Be prepared for common health problems by keeping a well-stocked medicine cabinet at home. You can treat many minor illnesses such as colds and coughs, sore throats, and upset stomachs by having a supply of health care essentials such as pain relief (paracetamol), cough and sore throat remedies, a first aid kit, upset stomach treatment, rehydration treatment and heartburn / indigestion treatment. Having these essentials at home will not only save you time and help you feel better quicker, but will also help save the NHS much needed resources.


Your local pharmacist can also offer you advice and guidance on the best treatment for you. Pharmacists are available on every high street and in supermarkets with many open evenings and weekends.


Whilst we are closed, if you need urgent medical assistance please use the NHS 111 service.  If you have an emergency that poses an immediate threat to life, please ring 999.


For further information on available healthcare services, please go to www.nhs.uk or our website www.grantamedicalpractices.co.uk


We wish you all a healthy and peaceful holiday season.

Barley Church
Barley Parish Plan - first review published

The first review of the Barley Parish Plan, which was first produced in 2015, has been published by the Parish Council. 


The Council asked for volunteers to form a committee for this process. 


The Committee has reviewed what has happened over the last five years and how the previously identified village aspirations have been met. 


In tandem with the first review, the Committee compiled a new questionnaire to canvas the current views of villagers over a range of key topics, to allow the plan to be updated and to remain relevant.
