Online Services

GP online services allow you to access a range of services via your computer, mobile or tablet. Once you have signed up, you will be able to:

  • book telephone callbacks or cancel appointments online
  • renew or order repeat prescriptions online
  • view parts of your GP record, including information about medication, allergies, vaccinations, previous illnesses and test results

You can still contact the practice by phone or in person, this is just another option, which other patients have found is more convenient and saves them time. More information including “how to” leaflets and videos of patients and why they are using GP online services are available at www.nhs.uk/gponlineservices

Welcome to Brook Medical Centre Online

 Our Mission Statement:

"To help you to be well for the longest time and to preserve your dignity at life’s end


NEW STAFF

We are delighted to welcome Dr  Jolaoso to our team as a new GP. She has been recruited to replace Dr Byrne who will be retiring in November. Her normal working days will be Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. 


Covid-19

Coronavirus

For the period 12th October until 28th October the surgery will be operating with very much reduced capacity as all our nursing staff are having to isolate following exposure to Covid-19. We are only able to offer telephone consultations for urgent problems. All blood tests, vaccinations and dressing services are cancelled.

FACE MASKS 

If you cannot wear a face mask in public areas for medical reasons you DO NOT need to have a letter from a GP. It is okay for you to explain your reasons to anyone who asks.

To stop the spread of COVID-19

The doors to the surgery are closed. We wish to avoid patients having to come to the surgery as much as possible and most queries can be dealt with via the phone or using one of the electronic systems available.

If it is necessary for you to come to the surgery we can accept your prescription requests and forms though the Red Box in the foyer, if you have no other way of getting them to us eg. via email. 

If you have to visit the surgery please use the intercom in the foyer to contact a receptionist.

All appointments will initially be over the phone, if a clinician feels you need to be seen they will arrange for you to attend the surgery. 

Please do not attend the surgery for an appointment unless instructed to by a clinician. If you do have to come into the surgery you will be expected to wear a face covering or mask.

This to protect you, and our staff, so that we can continue to offer advice and healthcare. 

Residents of Northampton, Corby, Kettering and Wellingborough are being urged to take additional action as the number of cases has risen above the national rate.

Helpful links and Information about COVID-19 (Coronavirus)


Flu vaccinations:

We will be starting our flu vaccinations on the 14th September this year. The first two weeks will be be for over 65s only followed by those at risk patients eligible for a vaccination from 28th September.

Please note that people in the 50-64-year old age group will not be vaccinated until later in the year, providing there is sufficient vaccine, and no appointments will be offered for this age group until the Government advise that vaccine is available.. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first.  If you are 50-64 and you are in one of the other groups which is eligible for the flu vaccination, for example you have a health condition which puts you at risk from the flu, you will be invited earlier


We have been looking at how we can improve access to Practice services; DoctorLink is our new online service where you can access advice on line.
