Greens Norton and Weedon Medical Practice
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.

FRIENDS and FAMILY TEST
The Friends and Family Test is a feedback method managed by NHS England which all GP practices must undertake by the 1st December 2014. It gives people who use NHS services the opportunity to comment on their experience. It is not a traditional one-off survey but a continuous feedback between patients and the practice.
There will also be an opportunity to leave comments on the bottom of the form. The NHS friends and family test (FFT) is an important opportunity for you to provide feedback on the care and treatment you receive and to improve services.
SMS APPOINTMENT REMINDERS
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 email@example.com 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.

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 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
