Patient Group Open Meeting - Dementia Awareness - Wednesday 2 July from 6.30
There are seven qualified practice nurses who have undertaken a range of further training, including family planning, diabetic and asthma care. The practice nurses work within the surgery carrying out a wide range of clinical nursing duties and health promotion. Where appropriate, patients may make appointments to see the practice nurses directly.
The Practice Nurses provide the following specialist services:
The GP's and Practice Nurses advise on, and provide, the standard range of contraceptive services including emergency contraception. We also fit and remove contraceptive devices including intra-uterine contraceptive devices (coils) and contraceptive implants (Nexplanon). We will work with you to provide a service that is flexible around your commitments in order to meet your needs.
Provided by all Doctors and Practice Nurses.
Provided by a GP together with a practice nurse or nursing assistant.
The Nursing Assistant carries out a wide range of tasks including blood tests, blood pressure measurements, performing ECG's and assisting with minor surgery.
We are pleased to be able to provide a phlebotomy service so that if a blood test is needed patients have the option of having this taken at the surgery. Appointments are available each day.
Childhood vaccinations are offered by appointment throughout the week. The nurses are trained in childhood vaccinations and all vaccinations are given in accordance with the UK vaccinations schedule.
The routine 6 week development check is carried out by your regular doctor. The 1 and 2 year checks are carried out by a member of the child and family team.
Midwives are specialists in maternity care (the care of pregnant women). They look after you for all pregnancy-related care from your first pregnancy test, during delivery and in the first few weeks after the birth of the baby. The patients at our surgery are looked after by a team of midwives who work from Children's Centres and occasionally see patients in the surgery. They can be contacted at the Cambridge Children's Centre on 01223 586787
Newly pregnant women should book an appointment to see the Midwife as soon as their home pregnancy test is positive.
Huntingdon Road Surgery offers a travel advice service to patients registered here.
Planning well for a trip overseas is important, to try and minimise health problems when you are away, which may interfere with the enjoyment or the success of your trip.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel, please make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible, ideally at least 6 weeks before you travel, as a second and subsequent appointments may be required with the practice nurse to receive the vaccinations.
Some travel vaccines incur a charge. This is because not all vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.

You do not require a doctor's sickness certificate for any illness lasting seven days or less. Your employer may however require you to complete a self-certification form (SC2) which is available from your employer or on the HMRC website.
If you are sick for more than seven days, your employer can ask you to give them some form of medical evidence to support payment of SSP (statutory sick pay).
It is up to your employer to decide whether you are incapable of work. A medical certificate, now called a 'Statement of Fitness for Work’ (see below) from your doctor is strong evidence that you are sick and would normally be accepted, unless there is evidence to prove otherwise.
You could also provide evidence from someone who is not a medical practitioner, e.g. a dentist. Your employer will decide whether or not this evidence is acceptable. If your employer has any doubts, they may still ask for a medical certificate from your GP.
The 'fit note' was introduced on 6 April 2010. With your employer's support, the note will help you return to work sooner by providing more information about the effects of your illness or injury.
