We have set up this web site to help raise funds for Brackley Community Hospital 2020 Trust, in order to provide facilities that aren’t funded by the NHS. Anything funded by this charity would be available to all residents of Brackley and surrounding areas.
Ground has now been broken on this project with an estimated completion date of May 2020. This is an important project for the town and the surrounding area and will play a vital role in the provision of high quality healthcare for decades to come. The existing Brackley Health Centre, accommodating community staff and services, is inadequate for the needs of the population. The cottage hospital closed and there are no longer community beds in Brackley.
Brackley Medical Centre had a vision to develop this new facility working together with Northamptonshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust to provide modern healthcare facilities on one site. This is in line with NHS plans for Primary Care which aims to integrate community services with General Practice.
This exciting project comprises a three-storey medical centre and community hospital with GP Services and pharmacy at ground floor level, community services, a café, occupational health services at first floor level, 16 beds at second floor level, and ample free car parking spaces.
It has been confirmed that Northamptonshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust (NHFT) will provide these rehabilitations and short –term care beds, for those who require that extra level of support.
There will be accommodation for district nursing, health visitors, physiotherapy, podiatry and other community services to allow better team working and integration of primary care and community care.
The aim is to have some x-ray facilities, consultant out-reach clinics, and a minor injury unit.

Brackley Medical Centre
Northamptonshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust
Nene Clinical Commissioning Group
The two organisations associated with the former Brackley Cottage Hospital (i.e. League of Friends and Trustees).
