Welcome to the NPMC and NPMC @ Willen Online
"Our strategic mission is to provide all patients with reliable, accessible, high quality, comprehensive healthcare, continuing to offer extended services and considering opportunities that present themselves in order to improve our care within the constraints of the local health economy"
The doctors and staff at the NPMC are proud to offer the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare. We run many clinics for the management of long term conditions such as asthma and diabetes and offer a wide variety of other medical services including antenatal, postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and travel clinics.
If you would like to see any further improvements, please let us know. In addition to everything you need to know about the practice you will also find a wealth of health-related information in the menu on the right hand side. Please have a look around and do send us some feedback if you like.
FLU CLINICS 2017
Adults over 18 years in an at risk group can book into these clinics now.
Patients with a BMI of 40 plus - morbidly obese are entitled to a free flu vaccine and also school year 4.
Children’s flus (2 years to 18 years in an at risk group) – would be entitled to nasal flu – no needles!!
We will only be vaccinating 2 and 3 year olds in the Practice. They can be seen in the November Clinic as we cannot guarantee the nasal flu vaccine being delivered from NHS England in time for the first clinic.
Please note all children between age 2 years and 18 years in an at risk group, will be offered the nasal flu unless there is a medical contraindication.
Patients who do not fall into risk groups
They can receive vaccines privately via a pharmacy or one of the larger supermarkets - costs do vary.

Please be aware it is the patient’s responsibility to ensure repeat prescriptions are ordered on time. You can order your prescription up to 10 days before it is due.
Our doctors are very busy and cannot be interrupted to produce prescriptions urgently because the request has come in late.
When we receive a repeat prescription request, we shall have your prescription ready within 48 hours if collecting from the surgery or 72 hours if your prescription is to be sent to the pharmacist.
All electronic prescriptions will be with the pharmacist within 48 hours.
In most cases, if you are not able to take your regular medication for 48 hours this will not impact on your health, but you can avoid this interruption in you medication by ordering on time.
It is our policy not to order medication over the phone; we only take requests over the phone for prescriptions from housebound patients and we request these phone calls come in after 9.30am.
All urine samples MUST be received at Reception by 12 midday - Monday to Friday
Protected Learning Time
The practice will be closed on Thursday 19th October 2017 from 1.30pm to 6.30pm for protected learning time.
For test results please call after 10.30am
Test results can now be viewed on-line, if you do not have an on-line password please come into the medical centre with proof of identity such as a passport or driving licence and we shall set up a password for you.
You will then be able to book and cancel doctor’s appointments, order medication, contact the medical centre via a confidential messaging system, and view your detailed coded medical record including your test results.
We are a training practice and have a GP registrar working with us undertaking their advance training in General Practice. Registrars are qualified doctors who have had considerable hospital experience and generally stay with us for up to 12 months.
We also have medical students, junior doctors and nurses undergoing training with us from time to time.
Sometimes patients ask if we can provide a chaperone to accompany them if they are having an examination with their GP.
This notice is to advise patients we can provide that service.
If you would like a chaperone, please ask your GP.
You can now book appointments at either Newport Pagnell Medical Centre or NPMC at Willen - please ensure you check the 'Location' of the GP clinic when booking appointments.
