The Urgent Care Unit Team
The Urgent Care Unit is staffed by our team of Advanced Care Practitioners, all of whom have a prescribing qualification.
WALK IN ONLY service for urgent, on the day appointments at Brackley Medical Centre.
If you have a new, urgent issue that needs an on the day appointment you will no longer need to call the surgery.
Please come down to BMC between Monday – Friday, 9.00-11.00 and 14.30-16.30.
You will be seen by one of our Urgent Care Unit Clinicians. Please note there may be a wait and patients may not be seen in the order they arrive. If your issue is not new or urgent you may wait, but the Clinician may ask you to rebook a routine appointment.
Please bear with us as we make these changes which we will keep under review. Please treat our staff with respect.
