Welcome to Cathedral Medical Centre
Hospital Appointment and Referral Information
The COVID-19 pandemic has added to the strain on all NHS services. As a result of this, waiting list times for outpatient and specialist appointments and procedures have increased for everybody.
As we do not directly manage the wait times for the hospitals we ask that you please look at My Planned Care, for the current wait times within your region.
We appreciate that these long waits can cause worry and uncertainty about when you will eventually receive an appointment. The practice has no direct access to the hospital appointment lists.
My Planned Care gives you advice and support while you wait and helps you to prepare for your hospital consultation, treatment, or surgery. This includes giving you information about waiting times at your hospital and other supporting and local services while you wait.
This site is updated weekly and can be viewed by anyone, which means you, your family or carer as well as your NHS team can all see the latest information.
Your hospital team will be in touch with you as soon as they can. If you are looking for an update, please check this website before contacting your hospital.
Only call the practice if your condition has genuinely deteriorated, when you will be reviewed by one of the clinical team and appropriate action can be taken in regard to your care.
Please help us to help you - the easiest and fastest way to ask for help from a GP is with askmyGP.
It's available for you to log your care request(s) 7am to 7pm Monday to Friday; outside of these times please call 111 or 999 as appropriate
We respond within working hours, 8am to 6pm Monday to Friday, and we aim to respond as soon as possible
All our registered patients are welcome, and as a parent or carer you can use askmyGP on behalf of a patient
You can choose a particular named GP if you wish (so long as they are working that day)
You may prefer a telephone or email response
You can login now, without any paperwork

NHS Data Collection
Your health records contain a type of data called confidential patient information. This data can be used to help with research and planning.
You can choose to stop your confidential patient information being used for research and planning. You can also make a choice for someone else like your children under the age of 13.
If you wish to choose to opt-out or check what your current choice is then please go to this page HERE
Volunteer breastfeeding peer supporters wanted
Peer supporters can make a real difference to women who want to breastfeed. They listen, provide information, and share experiences to help mothers reach their feeding goals. Being mothers themselves, they understand. They ‘get it’.
Does this sound like something you could do? If so please find more information HERE
Carers Short Breaks Project
Could you help to provide breaks for carers in East Cambridgeshire? Please find more information HERE
Information for carers can be found HERE
Our dedicated team are here to treat those minor ailments that occur as well as providing specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues. The technology also means you can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription or cancel an appointment.
Partners in Care
Once registered, patients and healthcare professionals work together to ensure the most appropriate care is provided. This partnership philosophy extends even further and our active patient group exists to make sure that patient needs and the practice offering are always heading in the same direction.
