You may make an appointment to be seen up to 4 weeks ahead in person, by telephoning during surgery hours or booking on-line (same process as ordering prescriptions on line, detailed below). All patients now have a named GP, however you can see whichever doctor you choose. If you are unable to keep an appointment, please let us know.

You will receive a list of your repeat prescriptions. When re-ordering medication, tick the items you require and either post or deliver the slip to the surgery. We are also happy to receive requests for repeat medication by fax, but please avoid telephoning orders if at all possible.
Please only order the medication you need.
You can now order your repeat prescriptions on line. Please speak to a receptionist or dispenser and they will organise your password.

We can dispense medicines for most villages, except Kimbolton, Stonely and a few outlying villages. If you live in one of these you will be given a prescription to take to a chemist. We deliver medicines to some villages. Please ask our dispensers for details.
Telephoning your Doctor
If you wish to speak to a doctor on the telephone you will be asked for your telephone number and the doctor will call you back, unless you would like to call at another time.
If you are too ill to come to the surgery, a home visit can be arranged by telephoning the surgery, preferably before 10.00am. Please be prepared to give details to our receptionist as this will help us to see the most urgent cases first.
