You need to call as close to 8.00am as possible for an emergency morning appointment or as close to 1.30pm as possible for an afternoon appointment.

Repeat prescriptions

 Cancelling your Appointment  
If you are unable to attend an appointment, please telephone and leave a message using option 3 to leave a voice mail message or use the link at the bottom of this page to cancel your appointment.

Test results can only be given to the person whose result they are, or (in the case of children under 16 only) their parent or guardian.

The Summary Care Record - this affects you

Please read the section in the right hand column about the summary care record. This affects you and you need to decide if you are happy for your medical records to be uploaded to a centrally held record which other health provders can access.

There are two pharmacies in Haverhill which open for 100 hours a week, one at Tesco's supermarket and one in the surgery building.  Both supply medication to any patient, including those registered at the surgery.

There are four other dispensing chemists in Haverhill -

Sainsburys pharmacy is inside Sainsburys supermarket, Well Pharmacy is on Mill Road near the Drabbet Smock, David Holland chemist is next door to the Clements Surgery and Boots is on the High Street. Opening hours vary and may be found under the heading marked pharmacy, opposite.

Surgery Equipment Fund

Equipment Fund

Donations towards buying surgery equipment can be made via the practice manager or the doctors. The funds are spent only on equipment that will benefit patients.

IMG_3638.JPGIn the last year we have bought several pulse oximeters - devices to measure blood oxygen levels by being clipped to patient's fingers. 
We have also installed new air conditioning in the waiting room,which is very full at times (particularly on a Monday when our demand is very much higher than at other times). The air conditioning was installed in the middle of July, together with new seating and a computerised check-in screen.

We have also bought new otoscopes and opthalmoscopes - devices for looking in the ear and eye - which plug into the wall and which therefore offer brighter light and a better, clearer diagnosis.

Our most recent purchase is a new ecg machine which gives a better reading and allows us to fac your ecg direct to the hospital in an emergency. These machines cost several thousands of pounds and we are grateful to the patient fund for helping us buy it.
