Polite Parking Notice 

Could we please ask patients to be respectful of residents’ driveways when parking to use the surgery. 

We are aware that parking is limited in the surgery car park and that parking on the road may be a necessity but we would ask patients not to park in front of drop curbs or other residents’ driveways. 

Thank you for your co-operation

Kings Sutton - Clinic Closure 28/02/19

Having suspended the King’s Sutton clinic back in December 2017 because it was no longer viable for us to run.

It is with regret that we inform you that NHS England has now given us approval to close the King’s Sutton site.

We will continue to provide care to the community of King’s Sutton from the main surgery site in Brackley.

Volunteer Drivers Needed

At South Northants Volunteer Bureau we urgently need volunteer car drivers especially in Brackley. We have over 395 active passengers living in the town who are primarily elderly people who find it difficult to get to essential medical or social care.

Our service is very popular with new passengers wanting to register on a daily basis. Unfortunately due to a shortage of drivers we have to put new passengers on a waiting list until we are in a position where we have more drivers and can fulfil any medical journeys that are required.

The Brackley Area Volunteer Car Service is managed by SNVB and the service helps those from Brackley and surrounding villages. Volunteer car drivers are paid mileage allowance and the voluntary role is totally flexible, with drivers choosing which journeys they would like to do, when and how often.

If you feel that you would be able to support this recruitment drive in anyway or if you would like anymore information then please do not hesitate to contact me.

 Blood Pressure Machine

We have invested in a ‘Do it yourself’ blood pressure machine which you will find situated in the main entrance to the surgery.

You are free to use this machine at any time and it would be extremely helpful if you were to take your blood pressure prior to seeing the GP or Nurse for your appointment.  Take your slip to the clinician you are seeing and they will update your records.  This will save time in your appointment.

If you are not seeing a clinician then hand your printed result to a receptionist so they can record your name and pass the information to a clinician for updating. 

With the approval of a nurse or GP you may use this to record your blood pressure and attend at a time to suit you with no waiting times. Random checks are always acceptable and if you have any questions a receptionist will be happy to help you.
