Use antibiotics on your doctor's advice:  Antibiotics are essential to treat serious bacterial infections, but they are frequently being used to treat illnesses such as cough, earache and sore throats that can get better by themselves.  Taking antibiotics encourages harmful bacteria that live inside you to become resistant.  That means that antibiotics may not work when you really  need them.  Research shows that 38% of people still expect an antibiotic from a doctor's surgery, NHS walk-in centre or 'GP out of hours' service when they visited with a cough, flu or a throat, ear, sinus or chest infection in 2017!

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.

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.

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.
