Appointments

We see patients on an appointment basis only.  We do not offer a walk in service and do not provide any form of dental care (and will not see or treat any form of dental or gum problem).

Extended Access Hub

Practices in South Northamptonshire are working together to provide services that give patients better access to Primary Care. 

You can now book an appointment to see a GP or Nurse in the evening or at the weekend at one of our Extended Access Hubs, located in Weedon, Brackley or Towcester.  Please speak to Reception to find out more.

Appointments will be available up until 8pm Monday to Friday and during Bank Holidays too and are bookable through Reception.

To enable these services to work safely and effectively, clinicians seeing patients need to be able to access the patient health record.  This will only happen when you seek clinical care and the clinicians you see at the hub have the same levels of security and confidentiality as we do at Wootton Medical Centre.

Being able to access your health record means that clinical staff have important information about any relevant medical conditions and prescribed medication that could affect your treatment.  Your health record will be updated after your clinical care, just as it would be if you visited your own GP.

Cancellations & Reminders

Cancel an Appointment

In February 2020, 78 patients failed to attend or cancel their appointment at Wootton Medical Centre

Whilst 97% of patients kept their appointments, unfortunately the remainder failed to attend.  This represents 67 lost appointments.  Out of these lost appointments, 18 patients have not attended (or cancelled) at least 2 or more appointments within the last 12 months.

It is easy to cancel your appointment:

  • Respond with the word CANCEL to MJog text reminder;
  • Telephone 01604 709922;
  • Via email at wootton.medicalcentre@nhs.net;
  • Please ensure you cancel or rearrange any unwanted appointments.

If you DNA an appointment at Wootton Medical Centre, you risk being deducted as a patient from our patient list.

Thank you, for your co-operation.
