Covid Clinics Closed Afternooons

Our services are being affected as we are contributing to the Covid booster campaign and also some of our staff are self isolating. 

We have fewer clinicians available and fewer appointments right now so please think before you call us, thank you.

Patient Notice: A supplier to the NHS has advised us of a global shortage of some equipment used for taking blood tests. 

Anyone who needs a test for urgent health problems, will still get one but where your clinician recommends that it’s safe to do so, then you may be asked to come back for a test at a later date, or your appointment may be rescheduled. 

Given the nature of the shortage, we cannot give an exact date for when the test will be rescheduled, but please be assured that if your condition or symptoms require it, then you will get a test, and we will be re-booking your test when supplies become more easily available. 

If your condition or symptoms change or get worse, please contact the NHS as you would normally.

Day to day in General practice

Help us help you – busy service

"All NHS services are under severe pressure at the moment, as we look after increasing numbers of patients who are sick with covid-19 in the community, and other deteriorating conditions too.
We are also delivering the huge and vitally important covid-19 vaccination programme. Please do not contact us regarding a vaccine, we will contact you.

So that we can focus on these really important issues, we will understandably be prioritising urgent care. 
This means that when you contact us, we may have an initial conversation with you to understand how urgent your health needs are. 

If you have an issue that is not urgent, you may have to wait longer than usual until your problem or concern can be dealt with. You may be asked to rebook at a later date, or at a safer time (e.g. attending for a non-urgent blood test).

Do please make sure that you continue to get in touch with us if you need to. This is particularly important if:
• your problem is genuinely urgent
• you have a long term condition that is getting worse
• you are worried about symptoms that might indicate cancer

Please also remember you can call NHS 111 for urgent concerns, and 999 for serious emergencies.  Your local pharmacist can also help with minor complaints too.

For adults with mental health problems including depression and anxiety, you can refer yourself directly to the local wellbeing service, via 0300 300 0055.
If you’re experiencing a mental health crisis, call the First Response Service by calling 111 and select option 2 (in Wisbech call 111, select option 1 and ask to be put through to the First Response Service).

A local CCG has produced an excellent childhood illnesses leaflet free to download here, full of advice and information for parents and carers of young children:

The Cambridgeshire County Council has a range of support and information to help in times of urgent need: telephone 0345 045 5202 8am-6pm weekdays 9am-1pm Saturdays. Outside office hours if someone is in danger telephone 01733 234724. In an emergency, call 999. Also see

Thank you very much for helping us all manage under these very difficult circumstances."

Caring Together support for carers to access COVID-19 vaccinations

At Caring Together we know how important it is that people looking after a family member or friend get the coronavirus vaccination.

We also know it can be very difficult for carers and those they care for* to be able to go to appointments for a range of reasons. This could be due to transport, needing someone to look after the person they care for or any other reason.

We are here to help. If you are a carer in Norfolk, Cambridgeshire or Peterborough who has challenges attending your appointment to have your coronavirus vaccination please contact us.

You can call Caring Toegether on 0345 241 0954 or email

*A carer is anyone, including children and adults, who looks after a family member, partner or friend who needs help because of their illness, frailty, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction and cannot cope without their support.

Doctor link appPaston & Werrington Health Centres would like to invite you to join DoctorLink

We have been looking at how we can improve access to Practice services; DoctorLink is our new online service where you can:

  • Access advice
  • Book appointments online
  • Request Repeat Prescriptions
  • Request Fit/Sick Notes

Sign-up is simple and you can create an account here 

For all urgent appointments, we ask that you undertake a symptom assessment through DoctorLink. The symptom assessment will ask you a number of questions to help to identify your problem. The outcome of your assessment will direct you to the right treatment, whether emergency care, your GP, nurse or self-care. If your outcome indicates that an appointment is required at your GP Practice, you simply click on the “book an appointment” button and book your appointment directly. If no appointments are available, you will see a “request an appointment” button, please click this. Once the request has been submitted, you will then be contacted by the Practice Team, to arrange an appointment within the identified timeframe (as outlined in the outcome of your symptom checker).

The information you provide will be shared with our clinical team (where appropriate) and will assist in providing robust information of your problem to the required clinical team member prior to your appointment.

Online Services


GP online services allow you to access a range of services via your computer, mobile or tablet. Once you have signed up, you will be able to:

  • book or cancel appointments online
  • renew or order repeat prescriptions online
  • view parts of your GP record, including information about medication, allergies, vaccinations, previous illnesses and test results

You can still contact the practice by phone or in person, this is just another option, which other patients have found is more convenient and saves them time. More information including “how to” leaflets and videos of patients and why they are using GP online services are available at

Are you still experiencing symptoms after COVID-19 (Poster)



Message to our patients – update on the COVID-19 booster programme

Across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough the NHS and its partners are working extremely hard to roll out the COVID-19 booster vaccination programme to our communities.
All adults are eligible from Monday 13 December, and you will be able to book via the National Booking System from Wednesday 15 December.
You can book your booster for 3 months from the date of second vaccine, and you can access the National Booking System to book the appointment from 2 months.
We are working at pace to increase the availability of appointments so that there are plenty of options for people on the National Booking System. Some local vaccination services may also contact patients directly.
New appointments are being added every day across our vaccination services. Further availability will come online from Wednesday 15 December.
All of these appointments will be added to the National Booking System and so we encourage everyone who is aged 18 and over, is yet to have their booster and who is approaching 3 months from your second vaccine to use the National Booking System to arrange your appointment when you are able to do so.

Visiting our practice? Please continue to wear a face covering and social distance

All of our COVID-19 secure measures remain in place and this will not change when Government guidance changes on 19 July 2021.

Patients are asked to continue to wear a face covering, unless they are exempt, and to follow social distancing when visiting our GP Practice.

This follows the national Infection Prevention Control (IPC) Guidance for all healthcare settings and will help to ensure the safety of our staff and patients at all times.

Thank you for your continued support.

COVID-19 vaccination programme

We will be starting to offer Covid-19 vaccinations to our patients in the priority groups including the over 80s and social care workers. Eligible patients will be contacted direct to arrange an appointment. Please don’t contact us to seek a vaccine before then.

The vaccination programme will continue throughout the current national lockdown.

As soon as more vaccines become available, they will be offered to other people at risk as soon as possible. More patient information on the Covid-19 vaccine is available here.

Please continue to abide by all the social distancing, wearing of face masks and hand hygiene guidance, which will still save lives.
