The practice also provides care for boarding pupils at Barnardiston Hall Prep School and Broadlands Hall Special School. We also look after patients in Eastcotts Nursing Home, The Meadows and The Swallows and can provide occupational health services and private medicals on request.
The surgery offers a range of private services including:
Adoption and fostering examination
Private sick notes
A standard scale of fees applies to these services – please ask at reception.
Reflexology is available at the surgery by private arrangement: An experienced local reflexology practitioner, Eileen Stevenson, uses a room in the adjoining surgery every week, and appointments can be made with her by request at reception. We will then put your details into her diary. Reflexology can be helpful in many conditions, including in babies with colic who sometimes respond after only one short treatment session. Reflexology involves specialised massage to the soles of the feet, and usually takes between half an hour and an hour depending on your case.
We have one Link Worker attached to our surgery who is here a couple of mornings a week. One is based at Haverhill Family Practice main site and the other at Stourview, the branch site. Your doctor can refer you to them if they feel it is appropriate.
