There are two surgeries on the peninsula, one in Shotley and one in Holbrook.

Both surgeries have Dispensaries which will issue prescribed drugs to eligible patients (if you live within one mile of an independent Pharmacy we are not permitted to dispense to you).

Both surgeries are well equipped, purpose designed buildings and are conveniently situated in the centres of their villages on bus routes.

Wheelchair access, disabled toilets and baby changing facilities are provided at both premises. In addition to the main surgeries, there is a surgery held at the Royal Hospital School, Holbrook, for pupils only.


Training Days - The next training afternoon will be on Thursday, 16 November 2017 when the surgery will be shut from 1 pm.  Please ring 111 for advice if your query cannot wait until the following day.  In an emergency, dial 999.
Further training days are on 13 December 2017, 8 February 2018, 7 March 2018

Flu vaccinations - If you have missed our flu clinics but still need a vaccination, please contact our reception and ask to book into one of our catch up clinics. If you are over 65, you have automatic entitlement, those patients under 65 who are identified as eligible will be contacted by letter prior to the clinics starting.  Please note that if you are not elgiible, we are unable to give private vaccinations at the surgery.

Fidget Quilts - More than 225 fidget quilts to the dementia unit at Ipswich Hospital as well as Suffolk Family Carers.  They are also being used in A&E to calm patients with many varfied diagnoses whilst waiting so if anyone can spare time to make these, please ask in practice for details.
