Marie Rouse, Advanced Nurse Practitioner - Diabetes Specialist Nurse, has diabetes clinics on Monday to Wednesday. These take place at both our Histon surgery and Cottenham branch surgery. Marie is also able to help with minor illness problems.
We advise on all types of contraception. You can see any of the doctors or the nurse for advice during normal surgery hours. Coil and cap fittings need a special appointment.
We are happy to provide antenatal and postnatal care with the help of the community midwife. She is also able to offer pre-conception advice.
Practice Nurse Clinics
The practice nurses are based in the surgery and can be seen by appointment. They provide a wide range of treatments including:
If you’re a smoker, giving up is the single most valuable step you can take to improve your health. It can improve your lifestyle and finances too! Please book an appointment with one of our practice nurses to discuss quitting smoking. The NHS can help you to quit using a variety of support tools.
When you go smoke free, you are up to four times more likely to succeed if you use NHS support and stop smoking medicines such as patches or gum to manage your cravings.

As per price list on Firs Website Sept 2018
Most of the services we offer are free under the NHS. Some services are not covered and for these your GP, like any other professional, will charge a fee. The fee will reflect the doctor or nurses time to carry out the service, the doctors professional opinion, as well as the cost of other staff support and consumables.
We do not offer capacity assessments for legal forms. You will need to speak to a solicitor or private psychiatrist for this service.
Please note that due to a variety of medicolegal reasons, we are unable to state fitness for a certain activities, even following examination/medical. Whilst we will provide a medical statement of fact, you may need a specialist private opinion to decide about fitness to undertake certain activities. We may comment that we see no reason why you are unfit to partake in an activity; however, statement of fitness may need to be done by a specialist who is properly trained and indemnified in the given area (ie. Occupational health specialist, sports medicine etc).
We do not do fitness to exercise letters such as the Paris Marathon forms. There are online private expert sites that deal with such requests.
We aim to complete all paperwork within 2 weeks of receiving documents and payment. Work will not commence until payment has been received. Prior to paperwork being given to the surgery for completion, please fill out your relevant parts entirely.
Forms that are required within 2 weeks of the date of receipt may incur an additional processing charge of £20. This is because the administration, secretaries and doctors need to make special arrangements to process the forms quickly.
Postage costs are not included in the above costs. If required, please give a self-addressed stamped envelope at time of delivery or arrange for collection from the surgery.
For holiday cancellation forms, please complete all sections relevant to date of travel, when the holiday was booked and when insurance was taken out.
Charges for private appointments may be taken at time of booking. This amount is non-refundable if the appointment is not attended. This is due to an increasing rise in patients who do not attend booked appointments.
ZIKA VIRUS - Information from NHS Choices
People travelling to affected areas should seek travel health advice before their trip. You can use this AZ guide to check if the country you are visiting has a high risk, medium risk or low risk for Zika virus transmission.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe the EU has published useful information for travellers on the European website.
Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability.
During your consultation your doctor will advise you when they expect any test results to be available. They will also advise you whether or not you need to phone in for your results. If they ask you to do this please phone and speak to a receptionist after 10 am.
We will only give results to the person who has had the test, or to the parents of minors.
