Self Care Medicines.


The Medicine Optimisation Team of the Cambridgeshire CCG has instructed us to stop prescribing treatments that are available over the counter, inexpensive and used intermittently. This includes hay fever medication which we are therefore no longer routinely issuing and instead asking patients if they are able to purchase themselves. 


The main reason for this rationing is the very challenged financial position of the Cambridgeshire health economy which if not addressed will result in cuts to important services which will affect us all but we must also remember that there are advantages to buying these medications as it promotes self care, independence and reduced reliance on the surgery.


At The Spinney we understand that such changes are not popular but all of us must do what we can to protect our fragile health economy and we will prescribe for those patients unable or unwilling to support our local NHS in this way. 

New Patient Registrationregister_now

Patients living within the practice area are welcome to register and our reception staff can confirm your eligibility from your postcode. In this respect please bring along proof of address such as a recent utility bill.  

As a practice our first obligation is to provide a safe service to our registered patients and therefore the practice has decided not to accept out of area patients in view of the practical or clinical needs of our in area patients. This includes patients who are currently registered with us and moving to an out of area address. 

You will also need to complete a registration form (GMS1) and a health questionnaire which will provide useful information whilst we wait for your medical records to arrive from your previous doctor.

New patients are welcome to have a health check with a member of the healthcare team.

Medical treatment is available from the date of registration.  Please contact reception for further information.

The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them.  You can download the guide below.
