Are you working from home, part-time or recently retired? Could you spare a few hours a week to help people in YOUR community? We urgently need more volunteer drivers in Deanshanger to take residents to their health and wellbeing appointments. We have lots of members in the village and as appointments are beginning to start up again we need more drivers to help so we don't rely on volunteers from elsewhere. Mileage is reimbursed, hours are flexible and organised weekly in advance. Send us a message or visit our website for more details. https://www.towcesterareadoor2door.com/


We are part of the Blue PCN – a collection of practices in the local area that are delivering the vaccine from a central point – Kings Heath in Northampton.

We are now working to government guidance vaccinating our 40 - 49 and 30 - 39 years age groups. The limiting factor is the supply of vaccinations due to government logistics.

A new system has been introduced where we you will be invited to book an appointment by text for those with a mobile number. If you do not have a mobile number you will receive a phone call from Blue PCN to invite you to book an appointment.  PLEASE DO NOT CALL THE PRACTICE – Wait for your text or call. Please note you will never be asked to provide any financial details.

COVID 19 Vaccination – Suspicious Calls and Text Messages

It is advised to protect yourself and your family members from fraud and criminals, remember the following points.

  • The vaccine is only available on the NHS and is free to people in priority groups, and the NHS will contact patients when it is your turn. You will not be asked to pay for the vaccine.
  • The NHS will never ask you to press a button on your keypad or send a text to confirm you want the vaccine, and never ask for payment or for your bank details.
  • The NHS are not making house calls to deliver or discuss the vaccine.

If you or your patients receive a call which is believed to be fraudulent, hang up. If you believe you have been the victim of fraud or identity theft you should report this directly to Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040. Where the victim is vulnerable, and particularly if you are worried that someone has or might come to your house, report it to the Police online or by calling 101.

Important Information

The government have updated their guidance to wear face covering in public where social distancing isn’t possible and where you will come into contact with people you do not normally meet.

Whilst we have spaced out the waiting room to enable social distancing and are asking patients where possible to remain in their cars prior to appointments, we are also asking ALL patients attending the practice to wear a face covering to help protect themselves and others.

To find out how to wear and make a cloth face mask visit https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/how-to-wear-and-make-a-cloth-face-covering/how-to-wear-and-make-a-cloth-face-covering

Face coverings should not be used by children under the age of 3 or those who may find it difficult to manage them correctly. For example, primary age children unassisted, or those with respiratory conditions.

If you have any symptoms of COVID 19 PLEASE DO NOT VISIT THE PRACTICE.

Order your Repeat Prescription through the NHS App!

During this time, we are asking patients to use our Online Services as much as possible. We would therefore ask that you use the NHS App to order your Repeat Prescriptions.

With the ongoing Covid pandemic Bugbrooke Medical Practice continues to act responsibly to reduce virus transmission and ensure patient and staff safety by minimising surgery attendance. We will arrange to see urgent and serious medical problems whilst non-urgent complaints and queries will be dealt with by phone. For medication queries and sick note you are able to use the engage consult service and telephone consultations can be booked online each day. Thank you for your cooperation.

COVID 19 – Patient Notice

Whilst we have spaced out the waiting room to enable social distancing and are asking patients where possible to remain in their cars prior to appointments, we are also asking ALL patients attending the practice to wear a face covering to help protect themselves and others.

Many thanks.

Online booking of face to face online appointments has been suspended on advice from NHS England. This is because we need to triage all appointments to mitigate the risks associated with potentially infected patients attending the Practice.

To book an appointment please telephone the surgery.

Helpline for Coronavirus

A support line has been launched to support the most vulnerable people in Northamptonshire during the coronavirus crisis.

The helpline, which will be managed by the Customer Service Centre at Northamptonshire County Council, went live on Tuesday 31st March.

It allows those who cannot leave their homes under current restrictions and those who are self-isolating and have nobody to call upon for help to request support in getting access to food, prescriptions and other vital services that they require.  It means that care can be provided to those that really need help.  It applies to those with existing health conditions, those who are pregnant or those aged 70 and above.

Each call to the helpline will be triaged so that individuals receive the care and support that is appropriate to their needs.

The Community Resilience Service will co-ordinate requests for help in conjunction with the district and borough councils, mapping those requests by area and linking them up with local community groups, volunteers and voluntary organisations who have pledged their support.

Those requiring help are asked to call the support line on 0300 126 1000 (option 5).


Volunteer to help those in need - Coronavirus


Please remember to update the surgery with your correct contact details to keep your records up to date, particularly your mobile number as we use this to send you appointment reminders
