The Health Centre is the branch surgery linked to Cornford House Surgery on Cherry Hinton Road. The Practice is attached to Cambridgeshire Primary Care Trust.
The Health Centre is exactly three miles from the main site and is fully staffed and computerised with a link to the main surgery.
The Health Centre houses the GP Practice and, in addition, a variety of community clinics hold sessions at the site.
The Practice strives to provide a high standard of care in a warm and friendly environment, using the latest developments and technology.
We have a car park at the rear of the Health Centre and wheelchair access is available from both the street and the car park by way of automatic and power assisted doors.
The Health Centre is open 08:15 to 18:00 Monday to Friday and the reception is staffed throughout this time.
We sometimes need to switch the phones over to Cornford House at lunchtime (12:30-14:00) to enable staff to take a break Please be assured that all phone calls will be answered as quickly as possible and that the staff at both sites are trained to deal with any emergency which may arise.
Out of Hours cover
Urgent Care Cambridgeshire provide full cover overnight, at weekends and on Bank Holidays. They can be contacted on 0330 123 9131. This is also the number on the answerphone message when we are closed.
We have a computerised appointments system and can offer both pre-bookable appointments and same day appointments. We usually have sessions on the computer up to four weeks in advance.
Patients who are unable to get to the Health Centre and need a home visit are asked to let us know by 10:30am so that we can plan the doctors visit schedules.
Appointments with the practice nurse can be booked up to four weeks ahead.
Our trained nurses are supported by two Health Care Assistants and our receptionists may ask the reason for your appointment to ensure that you are offered an appointment with the most appropriate member of staff.
We are a training Practice and have close links with the Medical School at Addenbrookes. We take medical students for a placement at various stages of their medical training and have a GP Registrar placed with us. The Registrar is a fully qualified doctor undertaking additional training prior to qualifying as a GP.
