Christmas Closures and Prescription Deliveries
Christmas is fast approaching. The surgery will be closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day. Over this busy period we would be grateful if you could order your prescriptions in good time and allow as much time as possible to enable the team to prepare these for collection prior to the Christmas break.
Christmas deliveries to local Post Offices and home deliveries will take place on Monday 23rd and Monday 30th December instead of the normal Tuesday deliveries. To ensure orders can be completed in time for delivery please can you order your prescriptions a week in advance.
We thank you for your patience and support over this busy time.
Merry Christmas to you all.

Suffolk GP+ is for people who urgently need a doctor's appointment or are unable to see their GP during normal GP hours.
Appointments can be made via Reception during usual opening hours. Please note: patients cannot refer themselves to this service.
the service is staffed by local Suffolk GPs and Nurse Practitioners in Bury St Edmunds, Haverhill, Ipswich, Stowmarket, Felixstowe, Leiston and Wickham Market and is an NHS service delivered by the Suffolk GP Federation.
You will be given a booked appointment and will be seen by a suitable local GP or nurse who will have access to your medical records (once consent is given).
The Community Navigator visits Stanton Surgery every Friday morning. Please ask at reception and they will point you in their direction.
A Suffolk Family Carer GP Adviser visits Stanton Surgery on the second Wednesday morning of each month. If you are a family carer and would like information about how you can access support and advice about looking after your own well-being please feel free to approach them or ask a member of the surgery staff for a direct referral.
You are not alone - Suffolk Family Carers look forward to supporting you.

April 2017 - Hopton Surgery is now closed. All services have been moved to the Stanton Surgery. We are pleased to be able to leave the defibrillator at Hopton for the benefit of the village.
Volunteer and community transport
For patients that are unable to get to the Stanton Surgery site for appointments, there are 3 options that may be of interest. There is a volunteer group being formed to offer assistance getting over to Stanton from Hopton and the immediate surrounding villages. The contact details are provided by the GPs whilst the group is gathering further support and volunteers.
Secondly there is the Rickinghall Community Bus service which serves villages that our practice population covers. This is a chargeable service of 50p/mile but further details can be found below and in the surgery waiting room.
Thirdly there is the Connecting Communities transport (formerly Dial-a-Ride) service commissioned by Suffolk County Council. Details can be found by clicking the links below:
