Welcome to the Practice

The doctors who make up the practice of Dr Mitchell & Partners look after the patients of Spinney Brook Medical Centre and Woodford Medical Centre. As well as serving those patients residing in Irthlingborough, the practice also covers the rural areas of Woodford, Little Addington and Great Addington with a Dispensing Surgery at Woodford. Both our medical centres are purpose-built, modern, airy buildings, in which we are able to offer a high standard of medical care in a friendly and professional manner. You can help us to achieve our aim by browsing this website, which contains useful information on how to get the best from your surgery.

Children's Safety

Parents please note: It is very dangerous for children to play around the medical centres, especially the car parks.


For security purposes some parts of the building (not consulting rooms) are covered by CCTV.

NHS England

The area served by Dr Mitchell and Partners is in the district covered by NHS England, the body responsible for Commissioning and ensuring you receive many of the health services you need. Details here.

Information from the Care Quality Commission

Our practice is inspected by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) to ensure we are meeting essential standards of quality and safety.

Practice News
Health Conditions A to Z


As you will be aware COVID-19 is still a serious on-going concern and residents living in Northamptonshire are presently at increased risk as there is a significant increase in numbers of positive cases in the county.

We all have a role to play in protecting ourselves and others by minimising social contact, keeping a safe distance from others, washing hands regularly and wearing face coverings in enclosed public spaces and on public transport.

We are asking for your continued support going forward as we continue to ensure the safety of our patients and staff. Please continue to book appointments over the telephone and do not come to the surgeries unless absolutely necessary or you have been invited to do so. We will continue to offer telephone or video appointments. Face to face appointments will only be offered if deemed necessary after a telephone consultation with a GP or a nurse.

We will continue to offer appointments for childhood immunisations, cervical smears, dressings, vaccinations and emergency treatment room procedures. If you need regular blood pressure monitoring we would ask that you consider using a home blood pressure monitor and ring the surgery with the results as necessary. We are able to text or email sick notes and can send blood test request forms electronically to phlebotomy services. This minimises the handling of paperwork and means you do not need to attend the surgery. If you are asked to attend the surgery please remember to wear a face covering, this does not need to be a surgical mask.

All our clinical staff are wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) appropriate to their role and have allocated time between appointments to ensure all treatments areas are thoroughly cleaned in accordance with infection control guidance for your safety and protection.

The waiting room chairs at Spinney Brook have been spaced to incorporate the recommended government distancing guidelines and only a limited number of patients will be allowed into the surgery at any one time. The Woodford surgery will continue to supply dispensing services only. Other services for our Woodford patients will continue to be offered from Spinney Brook for now. Please order repeat prescriptions on-line if possible (please call the surgery on 01933 650593 for more information). If you are unable to order on-line repeats please put prescription request in the post boxes at the surgery entrances or into the ‘Brown Box’ in the Spinney Brook lobby. Please note we do not routinely take prescription requests over the telephone.

We would, once again, like to thank all of our patients for their support, co-operation and understanding during this on-going difficult period.

The practice would like to thank the various advertisers who have helped to produce this Website. However, it must be pointed out that the accuracy of any statements cannot be warranted, nor any products or services advertised, be guaranteed or endorsed.
