The Red House Surgery
The Medical Centre is a branch surgery of The Red House Surgery, which is on Chesterton Road in Cambridge. There may be occasions when demand for appointments is high or a specific service is requested that can only be provided at the main surgery, at which point you will be given an appointment at The Red House Surgery.
To get the most out of the services provided by The Medical Centre & the NHS it is important that you use them appropriately.
For many minor ailments such as colds, coughs and sore throats you can get advice and over-the counter treatment at your local pharmacy. You can be seen at your local pharmacy today without an appointment!

The Accident and Emergency (A&E) Department – Addenbrooke’s Hospital
On any one day in the NHS, A&E departments will treat more than 40,000 patients!
Therefore it is important that people use them properly. You should think carefully whether or not your condition or illness is a real emergency, as you may prevent others with life-threatening conditions from getting immediate care.
A&E is not an alternative to your doctor. It is not appropriate to go to A&E just because your doctor cannot see you immediately. Calling 999 for an ambulance will not get you to the top of the A&E queue; all patients are seen on the basis of medical need, not how they arrive at hospital.
A&E doctors are not more experienced than your doctor. Your doctor is an expert in dealing with medical problems and A&E doctors are specialists in accidents and emergencies.
When is it an EMERGENCY ?
AN EMERGENCY IS A CRITICAL LIFE THREATENING SITUATION such as
- Suspected heart attack
- Heavy blood loss
- Suspected broken bones
- Deep wounds such as stab wounds
- Severe breathing difficulties
- Head injuries
It is usually very obvious if the person is seriously ill and needs emergency care.
You should seek medical attention by either taking the person to A&E or by telephoning 999 for an emergency ambulance.
