WELCOME TO BOTTISHAM MEDICAL PRACTICE
Tunbridge Lane will be closed between Rowley Gardens and Ancients Meadows for essential works to be carried out from 5 March 2017 to 31 March 2017. A diversion will be put in place to access the surgery via Swaffham Bulbeck.
MORE GP APPOINTMENTS RELEASED
Over the next three months we are working with NHS England to offer extra GP "winter" appointments. This is because we know that there are times you want to be able to see a GP at short notice. We also know that over winter lots of people have seasonal illnesses which require more than a pharmacy but don't need emergency treatment.
The extra appointments are bookable on the day by ringing reception on the usual number.
If you are not able to attend an appointment you have booked, for whatever reason, please let us know. We can then offer than appointment to someone else that needs it.
Bottisham Medical Practice is running a Medical Equipment Amnesty - Save your NHS money by returning unused equipment
Return your unwanted medical equipment to Bottisham Medical Practice. We are looking for crutches, sticks, wheel chairs, mobility aids, commodes, hearing aids etc. You can return your unwanted equipment to Bottisham Medical Practice. If you are unable to bring the equipment in call reception on 01223 810030 who can arrange for it to be collected.
