For all patients, please be aware the GP Surgeries are OPEN from 8am - 6.30pm - Monday-Friday.
ACCESS TO GP SURGERY: Due to Covid-19 the front door is locked for some of the day. The front door is mainly unlocked if we are expecting a patient to attend for an appointment. Please do not attend the GP Surgery unless you have been invited down by a member of staff. All queries are dealt with over the phone, however if you do not have access to a phone or you are hard of hearing, a member of staff will be happy to assist you in person on site. When you arrive at the GP Surgery please knock on the front door and a member of staff will let you in.
UPON YOUR ARRIVAL: The Nurse will take your temperature in the waiting area. You will be asked to use the hand gel provided. We have a one way system in place, please enter the building through the front door and exit via the back.
DELIVERIES: If you are a delivery driver and the front door is locked, we ask can you please knock on the front door and a member of staff will assist you.
COLLECTIONS/DROP OFF'S: We are trying to avoid as much face to face contact as possible to keep both patients and staff safe; therefore we are sending as much paperwork as we can electronically. We ask that if you are dropping anything off to the GP Surgery and you do not need to speak with a member of staff, please post the item through the letterbox. If you are collecting something, please contact reception first. This is to avoid having too many patients on site at one time as we are a small Practice.
PRESCRIPTIONS: We ask patients if they can, to sign up to our online services if not done so already. You can then request your medication online. Once actioned, this will then be sent electronically to your nominated pharmacy. For those who do not have a device to access online services, please post your prescription request through our letterbox. Please be aware we will still not be taking prescription requests over the phone.
APPOINTMENTS: Due to the coronavirus outbreak, how you contact us will be different at the moment. This is to limit face-to-face contact whenever possible and help stop the spread of coronavirus.
We are open and if you need to see your GP, please ring us on 01933 413888 (Irchester) or 01933 682203 (Summerlee) or visit our website – our opening hours are 8am - 6.30pm.
You can also call NHS 111. Please do not come to the surgery unless you have an appointment.
If you are waiting for a check-up, please be assured we will be in touch.
Appointments are being delivered face-to-face, online and over the telephone. If you are asked to come into the surgery for a face-to-face appointment, please remember to wear a face covering. Measures are in place to keep you safe from infection during your visit to the surgery.
We ask ALL staff, patients and visitors to wear a face mask or covering at all times when visiting the GP Surgeries.

Leaflets regarding Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes and Covid-19:
At Irchester Surgery & Summerlee Medical Centre we aim to provide a high quality service that is available to all patients.
We are two separate surgeries run by the same lead GP. Irchester Surgery is a small surgery based in the middle of Irchester. We are located between Rushden and Wellingborough. Dr Pasquali took over Irchester Surgery in 2004. Summerlee Medical Centre is again a small surgery based in the middle of Finedon.
