Cestria Health Centre - Our Team Cares
Coronavirus (COVID-19): Please do not attend the surgery. We have moved to telephone triage appointments. Routine appointments, clinics and nurse appointments are being cancelled for the foreseeable future.
If you are unwell with new, continuous cough or temperature and need further advice please use NHS 111 online. For up to date information on social distancing and shielding of high-risk patients please use www.gov.uk/coronavirus
Please do not leave your house if you OR someone you live with has either:
- high temperature OR
- new continuous cough
Stay at home to stop coronavirus spreading
Everyone must stay at home to help stop the spread of coronavirus.
You should only leave the house for 1 of 4 reasons:
•shopping for basic necessities, for example, food and medicine, which must be as infrequent as possible
•one form of exercise a day, for example, a run, walk, or cycle – alone or with members of your household
•any medical need, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person
•travelling to and from work, but only where this absolutely cannot be done from home
These 4 reasons are exceptions – even when doing these activities, you should minimise time spent outside of the home and ensuring you are 2 metres apart from anyone outside of your household.
Thanks for visiting our surgery website where we hope you will find a user-friendly layout and a wealth of information about us.
Use the buttons above and "Quick Links" to the right to find out when we’re open and what to do when we’re not, learn about our services and ethos, and catch up on our latest news.
We are a welcoming practice and we strive always to provide the best possible care for our patients.
Not only do we do everything you would expect of a normal GP surgery, we also offer a range of other specialist clinics - see Clinics and Services.
If you need to see or speak to someone, we won't ask you to "call back at 8.30 tomorrow" - during a normal working week you will always be able to talk to a Doctor or Nurse Practitioner the same day. They may be able to sort things out over the phone, but if not, then you will get an appropriate appointment quickly.
We have a free-for-patients car park and an attached pharmacy operated by Boots.
All of our consulting rooms are disabled accessible and we have a lift servicing the upper floor.
We are delighted to have been rated Outstanding by the Care Quality Commission. See our report here.
Our registered patients can order a repeat prescription, see their medical records, and book a surgery appointment or Doctor/Nurse call back time online.

Health and Happiness
Our team are dedicated to your continued good health and approach your care with professionalism, discretion and friendliness. You can count on a warm welcome from everyone involved here at the practice.
All online appointments have been removed with immediate effect in line with guidance from NHS England. This is to reduce the risk of a patient presenting at the surgery with Coronavirus. This service will be reinstated once we are advised it is safe to do so.
