Patient Participation Group Meeting
The last PPG meeting was on 15th July talking about coping with hearing loss. Frances Dewhurst, Director of Cambridgeshire Hearing Help facilitated the meeting, giving a very intersting and enjoyable presentation, about the charity Cambridgeshire Hearing Help, the difficulties people with hearing loss face, and the available technoligies and support that can help them. Thank you to Frances, and to the PPG for organising such a valuable evening.
The next PPG meeting will be the Annual General Meeting on Thursday 17th September 2015 at 18.30 at Huntingdon Road Surgery. All registered patients are welcome, so please do come along, and let us know your thoughts and ideas to help us provide the service you want.
Light refreshments will be provided, so please let one of our receptionists know if you would like to attend, or contact us on through the PPG page on this site.
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
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.
