Noticeboard

The practice operates the NHS Zero tolerance policy.  Any one attending the surgery who abuses the GPs, staff or other patients; verbally, physically or in a threatening manner will be removed from the practice  list.


Our workers have the right to be treated with dignity and respect at all times. They should be able to do their jobs without being physically or verbally abused. Most people respect this. Thank you for being one of them.

When We Are Closed

If you require a doctor urgently when the surgery is closed please telephone NHS111 by dialing 111.

In the event of severe chest pain, breathlessness, collapse or heavy bleeding it is often best not to delay but dial '999' for an ambulance. It is also best to go to casualty in cases of poisoning (including overdose) or accidents.

Open 24/7, 365 days a year, NHS 111 connects patients to a team of fully trained call advisers who are supported by experienced nurses, paramedics, and GPs. 

They will ask questions to assess the symptoms, and give healthcare advice or direct the caller to a local NHS service. If necessary they can also call an ambulance or direct people straight to A&E. Calls to NHS 111 are free from a landline or mobile phone.

Pharmacies  

Pharmacies are open across the area during Easter; some are even open on Easter Sunday. Pharmacies can help with a range of things including aches, hangovers, colds, emergency contraception, and non-prescription medication. Opening times for pharmacies can be found HERE or you can dial 111.

Mental health – 111 option 2 

There is a new First Response Service (FRS) in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough which gives those in mental health crisis the opportunity to get access to help quickly, by calling NHS 111 and selecting option 2. 

The new service allows patients or carers to speak to specially-trained mental health staff who can provide advice, support, and signposting to other services. The service is available 24/7, 365 days a year.

Dental emergency and out-of-hours care

If you think you need urgent care, contact your usual dentist as some practices offer emergency dental slots and will provide care if clinically necessary. You can also call NHS 111, who can put you in touch with an urgent dental service.
