- Telephone triage
- Face-to-face appointments at Drovers House in Bury St Edmunds
- Home visits where clinically necessary
Please telephone 111 if you need these services

The surgery will be open as normal on Thursday 5th November at 8am.
We have an urgent situation with being able to complete some blood tests. This is caused by the hospital supplier, Roche, being unable to deliver some chemicals needed for this process. This is a national problem.
We need to prioritise clinically urgent tests. This means that if you are having a regular blood test, it may be delayed. We are very sorry about this.
If you are worried and you have been told your blood test is urgent, please contact the person who referred you, your GP or your Consultant.
Managing queries will mean that your Practice or Hospital team is busier than ever – please be as patient as possible – they will be working incredibly hard to support you.
National teams are working with Roche to sort this problem out and we will keep everyone updated as the situation changes.
We do understand that this may worry you and is very inconvenient, so please do get in touch with our PALS team if you wish to discuss this further. Their number is: 0800 389 6819

Coronavirus (COVID-19) – Update for patients
Due to the coronavirus outbreak how you contact us will be different at the moment. This is to limit face-to-face contact whenever possible to help stop the spread of coronavirus. If you have Covid-19 symptoms such as a persistent cough, high temperature or loss of taste or smell please DO NOT come to the surgery. Please remain at home and request a Covid-19 test by either going to the https://www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test website page or call 119. You need to self-isolate for 10 days and all household members for 14 days, unless your test is negative.
If you need to speak to a doctor you will be offered a telephone or video triage appointment. The doctor will determine if a face-to-face appointment is required and arrange this when appropriate.
If you are asked to attend the surgery a face covering must be worn. Please use the hand sanitiser provided and maintain social distancing at all times.

For patients that are unable to get to the Stanton Surgery site for appointments, there are 3 options that may be of interest.

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.
