Winter Access Appointments

Swavesey Surgery are pleased to announce that due to the increase in demand for appointments we will be offering additional sessions with the GPs from January until 31st March 2022.

This will be a telephone consultation in the first instance, you will be advised by the GP if you are required to attend a face to face appointment at the surgery following your call.

Accessing GP appointments during coronavirus

  • Due to the coronavirus outbreak, how you contact your GP surgery will be different at the moment. This is to limit face-face contact where possible and help stop the spread of coronavirus
  • Face-to-face appointments are available to all patients, but you may be asked to discuss your conditions over the phone or online first to assess what would be most appropriate for you.
  • In addition to face-to-face consultations, many GP practices are offering consultations online or over the phone. This can be a convenient and flexible way to receive healthcare but if you would prefer to see a GP or healthcare professional in person then this will be arranged for you.

You can also call NHS 111 for health advice.

  • British Sign Language link for 111

Please do not come to the surgery unless you have an appointment.

If you are waiting for a check-up, please be assured we will be in touch

Appointments are being delivered face-to-face, online and over the telephone. If you are asked to come into the surgery for a face-to-face appointment, please remember to wear a face covering. Measures are in place to keep you safe from infection during your visit to the surgery.
