INFLUENZA VACCINATIONS - NOW BOOKING                          If you are in one of the 'at risk' groups please make an appointment for your vaccination.

GP CHANGES                Following Dr Chris Loxley's departure from the practice, Dr Shweta Gupta has joined the team as a GP since completing her Registrar post with us. Dr Alice Hodkinson has also increased her hours. We wish Dr Loxley well in his new venture. 

OUT-OF-HOURS                     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.

GREAT CHESTERFORD BRANCH CLOSED FRIDAY PM Due to Government funding cuts, we will no longer be able to keep both our branches open on Friday afternoons.  With effect from 1 April 2014, our Great Chesterford branch will be closed on Friday afternoons. Please arrange to collect any dispensed medication by 1.00pm on Fridays.  Borough Lane Surgery will still be open and phone calls will be transferred automatically.

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.
