Patient Reviews of Burton Latimer Medical Centre

By the early 1930s it was not unusual to find a queue of patients waiting outside the surgery in all weathers. Eventually it was possible for enough new houses to be built in the town, and so the practice moved to a new Health Centre on the south side of High Street near Churchill Way.

The new centre was designed to meet the needs of a growing population. It now contains doctors (general practitioners) and a pharmacy. It is also set up to send prescriptions electronically to patients’ chosen chemists. Patients should make sure their repeat medication is reviewed at least once a year, as this may need to be amended or stopped altogether. This will be highlighted on your repeat slip.

There is a wide range of independent businesses dotted around the town including a fantastic independent hair salon, ACOSMETICS, which is run by passionate and hard-working business owner Annabelle. She and her team offer an excellent range of aesthetic treatments and products to suit all skin types and ages. The town has a cricket club, based at Hall Field on the Kettering Road, and is home to non-league football team Burton Park Wanderers.
