Welcome to Thistlemoor Medical Centre 

We are a central Peterborough General Practice looking after over 24,000 Patients. 

We are a teaching practice and help teach medical students from Imperial College and Cambridge University as well as training doctors preparing to be hospital specialists and General Practitioners.
The purpose of this site is to provide information to our current patients, future patients and people seeking information about our services.

If you are looking for information on how to register with our Practice to allow us to care for you please look at this section.

We host other services that deliver endoscopy, colonoscopyultrasound scanning and aortic aneurysm clinics. If you are looking for information regarding these services please click on the relevant section. 
We offer advanced access to any of our 24,000 patients who wish to see a Doctor between 8:30am and 10:30am. This means that patients can walk in to the surgery at this time and will be seen in the surgery by a clinician without an appointment, Monday to Friday. 


We are striving to provide our patients a choice of clinician during our OPEN ACCESS morning surgery on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Whilst the majority of times during the OPEN ACCESS morning surgery clinics this will be achievable we ask that our patients are understanding if we are unable to offer this option on some days when it should be available due to unforeseen circumstances or if certain clinicians have a high volume of patients requesting to see them. 

You will be advised on arrival if this option is unavailable. We thank you for your understanding.

Our services are currently extremely in demand and we are seeing over 300 patients in our morning surgeries. We continue to aim to allow any patient who wishes to be seen to have an appointment with a clinician, but hope you can understand that waiting times will increase and your choice of clinician could be limited.

We offer a full general practice service including health promotion clinics for long-term conditions: diabetes, asthma, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), heart disease and high blood pressure. We also offer minor surgical procedures on site to remove skin lesions and insert and remove contraceptive devices. Please see this section for more details. We unfortunately no longer offer travel immunisation appointments. We are providing extra evening and weekend appointments over the winter period through NHS England's commissioning of extra appointments. These appointments will be pre-booked only and will be focussed on chronic disease appointments. 

Afternoon appointments are available from 4pm - 6pm daily except for Thursday when there is an emergency surgery only. Unfortunately there are a limited number of appointments for this service and you may need to wait for an appointment. 

We promote and would like all of our patients to take an active interest in maintaining their own health as far as possible with assurance that expert help and advice will be available when necessary at both primary and secondary care levels.

We have a car park located at the rear of the surgery with a capacity for around 160 car spaces. This is accessed from Lincoln Road between the Car sales site and the community church on Lincoln Road just beyond the triangle. Please see the maps on this page for further orientation.

The surgery is centrally located within easy reach of bus routes and there is a chemist close to the surgery. 

The premises have been extended and modernised to provide comprehensive facilities for patients. The surgery is fully computerised and linked electronically to the hospital and community services.

We are looking to further develop our services and care and are keen on your suggestions. Please see the "Patient Participation Group" section for further information. 


We are currently looking to expand our team of paramedics and nurses. If you are interested in moving in to general practice or an extended nursing role, please send your CV to our practice manager. Paulina Jancuzra:

Travel Vaccinations:

Please note that the surgery does not provide travel vaccinations. This is a non-NHS service and there are several other providers of this service around Peterborough. Travel Vaccination services are provided by supermarkets and some chemists.

We would advise you to do your own research based on cost and quality of service. We are not in a position to make recommendations relating to this.
