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.

Dr Sean Culloty (m)

I am married and have 2 children. We moved here from London when I joined the Spinney in 1998.

I have a wide range of medical interests and enjoy the generalist nature of General practice. I have responsibility for overseeing Diabetes care at the Spinney among other things. I have a small role in local medical politics, being a member of the Cambridgeshire Local Medical Group, something that oversees local GPs and tries to ensure fairness and good quality medical care for everyone. I am also involved in the Cambridgeshire medicine management team, trying to help ensure fair and cost effective prescribing occurs so the most people can get appropriate treatment and precious resources are not wasted.

The Spinney is a very dynamic surgery, packed with talented staff. I enjoy working here - life is never dull and usually very hectic.

My non medical include motorcycles - I was a motorcycle mechanic for a few years (no not part of my GP training!) and I enjoy cycling, wakeboarding, sailing, computers, electronic gadgets and podcasts. I manage to get to the Marriott Gym most days (as it is too late when I finish work to go on a decent bike ride) and am pleased to regularly meet a few of my patients there.

I hope to continue working as a GP until I am 70; something it looks like the Government wants us all to do!

I have a particular interest in Dermatology and do quite a lot of the minor operations at the surgery. I am also an appraiser and senior appraiser for NHS England. I have a daughter, one cat and enjoy all sorts of craft.

I will be involved with teaching the medical students and as well as being very enjoyable I believe this is an excellent way to keep up to date with latest guidelines and medical practice.Outside of general practice I am a yoga teacher and like to stay active in any way I can
