WHEN WE ARE CLOSED

If you require urgent medical attention outside normal surgery hours please call 01480 406677 and your call will be automatically transferred to Urgent Care Cambridgeshire, Out-of-Hours Service

Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.  

 

St Neots Health Centre

If you are needing advice and the surgery is closed you can also attend the walk in clinics at The St. Neots Walk in Centre.

Monday to Friday between 6.00pm to 8.00pm
Saturday to Sunday 9.00am to 4.00pm

This is a sit and wait service.

 

Dealing With An Emergency

 

Call 999 in an emergency. 

A medical emergency is a situation in which the health of a person is at high risk of deteriorating rapidly without immediate medical attention.

For example, chest pains, increasing difficulty in breathing, impaired consciousness and any of the signs of a stroke (facial weakness, inability to lift a limb or slurred speech) constitute an emergency.

In a medical emergency you can access urgent paramedical help by calling 999 (or 911)
