Important information about the coronavirus (COVID-19)


The NHS across the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough will be better prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases, if the public follows Public Health England advice.

The NHS has put in place measures to ensure the safety of patients and staff which may mean your patient experience is subject to change.

The Chief Medical Officer announced on Friday 13 March that the country is moving into the ‘Delay’ stage of the response to coronavirus (Covid-19).

The new advice issued by the Chief Medical Officer is to stay at home for 7 days if you have either:

• a high temperature or

• a new continuous cough


Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or a hospital. You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home.


Use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service if:

• you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home

• your condition gets worse

• your symptoms do not get better after 7 days


Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.


Stay At Home advice can be found here.


Everyone is being reminded to follow Public Health England advice to:

• Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze. Then bin the tissue, and wash your hands, or use a sanitiser gel.

• Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using public transport. Use a sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.

• Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.

• Avoid close contact with people who are unwell.

Information remains subject to regular change and updates. More information can be found on the NHS website here


This website provides many online facilities, including appointment booking and cancellation, and prescription ordering. It also contains a vast range of health information and resources, along with practical information on visiting the surgery. We hope you find it useful and informative. 

Buckden and Little Paxton Surgeries would like to invite you to join DoctorLink.

About our practice

A very warm welcome to Buckden and Little Paxton Surgeries; we look forward to being of assistance to you. We aim to provide a wide range of services, most of which have been detailed in this website. The medical services are provided at two surgery sites depending on which you live closer to. Little Paxton is a smaller surgery and was acquired in January 2006.

It would be appreciated, where possible, if those prospective patients living in the villages within our practice area, other than little Paxton, could register at and attend the surgery at Buckden rather than little Paxton. We have a greater number of appointments at Buckden for all aspects of our service and for those patients living further than 1.6km from a pharmacy, you shall also be able to obtain any medication the doctor prescribes from our Buckden dispensary.

This website was originally compiled by Dr Fargnoli and was designed to tell you about the practice and the services we offer. Details of clinics and time schedules were correct at the last update and can be verified at reception in case of sudden change.

Please see the Comments & Suggestions section if you would like to query anything.
