Please be aware that there is another surgery with a similar name - Please double check the contact details as we are based in Cambridgeshire.
Over the next three months we are working with NHS England to offer extra GP appointments. This is because we know that there are times you want to be able to see a GP at short notice. We also know that over winter lots of people have seasonal illnesses which require more than a pharmacy but don’t need emergency treatment. The way you book appointments hasn't changed we have just added extra.
Dr Eschle arrived at the Moat House Surgery at the end of November but has since decided that, although he enjoys working here, would prefer a full time position which has been offered to him by a surgery in Wisbech. He will therefore be leaving the Moat House on 24th February. The remaining doctors will be here as usual but you may be offered an appointment, especially if you want to be seen on the day, by a Locum Doctor.
Please note that you are always able to speak to a doctor on the day if you need to. If you are acutely unwell you will be called back by a clinician and they will book you an appointment the same day, if required. Where possible this will be with the doctor of your choosing but if you are needing to be seen as an urgent patient on the same day you will be offered the next available appointment.
Please see the 'Your Health' section at the bottom of the right hand side of the website for useful links and information about your health.
Please be aware that the fire alarm will be tested at the surgery every Monday morning at approx. 9am. Unless instructed otherwise by a member of staff no action will be needed by yourselves.
As a member of the local Hunts Care Partners we do have to attend meetings every month. Sometimes you will not be aware of this but some months we do have to send more than one clinician. This will mean that there will be occasions during a working week when there may be only one GP available during the afternoon.
We apologise for any invconvenience this may cause.
NEW to the practice
If you are planning on registering with the practice you can submit or download a copy of the NHS registration form via "New Patients". It is worth saying that we do have a defined catchment area and you will still need to attend the surgery for this form to be signed. All new patients will also need to confirm that they are happy to "share" their care records. If you do not wish this then please access the "Summary Care Record" under further information for the Opt Out Form.
Sharing of summary care records went "live" on 20th March 2012.
Virtual Patient Participation Group
We are pleased to report that we now have a virtual Patient Participation Group consisting of over 100 patients. Patients can continue to "sign up" to this group by completing the form (Further Information number 1).
By accessing "travel vaccinations" in Further Information you can complete the practice travel questionnaire. This will save you having to collect one from the surgery. Once completed please ensure that you submit and we will print if off this end. Once we have your details we will contact you to arrange an appointment for your travel injections (if needed).
By accessing "prescriptions" you can complete an automated repeat prescription request form which once submitted will be processed by our reception/dispensing team ready for collection within 2 working days (not counting weekends please).
We would also request that you tell us exactly what you need rather than "all my tablets". If we are not sure we will have to contact you for clarification which could delay you getting your prescription.
