Papworth Surgery

Consultations by appointments are for 10 minutes. Urgent cases will be seen on the same day, otherwise you will be offered the first available time. Your initial call may be directed to our specialised nursing staff so that you can make better use of our services. We will, if at all possible, give you an appointment with the clinician of your choice. If you cannot keep your appointment please let us know.

Appointments for private medical examinations cannot be booked on-line as these as more time is required for the examination. Examples of this are Insurance Company medicals, HGV licence, motor racing licence, pilots licence etc. Please contact the Receptionists for more information and to book an appointment if necessary.
