Welcome to Monkfield Medical Practice in Cambourne
Monkfield Medical Practice is a National Health Service general practice providing a service to the residents of Great, Upper and Lower Cambourne. We are committed to helping you manage the important health issues that arise for you and your family.
DO YOU REALLY NEED A DOCTOR?
We are now into the time of year when demand for appointments is at its highest as the inevitable coughs, colds and flu are rife. As you have probably read in the national press, hospitals and GP practices across the country are struggling to keep up, as the demand this year is higher than ever. We would therefore urge you to consider other options before calling the surgery for an appointment as most minor illnesses can be managed at home without the need to see a Doctor. Your local pharmacist will be happy to give advice on suitable over the counter medications and the NHS 111 service can provide advice and information (this service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year and calls from landlines and mobile phones are free). Of course, if they feel you do need to see a GP they would advise you to do so. With your help in this way we can make sure that appointments are available for those who really need them.
