New Medicines Service scheme


Patients at Brackley Medical Centre can now take advantage of the NHS funded New Medicine Service through their local community pharmacy. The service is designed to help patients find out more about a new medicine that they’ve been prescribed and is the perfect opportunity to nip any problems including swallowing difficulties, missed doses and side effects in the bud. Through just a simple phone call the service can support patients by increasing their understanding about their new medication and condition, helping to maximise the benefit from their treatment.


The service is offered for new medicines for the following long term conditions:

  • Asthma & COPD
  • Type 2 Diabetes
  • Anti-Platelet / Anti-coagulation Therapy
  • Hypertension


To speak to one of the Clinical Pharmacists at they surgery please call 01280 702436


Midwife appointments will be held at the Washington House Site on a Tuesday and the Brackley Health Centre site on a Friday.  Your midwife or a receptionist will guide you accordingly but it is a midwifes preference and recommendation that you stick to one or the other and maintain consistency with your midwife. Ginny Gray will cover the Tuesday clinic and Ali Hicks will cover the Friday clinic.

Antenatal Clinics are held at the Surgery. Doctors look after their own maternity patients with the midwife and/or consultant. Women can choose where they give birth. Patients may deliver at home or at any of the various local hospitals. A community midwife is attached to Brackley Medical Centre and will give both antenatal and postnatal care to expectant mothers.

If you urgently need to contact the midwife, please call the Day Assessment Unit – tel 01295 229779.

Emergency contraception is provided on request at Reception, where you will be referred immediately to the Practice Nurse. The Surgery is also part of the Emergency Contraception Card Scheme for young people, who need only show their card to be shown through to the Practice Nurse.

Flu Clinics

Our Practice Nurses and District Nurse run flu injection sessions starting in October of each year. In accordance with Department of Health guidelines, we recommend an influenza injection and a pneumococcal injection for all those aged 65 and over. Both injections are also recommended for those or with the following medical conditions: asthma, diabetes, heart disease, and lung or kidney disease. The influenza injections needs to be repeated each year, but only one pneumococcal injection is needed for extended cover in most cases.

Flu Clinic Dates - for 2020.

Our Flu clinics this year are being held in the car park of our new building.  Each clinic is for one age range only and these are for patients with pre-booked appointments only. Due to the high uptake this year, we have a waiting list for patients who haven't yet managed to get booked into a clinic. Please call the surgery and ask to be added to the waiting list and you will then be contacted once more vaccines arrive and further clinics are built.

Health Promotion

The aim of promoting health is to try and identify risk factors at an early stage and prevent them from causing ill health. For this reason we will ask about drinking and smoking habits and measure your blood pressure and weight from time to time. This is especially wise in people with a family history of heart disease, diabetes or stroke.

Registration Medical

All new patients are asked to attend a simple and quick medical upon registering. Some form of ID will be required on registration, normally a driving licence and a utility bill to confirm address.

Travel Immunisation

We are a Yellow Fever Vaccination Centre and are available to offer comprehensive health-related travel and immunisation advice. If you would like to research what is needed before attending the clinic the following site is very useful:

Non-NHS Services

Medical examinations for special purposes, such as fitness to travel, pre-employment, insurance, diving, and HGV licenses are normally done at 11.30am Monday - Friday.

An appointment can be made through Reception. A fee will be charged as these services are not covered by the NHS.

If you require annual medical services, e.g. HGV medical, please book ahead in anticipation of that review. We advise you do not wait until you are in receipt of the paperwork as this generally gets set last minute leaving little or no booking capacity to meet your needs. This type of appointment is lengthy and uses both a GP and a Health Care Assistant.

Thank you for your co-operation.
