If you are 18 or over and you have still not had your vaccine, you can have this done at Ivry Street Medical Practice. Please call 01473 254718 to make an appointment.



If you are aged 50 and over or fall in the at risk group for a flu vaccination, we will be holding an "Open Flu Clinic" at Barrack Lane Medical Centre on Saturday 23 October between 8am to 4pm. There is no need to book an appointment, but we ask where possible to please attend on your own and remember to wear a face covering.

Named GP

All patients registered at Barrack Lane Medical Centre hold a practice wide registration. This means you can elect to be seen at either Barrack Lane or Stoke Park site. Every patient is allocated a named GP, but this does not prevent you from seeing the clinician of your choice if they have availability. If you would like more details please contact us or ask at reception.

Keep or Cancel

Patients who do not attend for their appointments cost the National Health Service many millions of pounds each year.

If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else.

By giving us as much notice as you can you are helping us to make sure that someone else is given your slot.

Out of Hours

For urgent advice after the surgery has closed, during the night and at weekends dial 111 for the Out of Hours Service for Suffolk. Calls to this service are free of charge from both landlines and mobiles. 

Test Results

Specimens need to be dropped in at the reception desk by 12 noon so that we can send the samples off to the laboratories.  Please ring for results after 2.30pm when the surgery is less busy.


Parkrun Practice


As part of an initiative by the Royal Colleague of General Practitioners to link practices with their local parkrun, Barrack Lane Medical Centre has become a parkrun practice.

The aim of the linkup is to encourage active lifestyles to both patients and staff.

If you are thinking about doing a bit more exercise the parkrun is a great place to start and it is free! You can walk, jog or run the 5k course at Chantry Park.

        • It’s free and easy to take part
        • It will help to improve your health and fitness
        • Provides an opportunity to socialise and be part of a community

You don’t have to be a runner to take part and you can do it at your own pace. It is just about getting out there and being a bit more active. You will find lots of support and encouragement along the way from the marshals and you can even have a cup of tea and slice of cake afterwards. If you don’t feel up to the exercise part of it but would like to be involved in the linkup you could volunteer to be one of the marshals or even come along and cheer everyone on.

To take part or volunteer all you need to do is register for free at:

Once registered you must print off your barcode as you will need to bring that with you on the day.

Park runs take place on Saturday mornings and we would really like you to join us. 

You can walk, jog or run the 5k course or come along to cheer us on!!

Meet us at Christchuch Park at 8.45am. The event starts at 9am.

The parkrun is a FREE, friendly, enjoyable event for all the family.

Anyone over the age of 4, including those who are inactive or have health conditions, are welcome to attend.

Buggies and dogs are welcome!


Staff and patients from the surgery recently took part in the NHS volunteer takeover at parkrun. The takeover was to celebrate the initiative to link surgeries with their local parkrun.

Members of staff volunteered while others took part in the event.   We were also joined by some patients who either walked or ran the 5k route.
