Patients are registered with the practice rather than an individual GP. Your medical card will be issued in the name of the surgery.
All specimens should be handed to the Nurse or put in the basket by the nurse’s station. Please ensure they are clearly labelled with your name and date of birth, and the date the specimen was obtained.
The nurse is available between 12.30 to 1.00pm if you wish to ring up to check on your results.
All the staff are aware of their responsibility to you in maintaining confidentiality at all times. We would like to assure you that all the information about you on the computer is available only to authorised staff.
Bourn Surgery is committed to providing a safe, comfortable environment where patients and staff can be confident that best practice is being followed at all times and that the safety of everyone is of paramount importance.
All patients are entitled to have a chaperone present for any consultation, examination or procedure where they feel one is required. This chaperone may be a family member or friend. On occasions you may prefer a formal chaperone to be present i.e. a trained member of staff.
When to request your chaperone:
Wherever possible we would ask you to make this request at the time of booking an appointment so that arrangements can be made and your appointment is not delayed in any way. Where this is not possible we will endeavour to provide a formal chaperone at the time of request. However occasionally it may be necessary to reschedule your appointment.
Your healthcare professional may also occasionally request a chaperone to be present for certain consultations in accordance with our chaperone policy.
If you have any questions or comments regarding this policy,
please contact Tracey Wilson Practice Manager. Tel 01954 718772
Please note that there is wheelchair access to Bourn Surgery.
Patients are reminded that any violent or abusive behaviour will result in removal from our list.
Please remember of your responsibility to keep all appointments; this helps in the smooth running if the practice.
CLINICAL COMMISIONING GROUP
Clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) are a core part of the Government’s reforms to the health and social care system. CCGs are NHS organisations set up by the Health and Social Care Act 2012 to organise the delivery of NHS services in England. They are clinically led groups that include all of the GP groups in their geographical area. Each CCG has a constitution and is run by its governing body. Bourn Surgery is part of the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough CCG.
Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Clinical Commissioning Group is one of the largest CCGs in England (by patient population), with 102 GP practices as members, which cover all GP practices in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, as well as three practices in North Hertfordshire (Royston) and two in Northamptonshire (Oundle and Wansford). They are responsible for planning and buying local NHS services, such as the care received in hospital and in the community, as well as ensuring they deliver the best possible care and treatment for patients. The CCG has a patient population of over 960,000 which is diverse, ageing and has significant inequalities. They manage a budget of around £1 billion to spend on healthcare for the whole population of this area, which is just over £1,000 per person. The CCG has to work within a local budget from the NHS for local health services and work closely with other NHS colleagues and local authorities to ensure local people are receiving the best possible care.

Bourn Surgery is also part of the Cambs GP Network, a fledgling federation of local GP practices, which has the aspiration to promote closer working and sharing of resources between practices.
