We are a central Peterborough General Practice looking after 17,000 Patients.
We are a teaching practice and teach medical students from Imperial College and Cambridge University as well as training doctors preparing to be hospital specialists and General Practitioners.
The purpose of this site is to provide information to our current patients, future patients and people seeking information about our services.
If you are looking for information on how to register with our Practice to allow us to care for you please look at this section.
We host other services that deliver endoscopy, colonoscopy, ultrasound scanning and aortic aneurysm clinics. If you are looking for information regarding these services please click on the relevant section.
We offer advanced access to any of our 17,000 patients who wish to see a Doctor between 8:30am and 10:30am. This means that patients can walk in to the surgery at this time and will be seen in the surgery by a clinician without an appointment, Monday to Friday.
We offer a full general practice service including health promotion clinics for long-term conditions: diabetes, asthma, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), heart disease and high blood pressure. We also offer minor surgical procedures on site to remove skin lesions and insert and remove contraceptive devices. Please see this section for more details.
Afternoon appointments are available from 4pm - 6pm daily except for Thursday when the surgery has a half day.
We promote and would like all of our patients to take an active interest in maintaining their own health as far as possible with assurance that expert help and advice will be available when necessary at both primary and secondary care levels.
We have a car park located at the rear of the surgery with a capacity for around 160 car spaces. This is accessed from Lincoln Road between the Car sales site and the community church on Lincoln Road just beyond the triangle. Please see the maps on this page for further orientation.
The surgery is centrally located within easy reach of bus routes and there is a chemist close to the surgery.
The premises have been extended and modernised to provide comprehensive facilities for patients. The surgery is fully computerised and linked electronically to the hospital and community services.
We are looking to further develop our services and care and are keen on your suggestions. Please see the "Patient Participation Group" section for further information.
Please note the dental facilities are currently in development and are due to open in due course, we will keep you updated via the website as more information is available.
We changed our computer system from a system that we have used for 20 years. The system should help us better communicate with our colleagues and patients. Please bear with us as we get fully up to speed. Surgeries may run slower and we appreciate your patience.
