are often variable, however we offer appointments with our GPs, Advanced Nurse Practitioners and Treatment Room from 8am until 6.30pm every weekday. 

Our patients are also able to visit services provided by our Federation DocMed in the Enhanced Access Hub.  Appointments are offered at various local locations at convenient times such as evenings, weekends and Bank Holidays, with multiple clinicians including GPs, Practice Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, Paramedics and Health Care Assistants who offer services such as minor illness clinics, health checks and phlebotomy, along with routine GP appointments..

(The surgery is closed on Saturdays / Sundays and Bank Holidays.)

Phlebotomy Services

After reviewing our blood taking services, we have decided we will now only accept blood-taking forms from Northampton General Hospital.

If you require a blood sample requested by another hospital, you will need to attend that specific hospital's blood-taking unit.

This is to ensure continuity and the safety of all results.

Test Results

If you are waiting for results of tests conducted at the practice (such as blood results & specimen samples) please call 01327 703333 and press Option 3 for ‘Results’ between 1.00pm and 4.30pm Monday to Friday.

You can also view your results online if you have access to online records via SystmOnline, please call the surgery for more information and to register for this service. 

Routine blood and urine test results are usually back within a week but x-ray results, smear results and specialised blood tests can take longer, up to between 8 – 12 weeks.

Home Visits - Including Advanced Practitioners

If you are one of our housebound patients, we can provide a home visit when the need arises.

To make an appointment for a same day home visit you must telephone the Appointments Line before 10:30am on 01327 703333 (option 1).

NHS Health Checks

The NHS Health Check is a prevention programme which aims to reduce the chance of a heart attack, stroke or developing some forms of dementia in people aged 40-74. It achieves this by assessing the top seven risk factors.

What is the purpose of the NHS health check Programme?

The NHS Health Check is a free check-up of your overall health. It can tell you whether you're at higher risk of getting certain health problems, such as: heart disease. diabetes.

Who carries out NHS health checks?

Your NHS Health Check will be done by a healthcare professional. This will usually be a nurse, but it could also be a doctor, pharmacist or healthcare assistant.

Who is the NHS Health Check for?

The check is for people who are aged 40 to 74 who do not have any of the following pre-existing conditions:

  • heart disease
  • chronic kidney disease
  • diabetes
  • high blood pressure (hypertension)
  • atrial fibrillation
  • transient ischaemic attack
  • inherited high cholesterol (familial hypercholesterolemia)
  • heart failure
  • peripheral arterial disease
  • stroke
  • currently being prescribed statins to lower cholesterol
  • previous checks have found that you have a 20% or higher risk of getting cardiovascular disease over the next 10 years

You should be having regular check-ups if you have one of these conditions already negating the need for a Health Check.

If you are currently being prescribed statins for the purpose of lowering cholesterol or have already had an NHS Health Check in another form you will not be invited for a health check at your GP surgery.

How do I get an NHS Health Check?

If you’re aged 40 to 74 and do not have a pre-existing health condition or being prescribed statins you should be invited to an NHS Health Check by your GP or local council every 5 years.
