Flu Vaccines Delayed
Due to unforeseen road freight challenges, we have been informed there will be a delay receiving the flu vaccine delivery.
As a result we have had to postpone our flu clinic appointments until mid October.
To reassure patients, we order enough vaccines for our eligible cohort a year in advance - these vaccines were ordered in September 2020 and this delayed delivery is totally beyond our control, however we apologise for any inconvenience caused.
Our flu clinics have been built for Saturday 16th October and Saturday 23rd October. These are for patients aged 65 and over and for 18 to 64-year-olds who are in a clinical risk group.
Please call the surgery on 01280 702436 to book your appointment.
NHS Blood Test Tub Shortage
Due to a nationwide shortage of blood bottles we have been instructed by NHS England to restrict blood tests to those that are urgent or necessary for safe prescribing of medication or urgent monitoring of a condition.
This will mean that we may need to cancel any non-urgent blood test appointments already booked, but we will let you know as soon as we have reviewed our appointment lists. We will get in touch with you, by phone or text , if we need to cancel. If you haven’t heard from us please attend your appointment as normal, there is no need for you to phone and check.
This is a major undertaking and will cause significant disruption for both you and us but it is unfortunately outside of our control. Thank you for your patience.
PLEASE NOTE: From 19 July all people entering the surgery and the pharmacy WILL STILL BE EXPECTED TO WEAR A MASK (unless they are exempt). This is to ensure the safety of patients and staff.

URGENT CARE UNIT
The Urgent Care Unit is for patients of Brackley Medical Centre who have a new, urgent medical issue that requires treating on the day.
If you have access to the internet, the easiest way to contact the Urgent Care Unit is at https://florey.accurx.com/p/K83049. There is a brief form to fill in regarding your medical problem. This will enable the Urgent Care Team to appropriately triage your request and ensure the correct clinican deals with your concern.
If you are unable to use online access you are still able to call us on 01280 702436.
Patients for the Urgent Care Unit will receive a telephone call or a text message from one of our clinicians in the first instance. In most cases this will provide a solution to the problem but it may also involve signposting you to another service (eg pharmacy, physiotherapy, self care, routine GP appointment) if this is more appropriate. If we need to see you, we will arrange a face to face appointment at the surgery.
PLEASE NOTE THIS IS NOT A WALK-IN CLINIC
