PLEASE NOTE WE DO NOT GIVE PRIVATE MENINGITIS B VACCINATION.

Out of hours emergencies are now triaged by the NHS 111 service who will arrange appropriate further care/advice. Out of hours please ‘phone 111, or the surgery on 01223 870250 and you will be transferred automatically.  If you need immediate urgent medical help, phone 999.

Community Nurses

The community nurses are based at Cambourne and are available to help with nursing house-bound patients. They can be contacted on (01223) 726469. If you are not truly housebound then it is likely you will be asked to organise nursing care via an appointment at the Surgery with one of our Practice Nurses.

Community Psychiatric Nursing. A referral to the community psychiatric team can be made through the doctor. The team triage all referrals and will make their own decisions about whether a doctor, CPN or support worker will be the most appropriate person to see. Bear in mind that they are underfunded, overstretched and occasionally might seem to have a threshold for engagement that may make one wonder if mental health is really a priority. We know it is, so please see a GP initially and we will do our best to ensure you get the help you need; short or long term.

Attached Staff

Dietitian; referrals are available for weight loss, dietary advice, diabetes. Please book to see a practice nurse or doctor in the first instance.

Cardiac Nurse; community heart failure nurses are accessed via a GP.

Counsellor; see the bottom of our Clinics and Services link. We do not have an in house counsellor and options on the NHS are geared towards more severe problems. A GP appointment to discuss options and suggest avenues for help is probably the best option if you are unsure what to do or who to see.

Midwife; Ros Greensmith is our Community Midwife- she is very sensible, experienced and a true asset. The midwives have recently been organised into teams (ours is the 'Rose' team, based at Bassingbourn). Whilst this may help sort out manpower problems it occasionally leaves Ros covering other shifts and practices so you may find another of the team midwives is running the clinic on Tuesdays.
