Minor Injury Service
The surgery provides treatment for minor injuries. This helps to avoid the need for you to travel to hospital and reduces pressure on the A&E department.
The following list gives examples of the types of minor injuries we are able to assess and treat. In some cases we may refer you to hospital for further treatment.
- Foreign Bodies
- Minor Head Injury
- Eye Injury
- Burns and Scalds
- Minor Trauma to Body including hands/limbs/feet
- Whiplash/RTA injuries
Patient Participation Group Meeting
The most recent PPG Meeting was on Wednesday 22nd April @ 6.30 at Huntingdon Road. Dr Connan hosted a Q&A Session, and our Office Manager gave a presentation on the updated website; its content, and the value to Patients of registering with SystmOnline.
Registered patients are now able to book routine appointments with their usual GP online.
This service uses SystmOnline, the online repeat prescription request service. If you already order your repeat prescriptions on line you will automatically have access to the appointment booking section.
If you would like to sign up for SystmOnline please contact reception to set up your account.
Central Reception for all telephone calls to both Huntingdon Road and Girton Surgeries

To facilitate this the reception desk at Girton now closes at 11.45am; the Dispensary hours remain the same, open until 1.00pm.
Dementia Awareness Meeting 14th January 2015
We had a very informative and enjoyable meeting on 14th January 2014 discussing Dementia Awareness. It is a very important issue and I think that all those attending found it valuable. Our thanks to the PPG for organising the meeting and our thanks to Chantal Bradley for running the meeting and making it so interactive. If you have any thoughts regarding subjects for future meetings please do contact the PPG by clicking on the Patient Participation Group Contact us link on this website, or by placing a comment in either of the PPG boxes, at Huntingdon Road Surgery or Girton Surgery.
