Anyone registered with a GP Practice in Northampton.

Contact your GP practice in the usual way to request an appointment. If there is no appointment available for you at the practice they may offer you an appointment with the GP Extended Access Service, if this is right for you.

If your practice is closed and you need a GP please contact the Out-of-Hours service through NHS 111. They will also be able to book an appointment for you with the GP Extended Access Service. Please note that your consent will be required in order for an appointment to be booked for you.

If urgent care is required, please call ‘111’ for further advice. If your need is life threatening, please go to A&E or call 999.

For support with the management of minor ailments, please contact your local pharmacist or visit the NHS Choices website or call 111.

You will be seen by experienced Northampton GP’s and Nurses, but it is unlikely that you will be seen by your own GP or Nurse. If you would prefer to see your usual GP or Nurse, please book an appointment with your usual GP practice during their normal opening hours.

Your medical record will, with your consent, be available to the Health Care Professional that sees you to ensure that they have the information they need to give you the best possible care.

A summary of your appointment will be sent back to your own GP practice electronically to ensure that your record is up-to-date.
