Welcome to The Debenham Group Practice
Welcome to our surgery website where we hope you will quickly benefit from a user friendly layout and a wealth of information about your healthcare services.
Flu Vaccinations 2016
If you are a patient at the Debenham Group Practice and are 65 or over, or suffer from Heart Disease, Asthma, Diabetes or Renal Disease, have a reduced immune system, are a carer or are pregnant we recommend that you have a flu vaccination. Our Flu Clinic dates for 2016 are:
Wednesday 5 October 9.00am – 4.00pm Debenham Community Centre - walk in clinic (no appointment needed)
Tuesday 11 October 3.00pm – 6.00pm Grundisburgh Surgery - appointment required
Saturday 22 October 9.00am - 12.00noon Otley Surgery - appointment required
At all our flu clinics this year, members of the Patient Participation Group (PPG) will be helping to raise funds towards the purchase of a Blood Pressure Monitor. If anyone is able to donate raffle prizes that would be very much appreciated – these can be dropped off in advance at any of the three receptions. Also – please make sure you remember to bring some change with you to the flu clinic so that you can buy lots of tickets!
We have recently completed some internal refurbishment works at Otley. Dispensary is now located in the entrance foyer - patients no longer have to go into the main waiting room if they are just collecting their medication or dropping off a repeat prescription etc. Access to Reception is now within the waiting room area, where a screen has also been erected for pateint confidentiality. We apologise for any inconvenience that may have occured during these works.

Please note that as of 1st April 2016, the prescription cost has been increased to £8.40 (per item).
One Click Away
You can now access a number of services online. Ordering a repeat prescription or sending us your comments are both just a click away. And if you’re not yet registered with us you can download the necessary forms here too.
In order to continue to provide a high level of care and service to our patients, the doctors and staff attend monthly training and education afternoons organised by the Ipswich & East Suffolk CCG. As a consequence, the whole surgery will therefore be closing on the afternoon of the following days in 2016.
- 27 October
- 23 November
- 14 December
On these days, from 1.00pm, as the entire practice will be closed, you will not be able to contact the practice by telephone. All urgent calls will be dealt with by the Out of Hours Service Provider, Care UK. As you will not be able to collect your medication on these afternoons, please make arrangements to collect at another time, thank you.
