Urgent Care Unit
Accessing the 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
