Important Notice: Baby Clinics
Doctors and nurses are available for contraceptive advice.
Certain minor surgical procedures are carried out by the doctors.
We recommend that children should be immunised against Polio, Diphtheria, Tetanus, Whooping Cough, Mumps, Measles, Rubella and some strains of Meningitis. The Child and Family Community nurses or doctor will be pleased to discuss any queries that you may have.
Immunisation is the safest and most effective way of protecting your child against serious disease. Having your child immunised and keeping the immunisations up to date will protect them from potentially life threatening illnesses such as septicaemia and meningitis.
Visit the NHS Immunisation website for more information.
Adults should ensure that they are protected against Tetanus. Flu vaccinations are available each autumn for over 65’s and those at risk.
See the above tab for more details.
Our surgery runs flu clinics during the flu season. Appointments will be available to book from 4th September 2019. Please check back here for updates or our Facebook page: Burwell Surgery.
Our surgery encourages all patients who are over 65, or whose medical condition puts them at particular risk from flu, to have the vaccine. Please check with the surgery if you are unsure if this applies to you.
Other groups who are encouraged to have the flu vaccine are pregnant women, carers and asthma sufferers.
The vaccine can be given quickly and easily and getting vaccinated is the best way to protect you from a potentially fatal disease.
We now have a dementia support worker from the Alzheimer's Society on site to offer support, advice and information for people with dementia, their families and their carers who are registered with us.

No need to ask your GP, book an appointment with Reception or telephone: 01638 741234.

What is a FREE NHS Health Check?
It is a national screening programme designed to detect individuals in the 40 to 74 years old age range who are at risk of developing vascular disease ( high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, diabetes and kidney disease).
Why do I need this check?
By having this check and identifying potential risks early, you can improve your chances of living a healthier life.
What happens next?
It will take about 30 minutes and is based on straightforward questions and measurements such as age, family history, height, weight, a urine test and a simple test to measure your glucose and cholesterol levels.
There is also an opportunity at our sessions to find out about the many local services that are available to support you eg healthy walks, stop smoking and healthy eating.
You will be taken through your results and told what they mean and you’ll be given personalised advice on how to lower your risk and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
