Freedom of information
The Freedom of Information Act 2000 recognises that members of the public have the right to know how public services are organised and run, how much they cost and how decisions are made
From 1 January 2005 the Freedom of Information Act has obliged General Practice to respond to requests about information that it holds and is recorded in any format, and has created a right of access to that information. These rights are subject to some exceptions which have to be taken into consideration before deciding what information it can release.
This organisation is committed to providing a safe, comfortable environment where patients and staff can be confident that best practice is being followed at all times and the safety of everyone is of paramount importance.
All patients are entitled to have a chaperone present for any consultation, examination or procedure where they feel one is required. This chaperone may be a family member or friend. On occasions you may prefer a formal chaperone to be present, i.e. a trained member of staff.
Wherever possible we would ask you to make this request at the time of booking appointment so that arrangements can be made and your appointment is not delayed in any way. Where this is not possible we will endeavour to provide a formal chaperone at the time of request. However occasionally it may be necessary to reschedule your appointment.
Your healthcare professional may also require a chaperone to be present for certain consultations in accordance with our chaperone policy.
If you would like to see a copy of our Chaperone Policy or have any questions or comments regarding this please contact the practice manager.
You can make and cancel appointments from this website. Contact reception to get your log in number.
You can order repeat prescriptions directly from this website. You will need to obtain an log-
Patients who are violent or abusive to Doctors, Staff or other persons on practice premises may be removed from the practice list and referred to Suffolk Commissioning Group for registration at another practice.
GP mean earnings
All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (e.g. average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.
The average pay for GPs working in Ixworth Surgery in the last financial year was £69,691 before tax and National Insurance. This is for 2 full time GPs and 4 part time GPs who worked in the practice for more than six months.
However it should be noted that the prescribed method for calculating earnings is potentially misleading because it takes no account of how much time doctors spend working in the practice, and should not be used to form any judgement about GP earnings, nor to make any comparison with any other practice.
Infection Control Annual Statement
The Practice is committed to the control of infection. Our aim is to keep a clean and tidy surgery to promote a safe environment for staff, patients and visitors in accordance with national and local guidelines. This statement has been produced in line with the Health and Social Care Act 2008 and details the practice’s compliance with guidance and our Infection Control Action Plan for the coming year.
