Our practice has the advantage of a branch surgery located in the village of Paulerspury just south of Towcester along the A5. For location click here Map to Paulerspury Surgery.
At Paulerspury Surgery a range of different services are provided in the local community for patients who live further away from the main surgery in Towcester.
- A GP is available at Paulerspury Surgery five days a week. GP appointments at Paulerspury are for pre-booked appointments only. Emergencies are handled by the Duty Doctor in Towcester see link: Emergencies.
- There is a NURSE available for blood pressure readings and phlebotomy (bloods) every Tuesday morning. For more lengthy or complex nurse appointments e.g. diabetic reviews, cervical smears, smoking cessation etc. patients need to book an appointment with a nurse at Towcester.
- FLU CLINICS are held seasonally every autumn and winter for patients who need a flu vaccination.
- The DISPENSARY provides patients with medication and a repeat prescription service – see below for further details.
Paulerspury Surgery is a Dispensary for medicines for patients who live more than one mile from a pharmacy. This means patients can order and collect their medication from the surgery instead of travelling for over a mile to get to the nearest pharmacist. It also offers a monthly Repeat Prescription Service – click on the link for further details. For patients living more than a mile from their nearest pharmacy who would like to take advantage of this service please speak to the staff at Paulerspury.
For patients who pay for prescriptions, payment must be made by cash or cheque as we don’t have a card payment facility at the surgery.
For patients who are exempt from prescription charges we are required to check proof of exemption so we ask that this is brought in when collecting medications.
Paulerspury Surgery is open from Monday to Friday but is closed during the middle of each day and on Wednesday afternoons. For full details about opening times for Paulerspury Surgery click on the link Opening Times.
