Stourview will be closed on the following days:
Thursday 22nd March 2018
Friday 6th April 2018
Monday 9th April 2018
Friday 13th April 2018
Wednesday 18 April 2018
The Camps Road surgery will be open as normal.
We apologise for any inconvenience.
Haverhill Family Practice
It is with regret we have contacted NHS England and the West Suffolk CCG to ask for permission to temporarily close our list due to the amount of patients we have currently and additional patients wishing to register.
We are currently working under great pressure with limited resources and this cannot be sustained. For both patient and doctor safety we have temporarily closed our list from Friday 22.12.2017.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause you, but we have to take these steps to safeguard our doctors, nurses, staff and patients.
Thank you for your consideration to this decision.
Haverhill Family Practice
A Range of Health Care Professionals
Due to a current high demand of patients requesting appointments, our reception staff will ask you how best they can redirect your call and ask you for brief details of your condition to be able to put you with the most appropriate clinician. We have a wide range of health care professionals here at the surgery that we can offer you an appropriate appointment with . We have doctors, nurses, a nurse practitioner, emergency care practitioners, health care assistants, a phlebotomist and advanced musculoskeletal practitioners to help you with your current needs. If we cannot offer you an appointment, we can try and offer you GP+ which is based in Haverhill on a Saturday or in Bury St Edmunds and other Suffolk locations during the week.
Our flu vaccinations have now been delivered - so call in to make an appointment or alternatively we are running daily walk in clinics for on the spot vaccination. So if you are over 65 or under 65 with a chronic condition or are on our records are a carer, you are entitled to a free flu vaccination. This year our flu vaccination protects you against 4 strains of the flu virus. Don't delay, book or pop in today to be vaccinated! Vaccination is available at both our Camps Road and Stourview surgeries.
Please note Language Line is available should you require assistance with translation – please inform Reception if you require this service.
Over 96% of patients attended their appointments in February - Thank you!!
However, there were still 228 appointments not attended which equals 47.5 hours of clinical time wasted and a cost to the NHS of £ 6,384.00
Please help us to treat as many people as possible by informing us if you are unable to attend your appointment.
From January 2017 the practice went over to electronic prescribing. This means that whenever you have a prescription to collect, you will collect this from your chosen pharmacist and not from the GP surgery. Therefore we need to know your designated or chosen pharmacy - please speak to one of our receptionists to update your pharmacy details.
Thank you for your attention to this.
To contact the surgery by email please follow the link on our 'Contact Details' tab or alternatively email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
You can book your own appointments online to avoid the rush on the telephones or at reception. Before you book for the first time you will need to come into reception to get a user name and password.
After that, click on the title above or the link at the bottom of the page, and then follow the instructions onscreen.
Access for patients with special needs
The practice has access for wheelchair users and an adapted downstairs WC. Patients may be dropped off outside our entrance and there is an on-site wheelchair available.
Repeat prescriptions are now only issued for ONE MONTH. This brings us into line with NHS and Dept of Health recommendations (and with other practices), and is part of the NHS drive to reduce wastage. If prescriptions are issued for 2 months and then the prescription is changed the cost of the wasted medication can be enormous.
We appreciate patients would prefer to have to collect medication less often, but please remember that most pharmacies are happy to hold your prescription for you and to routinely dispense and even deliver your medication every month.
Remember to that a prepay form for prescription charges costs only slightly more than three prescriptions, and lasts for three months.
The NHS has HUGE savings to make in the next few years if we are to continue to have the service we do. This is a part of that saving. Please help us with this. We appreciate your understanding.
