Everyone must stay at home to help stop the spread of coronavirus.
You should only leave the house for 1 of 4 reasons:
If you need medical help for any reason, do not go to places like a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
If you have symptoms of coronavirus (a high temperature or a new, continuous cough), use the 111 coronavirus service.
If you need help or advice not related to coronavirus:
Read more advice about getting medical help at home.
Antibody testing is being rolled out in Suffolk and North East Essex in a safe and phased way. It has begun within our hospitals. We will keep you updated as to when this test is available to wider staff and patient groups. Meanwhile, please may we request that you do not ask your GP about availability. Please also note that as this is a new disease we don’t yet know if having antibodies means you are immune.
Our standard opening hours are:
Monday - Friday 08:00 - 18:30
Saturday 08:30 - 12:30
Saturdays are for pre-booked appointments only – our telephone lines are not open.
In the case of an out-of-hours emergency call NHS 111
What is NHS 111?
You may be given advice over the phone, asked to visit the base surgery, or visited at home.
Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
Afternoons from 1:30pm until the following morning at 8am for staff training:
