Stay safe in the heat

Our patient list is closed to new patients
Due to pressures on the surgery while we endeavour to recruit we have agreed with NHS England and HealthEast (Great Yarmouth & Waveney Clinical Commissioning Group) that we will close our patient list for six months from 13th June 2017.
This means that we will not be able to receive new registrations for patients with the strict exceptions of:
- immediate family members of existing patients (e.g. relatives at the same address and new babies) and
- patients moved to care homes with who we have a contract to provide care.
If you are new to the area or need to change surgeries, you can find information on local surgeries taking new patients at NHS Choices.
We are sad to say goodbye to Dr Innes
Dr Innes will be leaving Falkland Surgery at the end of June. She has been with the practice for several years and has built some excellent relationships with her patients. We know that her patients will miss her as much as we will.
While we are recruiting new staff including doctors to care for you, please bear with us. We have some locum cover for the next few weeks while we endeavour to find permanent replacements for both Dr Innes and Dr Penn. Our regular locums for the next few weeks are Dr Singh, Dr Maleki and Dr Ruddock.

We are pleased to announce that we have new staff!
Hayley Stevenson is joining the practice from the 12th June 2017 in the new role of Primary Care Practitioner. This will be a supporting role to the GP team and will help the service by seeing patients who require care at home. It will be a few days before Hayley is up and running, however some of our housebound patients may see her on visits with the team while she is finding her feet and getting to know the practice.
Please keep an eye on the surgery notice boards, the website and our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/bradwellgps) for information about how we are progressing in developing your service. If you have any questions, please contact us by writing to the surgery or emailing email@example.com.
