Important news: Visiting our practice? Please continue to wear a face covering and social distance
All of our COVID-19 secure measures remain in place. This did not change in February 2022 when Government guidance changed for the general public. There are no changes to the guidance for GP surgeries.
Patients are asked to continue to wear a face covering, unless they are exempt, and to follow social distancing when visiting our GP Practice.
This follows the national Infection Prevention Control (IPC) Guidance for all healthcare settings and will help to ensure the safety of our staff and patients at all times.
Thank you for your continued support.
Wellside Surgery provides medical care to approximately 7900 patients living in Sawtry and the surrounding villages. We also provide dispensing services to patients who live more than one mile away from their nearest pharmacy.
A surgery has existed on the current site for over 30 years. The practice is housed in a purpose built premises which has been extended over time to accommodate and keep up with the needs of our practice population.
The present partnership is comprised of four GPs supported by a comprehensive integrated team including Practice Manager – Mrs Claire Wright, Salaried GPs, GP Trainees, Practice Nurses, Health Care Assistant, Receptionists, Dispensers, Administrators and Medical Secretary.

The outcome of your assessment will direct you to the right treatment, whether emergency care, your GP, nurse or self-care.
If your outcome indicates that an appointment is required at your GP Practice, you simply click on the "request an appointment" button.
Once the request has been submitted, you will then be contacted by the Practice Team, to arrange an appointment within the identified timeframe (as outlined in the outcome of your symptom checker).
The information you provide will be shared with our clinical team (where appropriate) and will assist in providing robust information of your problem to the required clinical team member prior to your appointment.
