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.
In view of the pressures currently facing the NHS, we are taking proactive steps in order to try and cope with the anticipated increased demand over the current winter period. With immediate effect, we are therefore reserving some appointments on a daily basis in order to be able to deal with acute respiratory disease and an expected increase in the need to provide home visits to the frail and elderly.
Suffolk GP+ is for people who urgently need a doctor's appointment or are unable to see their GP during normal GP hours. Appointments can be made via our reception during normal opening hours. The service is staffed by local Suffolk GPs and Nurse Practitioners in Wickham Market, Stowmarket, Ipswich, Felixstowe and Leiston and is an NHS service delivered by Suffolk GP Federation. You will be given a booked appointment and will be seen by a suitable local GP or Nurse Practitioner who will have access to your medical records (once your consent is given).
We have recently been advised that due to a shortage of qualified screening staff, that the turn around time for results is currently 9 weeks.

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 the first part of 2018:
- Thursday 8 February
- Wednesday 7 March
- Wednesday 25 April
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.
