Breathe new life into your old inhaler - or going green with inhalers!
Burwell Surgery is now a recycling point.
Have you ever thought about what you throw away when you discard a used inhaler? All that plastic and metal?
Did you know that you CAN recycle these? But NOT in your normal household waste or plastic/metal recycling bins.
Complete the Cycle initiative developed by one of the makers of inhalers has been around for over 5 years.
When you're next in for your asthma review or just passing, why not bring in your used inhalers.
Complete the Cycle and drop them off at Reception.
Need a routine appointment when we are closed. Ask our receptionist to book you an appointment with the Extended Access Team.

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.

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.
