Out of hours emergencies are the responsibility of NHS 111 who will arrange appropriate further care/advice.  For the Out of hours service please ‘phone 111. If you need immediate urgent medical help, phone 999. GP out of hours appointments have moved from their old base in Chesterton and are now on the Addenbrookes site (Clinic 9, next to A&E).

Community Nurses

The community nurses are based at Sawston Health Centre and are available to help with nursing house-bound patients. They can be contacted on 0330 726 0077. 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 GP. 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.

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 are lucky to have Mandy Thornton who is offering her services at no cost to our patients for up to 6 sessions. Referrals to her are via your GP. She is also available for private work should this be an option.

Midwife; The midwives have been organised into teams (ours is the 'Rose' team, based at Bassingbourn). They run a clinic on Tuesday afternoons at the surgery and coordinate appointments themselves. Tel: 01223 349316
