COVID-19 VACCINE & BOOSTER

If you have still not had your vaccine, or are due to have your booster, please call our COVID admin line on 01473 694466 to make an appointment.  Vaccinations are being done at Ivry Street Medical Practice but you can also have this done at one of the COVID walk-in Centres (one of which is at Gainsborough Clinic).  Pharmacies also offer COVID Vaccinations.

 


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.
