When We Are Closed

The doctor who calls will not be your own doctor.
The service operates overnight on weekdays from 6pm-8am. At the weekend from 6pm friday - 8am monday and over bank holidays. Please telephone and give your details to the call handler who will log your call and ask a doctor or nurse to call you back.

Accident & Emergency
The nearest A&E Department is at Addenbrooke’s Hospital. If you feel your condition is life threatening please go directly there. In most cases we ask that you speak to a GP in the first instance either at your practice or via Urgent Care Cambridgeshire as most conditions can be dealt with by your GP Practice.
Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
