We are now part of Suffolk Primary Care (SPC)
Suffolk Primary Care is an innovative new partnership with 13 like minded Suffolk GP surgeries joining together to deliver care to more than 130,000 patients. The collaboration will see doctors and other practice staff sharing resources and working together to ensure patients continue to receive high quality health care
Access to the Surgery
The surgery was designed with the disabled in mind. The entrance to the surgery, appointments desk, consulting rooms and toilets are suitable for wheelchair access. There is a lift for access to the first floor. There is also an induction loop to assist hearing-impaired patients available at Reception.
Background of practice premises
The surgery was purpose built in 1990 on a plot of land that was originally a tennis court belonging to the Inkerman Public House. We moved into the building on the 1st April 1992. We had a further additional floor extension in 2007 to add an additional 4 consulting rooms. The original ground floor was also refurbished at this time.
We are always happy to accept new patients and can register people who live within our practice area (which covers the town centre and the villages of Henley, Claydon, Bramford, Sproughton and Burstall). Please ask reception for further advice or clarification.
Please make sure that you have proof of identity (e.g. driving licence or passport) and local residence (from within the last 3 months) if you intend to register as a patient.
Patients undergoing treatment or on medication will need to book an appointment with the Doctor before the next repeat prescription is due.
There will be two forms that we require you to complete on registering, one of which is available to download below. You may print this, complete it, and bring it in with you on your first visit to the practice.
