As part of our Practice's contract with the NHS, every patient has to be informed as to who their named GP is. However, please be aware that this does not necessarily mean you will always see that particular GP as it will be dependent on appointment availability.
Patients from our Surgery are now able to book routine appointments to be seen by doctors, nurses and healthcare assistants in the evenings and at weekends in Extended Access - a new service provided by West Cambs Federation.
This service is available to all patients in this area seven days a week in sessions at four clinics -
Acorn Surgery, Oak Drive, Huntingdon.
Buckden Surgery, Mayfield. Buckden.
Cornerstone Surgery, Elwyn Road, March.
Cromwell Place Surgery, Cromwell Place, St. Ives.
You can make an appointment at any of the sites - not just the one nearest to your home.
To book an appointment contact us on 01487 208044 and we will book your appointment for you.
Private Flu Vaccinations, 2018
Due to circumstances beyond the Surgery's control, it will not be possible to offer flu vaccinations to those patients who are not specifically classed "at risk" as defined by the Government..
However, vaccinations may be made available on a private basis to non-"at risk" patients at a charge of £8 each. This charge will need to be paid in advance of the relevant appointment.
Please contact the Surgery on 01487 208044 to make the necessary arrangements.
Don’t swallow up your NHS - use it wisely
Every time you visit your GP it costs the NHS £45*
You can treat minor illnesses such as colds and coughs, sore throats, and upset stomachs easily at home with medicines, which you can easily buy at low cost from your local pharmacy.
So be prepared and stock up on essentials today:
- pain relief (paracetamol)
- cough and sore throat remedies
- first aid kit
- upset stomach treatment
- rehydration treatment
- heartburn and indigestion treatment.
Having these essentials at hand will not only save you time and help you to feel better quicker, but help save the NHS much needed resources.
Your local pharmacist can also offer you advice and guidance on the best treatment for you - no appointment needed. Pharmacists are available on every High Street and in Supermarkets, with many open evenings and weekends.
* £45 is the average cost for GP consultant time, cost of the medication, and dispensing fee.
We have made additional blood test appointments available for patients at this practice. These additional appointments will be available on a Tuesday morning with one of our Phlebotomists and are bookable by ringing Reception on the usual number (01487 208044) or calling in at the Surgery.
If you are not able to attend an appointment you have booked, for whatever reason, please let us know. We can then offer that appointment to someone else who needs it.
Due to a national shortage, we are currently unable to provide any travel vaccinations. This information will be updated as soon as there is further news available. In the meantime, please contact MASTA - www.masta-travel-health.com
