NEW COMPUTER SYSTEM GOES LIVE TUES 17 MARCH 2015                         
We are changing our computer system on 17 March and apologise for any inconvenience caused by this change.

Appointments - We will have restricted appointment availability in the run-up to the changeover and for the first few days.  We will not be able to book appointments ahead until the new system is 'live'

Repeat prescriptions - Please avoid requesting repeat prescriptions between Wed 11 March and Mon 16 March - we can only deal with urgent requests during that time.

Online services - You will not be able to use our online services after Mon 16 March.  We will set up new online services later but unfortunately you will have to register again.

GP CHANGES                
Dr Shweta Gupta has left us at the end of her contract.  We have a new Registrar, Dr Rebecca Ellard who will be training with us for 6 months. 

The arrangements for Out-of-Hours cover have changed. If you require urgent medical assistance, which is not life threatening but cannot wait until the surgery re-opens, please dial 111.  Calls to the NHS111 service are free from both landlines and mobiles.  For a life threatening medical emergency dial 999.

We are proposing to make some improvements to the Great Chesterford branch to provide an extra consulting room on the ground floor and improve the dispensary
.  This will involve closing the branch for 2 days during April or May.

You are now able to order your repeat medication via this site. You first need to register for on-line services in person at reception. To order, just go to the repeat prescriptions link at the bottom of this page.

PATIENT PARTICIPATION GROUP                                 
We need some volunteers to join our Patient Participation Group to help us to ensure that we are providing the services you need from us. We would like to be able to contact patients to ask them questions about the surgery. If you can spare a little time please complete the form below or ask for one from reception

Jane Walker is a fully qualified Independent Prescriber and can treat many minor illnesses. Please ask for an appointment with her for any suspected infections etc
