It's a four day weekend at Easter, but if you need medical help that isn't an emergency or life-threatening, here is what's available locally.

The NHS have launched a new campaign this week focusing on how we, the public, can support the emergency services.
As you will be aware, the NHS is currently experiencing a spike in demand for all our health services, which is in turn putting pressures on acute and emergency services, as well as primary care. Please click NHS 111 Campaign and Poster to find out more about how we can all help our NHS.

Notice: Staff Training.... We will be closed from 12.30 pm on Monday 19th March 2018 for staff training.  We will reopen on Tuesday the 20th March, 2018 at 8.30 am.   If you require medical advice when we are closed, telephone 111.  In a life-threatening situation, telephone 999.

Adults in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough now have access to a mental health support website. The site, which has been successful in signposting children and young people to sources of support for their mental health, has been expanded to now provide local residents of all ages with a ‘one-stop shop’ for information on wellbeing and mental health.

The site provides a range of local and national information on looking after your mental health, self-help resources, and services that can help when you need more support.

Welcome The Burwell Surgery

We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us.

NEW: More GP Appointments released 

Until the end of March we are working with NHS England to offer extra GP appointments.  This is because we know that there are times you want to be able to see a GP at short notice.  We also know that over winter lots of people have seasonal illnesses which require more than a pharmacy but don’t need emergency treatment. 

The extra appointments will be available on Monday and Friday each week and are bookable on the day by ringing reception on the usual number. 

If you are not able to attend an appointment you have booked, for whatever reason, please let us know.  We can then offer that appointment to someone else that needs it.

Call NHS 111 if you urgently need medical help or advice but it's not a life-threatening situation. You can also call NHS 111 if you're not sure which NHS service you need.

Call 999 if someone is seriously ill or injured and their life is at risk.

Visit a walk-in centre, minor injuries unit or urgent care centre if you have a minor illness or injury (cuts, sprains or rashes) and it can't wait until your GP surgery is open.

Ask your local pharmacist for advice – your pharmacist can give you advice about many common minor illnesses, such as diarrhoea, minor infections, headaches, sore throats, or travel health.

Make an appointment with your GP if you are feeling unwell and it is not an emergency.

Serving You

Our dedicated team are here to treat those minor ailments that occur as well as providing specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues. The technology also means you can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription or cancel an appointment.

Partners in Care

Once registered, patients and healthcare professionals work together to ensure the most appropriate care is provided. This partnership philosophy extends even further and our active patient group exists to make sure that patient needs and the practice offering are always heading in the same direction.


We have parking facilities and easy access for disabled patients.
