2021 has been a difficult year, but numerous services have continued to come onstream at the new medical facility in Brackley. Large sums of money will be taken from our funds early next year as various major pieces of equipment are installed and activated.

The second -floor terrace at the new Brackley Community Hospital overlooks Turweston Road and has been provided with outdoor furniture, as shown in the pictures, throug the kind generosity of the League of Friends of Brackley Cottage Hospital which hopes to continue to provide amenities for inpatients at the new facility.

 

Overcoming delays caused by the Covid19 Pandemic, the long awaited health and care facility was able to open in the autumn of 2020 with the first rehabilitation patients being admitted in the spring of 2021.  The design of the facility has supported safe working arrangements during this period with room layouts and rooms sizes maintaining social distancing.  Core services (GP appointments, Podiatry, Physiotherapy, Children’s Speech & Language Therapy, Community Nursing and 0 – 19 team base) previously provided in the Brackley Health Centre and Washington House Surgery smoothly moved in and are all now operating from the new venue. 

   

RESIDENTS BENEFIT FROM LOCAL OUTPATIENT SERVICES   

Less than nine months after it opened, Brackley Medical Centre & Community Hospital is now hosting a number of outpatient clinics which means that patients are able to access services on their doorstep rather than having to travel to Oxford, Banbury or Northampton.
