Accident & Emergency
We work closely with our colleagues at Hinchingbrooke Hospital & Addenbrookes Hospital to ensure that NHS services and funds are used appropriately. Please only use A&E departments if you have a genuine emergency or accident which cannot be dealt with by the Acorn Surgery doctors. Unless you have a life-threatening emergency—when you should dial 999— if you need care during normal surgery hours, please contact us first and we will either see you at the surgery or offer appropriate advice over the telephone.
