Extended Access in Luton - Offering Routine Appointments through a Luton wide Extended Access service for Health Concerns
The Luton Extended Access Service will be available from 4th September 2018 for all Luton patients to book routine appointments with a GP, Practice Nurse or Healthcare Assistant through Bramingham Park Medical Centre. This service will operate Monday to Friday evenings from 18:00 – 21:00 and Saturday and Sunday mornings from 08:30 - 14:30 at two local GP Practices. Patients will be offered to attend Medici Medical Centre or Gardenia Surgery.
In addition to this, we are working with our Network to provide additional appointments outside of normal working hours. We are pleased to inform you that we have further clinics held at Blenheim Medical Centre.
Patients with Chronic Disease Management such as Asthma, COPD, Diabetes, Hypertension and Rheumatoid Arthritis may attend these clinics to have reviews. The clinicians in this service will have full access to your GP records from the surgery.
For more information regarding the Extended Access service or to book an appointment please contact our reception team in person or on the phone. Appointments for the Luton Extended Access service cannot be booked online.
We are pleased to announce that we are now offering same day online booking for GP appointments. Appointments will be released at 7:30am for the same day. We simply ask that you use these appointments wisely for urgent issues.

Luton Cancer Questionnaire
Luton Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is responsible for organising and purchasing NHS funded healthcare for the people of Luton. The CCG would like to understand why local residents are currently choosing to take part in cancer screening or not. We would appreciate it if you could spare a few minutes to complete this short questionnaire.

Bramingham Park is Dementia Friendly
We are proud to have registered with the Dementia Action Alliance and be recognised as a ‘Dementia Friend’. Our profile can be seen HERE.
Named Accountable GP for All Patients
All patients have a ‘named GP’ who is responsible for that patient’s overall care. Patients can contact the practice if they wish to know who this is and if they have a preference as to which GP this is, the practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate this request.
In day-to-day reality, who the named GP is makes little difference. Patients are always able to choose to see any doctor they wish and if ‘Dr X’ is a patient’s named doctor this DOES NOT MEAN that patient can ONLY SEE ‘Dr X’. Please also note that we have between 5,500 and 6,000 patients on our practice register. It is not practically possible for any one doctor to have an unfair balance of responsibility and so it may not always be possible to accommodate the requests for specific named GP’s but all reasonable efforts will be made to accommodate requests.
