EASTER BANK HOLIDAY OPENING TIMES
Due to the current pandemic and in a bid to help support the pressures that are being put on the NHS 111 service and local hospitals, we are opening on the Easter bank holidays - Friday 10th April and Monday 13th April 2020.
Our phones lines and Dispensary will be open for our normal working hours, if you need our help on the day please telephone us on our usual number 01508 530781. Please do not come down to the surgery unless you have a pre-arranged appointment with the GP or Nurse, or you have been given a medication collection time.

In line with the directive from both the Prime Minister and the Department of Health we have to minimise patients’ footfall to the practice as much as possible to avoid the spread of the COVID-19 virus within our community.
As from today we have made the decision to cancel all of our booked routine appointments. This means if you were booked to receive a call or a face to face appointment with a GP or Nurse this has now been cancelled. If you need to speak to a GP about a new or routine medical problem please phone our receptionists, your call will be triaged by the Doctors and we will get back to you as soon as possible with an answer.
This action will prevent the spread of the virus amongst our most vulnerable patient groups, and will reduce the risk to staff as we cannot deliver care for our patients if we are off sick or self-isolating.
Update 18.03.20 11:02
COLLECTING YOUR MEDICATION FROM OUR DISPENSARY TEAM. During our current way of working can we please ask that you only come down to the surgery if you have been invited and have been given a time slot. We cannot answer any questions or queries at our window at this current time. Please contact us by phone if you need to discuss your medication or arrange a collection. We are having to concentrate on those patients that need their medication in the next 5 days.
We need your support for this so that we can continue to look after our patients effectively and safely.

Our practice is run from two sites, one in Long Stratton and one in the village of Newton Flotman. We provide health care needs to over 11,000 patients who are able to access services from either of these two sites. We aim to provide an excellent standard of care in a friendly, approachable and caring environment.
Our service is provided by a team of 8 doctors (2 male, 5 female) several of whom work part-time, for Doctors availability please click HERE. In addition to their work at the surgery the doctors have responsibilities at the local Clinical Commissioning Group, they deliver training to medical students and registrars and are active in Primary Care Research. This would not be possible without the support of our experienced team of nurses, health care assistants, dispensers and administrative staff. Our receptionists provide the first and most important link between the patient and their doctor.

Friends and Family Test
The Friends and Family test has been rolled out by NHS England as a way of gathering your feedback so that we can review the service that we provide on a regular basis. This information is crucial to our practice as we rely on your comments and feedback to help us to continue to provide a service that we can all take pride in.
Please be aware that we may monitor, record, store and use any telephone, email or other communication with you in order to check any instructions given to us, for training purposes, for crime prevention and to improve the quality of our services.
