Welcome to
Greens Norton and Weedon Medical Practice

Surgery

Greens Norton Medical Centre and Upper Nene Village Practice are two long established rural dispensing practices which merged in April 2010 to form Greens Norton and Weedon Medical Practice. The new combined practice operates from modern purpose-built premises on two sites, one in Greens Norton and the other in Weedon. Our aim is to provide high quality medical care in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere and promote healthy living with an emphasis on disease prevention.

The practice covers a wide area and the villages we serve are listed on our map page. If you live more than a mile from a pharmacy, both Greens Norton and Weedon dispensaries can dispense medicines to you.

Trained staff will answer your call. You may be given telephone advice, asked to attend an emergency surgery or visited at home depending upon the severity of your problem.

Non-urgent appointments can be made and repeat prescriptions ordered online by using a service called SystmOnline via the following link:

  Practice News and Notices

 NEWS FROM GREENS NORTON MEDICAL CENTRE

We are very sorry to announce there are no appointments to see Dr Mike Greenhalgh, due to ill-health.

Many of you will be aware that three years ago Dr Mike was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease and has coped with this amazingly. Last year he and sixteen members of his family and friends cycled from Greens Norton to Paris to raise funds and awareness of Parkinson's and raised an astonishing £39,000.

On Saturday 10th May colleagues from the surgery will be joining Dr Jill Greenhalgh's team to walk the London Moonwalk to raise funds for breast cancer - Dr Jill gathered a team of colleagues together to mark her retirement from General Practice in March of this year.

Our team of eight is now a team of nine - Dr Mike will be joining us - here is a link to his fundraising page:

SMS Texting

The Practice has begun sending appointment reminders by SMS messaging to your mobile phone. Please get in touch with either Greens Norton or Weedon reception or email gnwmpadmin@nhs.net if you DO NOT wish to be reminded of future appointments by receiving an SMS text reminder. Please make sure we have your up to date contact details at all times.

With the steep rise in postage costs we are looking at alternative methods of contact for sending appointments to those patients on regular recall for things such as diabetic reviews and asthma checks. We are therefore updating contact details with email addresses - please contact gnwmpadmin@nhs.net to update your details. Please note that emails should not contain any clinical information and it is your responsibility to ensure your email is secure.

Summary Care Records - Your emergency care summary

For more information on the Summary Care Records and your choices, visit www.northamptonshire.nhs.uk/scr or www.nhscarerecords.nhs.uk or your local Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS) www.pals.nhs.uk or telephone the dedicated NHS Summary Care Record Information Line on 0300 123 3020 where an operator will be available to answer any queries you may have.

NHS 111

 NHS 111 enables you to access local NHS healthcare services. The service is staffed by a team of fully trained advisers, supported by experienced nurses. They will ask questions to assess your symptoms, then give you the healthcare advice you need or direct you to the local service that can help you best. That could be A&E, an out-of-hours doctor, an urgent care centre or a walk-in centre, a community nurse, an emergency dentist or a late-opening chemist.

You should use the NHS 111 service if you urgently need medical help or advice but it's not a life-threatening situation. For example:
  • you need medical help fast but it's not a 999 emergency
  • you think you need to go to A&E or need another NHS urgent care service
  • you don't know who to call or you don't have a GP to call
  • you need health information or reassurance about what to do next
If NHS 111 advisers think you need an ambulance, they will immediately arrange for one to be sent to you.
The service is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and calls are free from a landline. For less urgent health needs, contact your GP or local pharmacist in the usual way.
For immediate, life-threatening emergencies, continue to call 999.
