The Volunteer Transport Scheme >>
Do you live in one of these villages?
Ampton, Badwell Ash, Bardwell, Barnham, Euston, Fakenham Magna, Gt and Lt Livermere, Honington, Ingham, Ixworth, Ixworth Thorpe, Pakenham, Stowlangtoft, Thurston or Troston
We are currently facing a severe shortage of volunteers in the above areas. The transport scheme which has been running now for over 23 years is second to none in the County. Without it, a number of patients who do not have their own cars would have great difficulty attending Ixworth and Stanton surgeries for advice and treatment.
If you have a car and could spare an hour or two occasionally to help a fellow patient, please give your name and telephone number to the receptionist and Sybil, our Head Co-ordinator will get in touch and answer all your questions. We encourage all the drivers to claim the mileage allowance which is offered to help defray their expenses.
Extended hours >>
The practice offers pre-booked appointments with some of the clinical staff between 7-8 am on Tuesday Mornings and between 6:30-8pm on Wednesday and Friday Evenings. Please note there will be No walk-in service available during this time.
We offer travel vaccinations and information for people travelling abroad. Please contact us as soon as possible after booking your trip abroad. In some instances it can take up to three weeks for our practice nurse to get back to you with the details of what vaccinations are required more >>
If you have been advised by the surgery that that your medication review is due please complete the Medication Review Questionnaire. This can be completed using SystmOnline or be downloaded here.
My Care Record >>
Our practice is part of the My Care Record approach which is supporting the work of health and care organisations across the East of England as they respond to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
For example, we are working to make sure doctors, nurses and co-ordination staff at places you may receive advice or treatment can see important information from your GP record. This could include NHS 111 or treatment centres such as the London NHS Nightingale Hospital. This will make it easier and faster for them to deliver effective care.
