Visiting our practice? Please continue to wear a face covering and social distance
All of our COVID-19 secure measures remain in place and this will not change when Government guidance changes on 19 July 2021.
Patients are asked to continue to wear a face covering, unless they are exempt, and to follow social distancing when visiting our GP Practice.
This follows the national Infection Prevention Control (IPC) Guidance for all healthcare settings and will help to ensure the safety of our staff and patients at all times.
Please be kind to our staff
Staff at our practice are working extremely hard and doing their best to make sure patients are safe.
Over the last 18 months, the practice has been supporting the pandemic response and ensuring our patients are able to get their COVID-19 vaccinations, at the same time as continuing to deliver primary care services.
This has made our GP practice very busy and our staff have been working incredibly hard to keep services open for patients.
We’re aware patients may have experienced longer wait times on the phone or for their appointment, but we have been working hard to ensure you receive the right treatment from the right person at the right time.
We have increased the number of telephone and online appointments available, so our patients don’t always have to come to the practice. We also employ a range of highly trained staff, including doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and healthcare assistants who are able to deal with a range of medical conditions, which will help patients get treated sooner.
Whether your appointment is over the telephone, via an online video consultation, or face-to-face, patients will always receive the same high quality standard of care from our practice team.
So please, if you contact our practice, be kind.
Thank you for your patience and support.

COVID-19 Vaccination Programme
Patients are asked not to contact the surgery regarding COVID-19 Vaccinations.
The NHS will be starting to vaccinate the most at-risk priority groups, including over-80s and social care workers in local hospital hubs. The NHS will be starting to call people who fall into these priority groups over the coming weeks to book appointments for them.
You may have been called by Addenbrookes’ or Peterborough City Hospital to attend one of the first clinics at the hospital sites. You can choose to accept this appointment or wait until more clinics and locations are available in the community.
When more vaccines become available, the vaccines will be offered to other people at risk as soon as possible. Please don’t contact the NHS to seek a vaccine before then.
If you have not yet been approached about having the Covid-19 vaccine, please read the information: why you are being asked to wait. You can also find further information on the Covid-19 vaccine here.
Please wait to be invited for a Covid-19 vaccination. You may receive this via a letter or text message asking you to call us. Please be aware that we will never ask for payment for the Covid-19 vaccination and any text message requesting payment should be ignored.
Please continue to abide by all the social distancing, wearing of face masks and hand hygiene guidance, which will still save lives.
