Welcome to The Buntingford & Puckeridge Medical Practice
Please select the surgery name from the individual dropdown menus above, to be directed to the appropriate information or service that you require.
Bank Holiday Friday 10th & Monday 13th April
During this busy time our surgeries will be open for emergency calls only.
Please call in the morning for urgent triage phone appointments as you normally would. You will also be able to request prescriptions by posting them through the letter box in the new normal way.
If you think you have a medical condition which makes you extremely vulnerable to coronavirus (COVID-19), you will now need to register on the government website as the Doctors are unable to send these letters out. Once you have registered if approved you maybe entitled to extra help and services.
The website you need to go through is:
Received a ‘Shielding Text’? Is it asking you to click on a link?
We have had a number of calls from patients stating they have received a text informing them that they have been identified as high risk and to self-isolate for 12 weeks - the text then asks them (you) to click on a link.
Please DO NOT click on this link as we believe they are fake – Thank you!
If you are concerned that you or a family member may have Corona Virus, please use the NHS 111 'Online Corona Virus Service' https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19
Due to the evolving situation with Coronavirus, The Buntingford & Puckeridge Medical Practice has made the decision to reduce the number of patients coming into the surgery. This is to minimise the risk of contracting the virus for both our staff and patients.
Please avoid visiting the surgery, unless you have been advised to do so by one of our GP's.
We are converting more appointments to telephone and will be encouraging electronic prescribing and ask that anyone that has symptoms of a cough or cold, not to come to the surgery.
If you are concerned you have Coronavirus please stay at home and visit NHS 111 online https://111.nhs.uk/service/covid-19.
Prescription requests can be completed online via SystmOnline or forms are available on our website or outside the surgery which can be completed and posted through the letter box.
We would also ask that you are understanding to our staff who are under increased pressure at this current time.'
If you need to request a prescription and do not currently have access to online services please print and post the below form. This can be posted either through one of our letter boxes or via Royal Mail. Please note you will need to collect your prescription from a nominated pharmacy and not the surgery.
To try and ease pressure on the Pharmacies and ensure that there is enough stock of medication, please do not order your prescription more than one week before it is due as we may not process it. Thank you.

I would like to register with Buntingford Medical Centre now. Is this possible?
We know that a number of patients feel anxious about the re-registration process, and are already trying to re-register. Please be reassured that all patients currently registered with The Orchard Surgery that live within the boundary area of the Buntingford & Puckeridge Medical Practice, will be registered by the 31st March. Please see our Q&A page which we hope will provide additional information relating to the transfer process. If the Q&A does not answer your query, please contact the Reception Team by phone.
