Welcome to Cardinal Medical Practice


Cardinal Medical Practice has changed the way you can book your appointment with AskMyGP.

Save time and book online – no more queuing on the telephone. Just click on the askmyGP logo above.

  • Available daily between 8:00am – 18:30pm, Monday to Friday.
  • We will usually get back to you within 2 hours (after 4:30pm it might be the next day).
  • You can request a particular Doctor or Nurse (so long as they’re working).
  • You can choose to be contacted by the surgery by telephone or secure message.
  • If we need to see you we will usually give you an appointment the same day.
  • You will need to register the first time you use askmyGP, but this can be done without any paperwork.
  • AskmyGP is available to all our patients, and you can use it to ask about your children or other people you care for (if they are registered with us).

Covid-19 Update

From Monday 19th July 2021, we can confirm that all staff at the Surgery will continue to wear masks and PPE beyond the 19th July during face-to-face consultations.

We kindly request that all patients attending the Surgery also continue to wear a facemask or covering (unless clinically exempt) until further notice.  We will continue to operate a social distancing model on our premises. We have made this decision in line with Government advice on maintaining the use of masks and face coverings in health settings. 

Complying with our policy will ensure the ongoing protection of clinically vulnerable patients and staff, and will also mean that we can maintain open access to our services while reducing the risk of transmission to our staff and the impact this would have on our ability to operate.

We thank you for your cooperation and support.

Cardinal Medical Practice Merger

We are very pleased to announce the exciting news of the formation of your new GP Practice, Cardinal Medical Practice from 1st July 2021.

As you know, the new practice has been formed through the merger of Deben Road, Norwich Road and Chesterfield Drive practices. We will continue to work from all three existing sites until the new building is completed.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support and understanding through the merger process, which is still ongoing. We also wanted to update you on some important information that you need to know:

  • You are now registered under Cardinal Medical Practice. All your records are automatically transferred to the new practice so there is nothing you need to do
  • Our new telephone number is 01473 741349 · Our new general email address is spc.cardinalmedicalpractice@nhs.net

Please note that all our staff have access to your medical records in order to undertake their role. If you have any concerns about this please contact us by email.

You may be aware that Claydon and Barham Surgery closed on 30th June and Cardinal Medical Practice has been asked to register those patients who live in our catchment area. We ask for your understanding and patience as we adapt to both the merger, staff changes and the extra demands resulting from the Claydon and Barham surgery closure.

Yours sincerely

Drs Ifionu, Donepudi, Ande, Nye and Armour
