EBOLA ADVICE - OCTOBER 2014
If you are experiencing a high fever or temperature (over 38 degrees) and have been travelling to, or been in contact with, anyone who has visited West Africa (especially Liberia, Guinea, Sierra Leone or Nigeria) or any other effected area in the last 21 days then please DO NOT ATTEND THE SURGERY.
Please telephone the surgery on 01603 782155 or NHS 111. You will be able to speak with a doctor who will assess your case and plan further action.

Thank you for your help and co-operation with this matter.
As of 1st Jan 2015 text reminders will be sent by the practice when an appointment is booked, one day prior to the appointment and also if a patient does not attend. Please let us know if your details change and ensure we have a current mobile number. This also applies to patients who may have a parent or partner's mobile number assigned to their record. This is to try and reduce the number of missed appointments.
We are a friendly practice located near the Norfolk Broads offering services to over 8,300 permanent residents, and the many people that come to the central Broads area during the summer months. We have six GP's (3 male and 3 female) and 3 Nurse Practitioners as well as Healthcare Assistants and Phlebotomists. Community Nursing and Therapy services are also based in our building along with a Midwifery team from the hospital.
We are a teaching practice and offer training for Registrars and Medical Students and are also registered to undertake research activities. We are constantly looking at ways to improve our performance so that we offer the best service possible to our patients.
We have an active Patient Participation Group who help us to review and develop our services. In addition to everything you need to know about the practice you will also find a wealth of health-related information by clicking on the 'Encyclopaedia' button in the menu on the right hand side.
The practice now offers patients the facility to view areas of their records online. The areas patients will be able to access will include a summary of information relating to medications, allergies and adverse reactions. As well as viewing this information, there will be the facility to download and print it. This is available by registering with SystmOnline through reception.
