Other Information

Advanced Access

Should you wish to use this system, every effort will be made to provide an appointment with a health care professional within 24 hours (though we cannot guarantee access to a particular doctor). If you consider your need is one of medical urgency, please tell the receptionist.

Triage

Our triage procedure is in place for those patients who would like a same-day appointment. Once you have requested an appointment you will be called back by the practice nurse and assessed ("triaged") to determine the degree of urgency your condition warrants. You will then be routed to the appropriate health care professional for treatment.

Interpreting Service

This is available to any patient who requires it, with an interpreter on the telephone. You must let us know in advance if you will need the interpreting service so that the appropriate arrangements can be made in good time. As an alternative, you may wish to bring an English-speaking friend or relative to your consultation and this is welcome.

We also offer information leaflets on various medical matters in 17 other languages.

Dental Services

The practice does not provide a dental service. Patients not registered with a dentist and who require emergency treatment for the relief of pain, should contact the NHS Dental Access Centre at 5 Midgate, Peterborough (contact via NHS Direct on 0845 4647).

Smoking

Every cigarette you smoke can shorten your life by an average of five and a half minutes. Giving up smoking is all about motivation. Set a date in the future when you are going to stop and tell all your friends so that they can support you in your decision. When the big day comes, plan carefully to keep yourself busy and try to avoid situations which may tempt you into having a cigarette. You could put aside the money that you would spend and save up to treat yourself. If you have tried everything and still want to give up, contact your doctor for extra help.

Cold and Flu Like Symptoms

Even in this day and age there is no magic cure for the common cold. Go to bed and take plenty of drinks. If you have a headache or are feverish, take aspirin or paracetamol. Antibiotics do not have any effect.

Child with a High Temperature

Remove all clothing and cool the skin by sponging with tepid water. Give small amounts of water or diluted juice to drink often. Give calpol, paracetamol or disprol syrup which is available from your local pharmacy.

If a temperature remains high, consult your doctor.
