Appointments can be made via Reception during our usual opening hours. Please note that patients cannot refer themselves to this service.
The service is staffed by local Suffolk GPs and Nurse Practitioners in Bury St Edmunds, Haverhill, Ipswich, Felixtowe, Stowmarket, Leiston and Wickham Market and is an NHS service delivered by the Suffolk GP Federation.
Haverhill GP+ appointments are on a Saturday 9 am - 8.30 pm.

This practice is a teaching practice affiliated to the University of Cambridge Clinical Medical School. We regularly have student doctors on attachment with us. If you do not wish to have a student sitting in during a consultation, please inform the receptionist and your doctor.
In accordance with the General Medical Council and Royal College of General Practitioners guidelines, this practice operates a chaperone policy. This means that whenever your doctor or nurse needs to carry out an intimate examination on any patient regardless of age, sex, gender, or religious beliefs, you will be offered a chaperone. A chaperone is another fully qualified healthcare professional who is there for your benefit and protection. You are free to decline a chaperone if you so wish.
If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please call 01440 841 300 and follow the instructions or alternatively, you can cancel your appointment using SystmOnline, if you are registered with SystmOnline.
Whilst we encourage our patients to come to the surgery, where we have the proper equipment and facilities available, we do appreciate this is not always possible. In this respect, if you do need a home visit, you can help us by calling 01440 841 300 before 11:00.
You may only request a home visit if you are housebound or are too ill to visit the practice. Your GP will only visit you at home if they think that your medical condition requires it and will also decide how urgently a visit is needed. Please bear this in mind and be prepared to provide suitable details to enable the doctor to schedule house calls
To arrange an appointment please call us on 01440 841 300.

Process for booking minor surgery appointment
If you're planning to travel outside the UK, you may need to be vaccinated against some of the serious diseases found in other parts of the world.
Please ensure you leave sufficient time to have all of your travel vaccinations done before your travel date.
You can find out which vaccinations are necessary or recommended for the areas you'll be visiting on these two websites:
Some countries require you to have an International Certificate of Vaccination or Prophylaxis (ICVP) before you enter. For example, Saudi Arabia requires proof of vaccination against certain types of meningitis for visitors arriving for the Hajj and Umrah pilgrimages.
Many tropical countries in Africa and South America won't accept travellers from an area where there's yellow fever unless they can prove they've been vaccinated against it.
Read more about the vaccines available for travellers abroad.
The following travel vaccinations are usually available free on the NHS:
These vaccines are usually free because they protect against diseases thought to represent the greatest risk to public health if they were brought into the country.
You're likely to have to pay for travel vaccinations against:
Yellow fever vaccines are only available from designated centres. The NaTHNaC website can help you find a clinic offering yellow fever vaccination.
There are several things to consider when planning your travel vaccinations, including:
If you're only travelling to countries in northern and central Europe, North America or Australia, you're unlikely to need any vaccinations.
If possible, see your GP at least eight weeks before you're due to travel. Some vaccinations need to be given well in advance to allow your body to develop immunity. Some also involve multiple doses spread over several weeks.
Speak to your GP before having any vaccinations if:
In many cases, it's unlikely a vaccine given while pregnant or breastfeeding will cause problems for the baby. However, your GP will be able to give you further advice about this.
Our trained nursing team is here to advise on diet, travel vaccinations, chronic disease and general health.
