CQC Inspection
The Care Quality Commission (CQC) have officially rated us as ‘GOOD’ following an inspection on the 12th December 2016. The inspection took place at both Willingham Surgery and Longstanton Surgery and we are very proud of the report. We would like to take this opportunity to thank our patients and the PPG for their support and input. The full report is available on the CQC website and also via the link on our website CQC page.

Out of Hours Care
Please remember to phone 111 if you require medical attention when the surgery is closed. Please remember that Accident & Emergency is intended for life threatening conditions or if you are likely to need an X-ray.
