Christmas 2016

*** Important note ***

Christmas for our dispensary is an extremely busy time, we would be grateful if you could allow an extra working day for the team to process your requests for repeat medications at this time. Our aim to provide a 2-working day turnaround can unfortunately be missed when dealing with such an increased volume and our normal standard of service will return to normal very quickly.

We really appreciate your patience on this matter, if you are in doubt, please call ahead to check. Below are the surgery opening times over the festive period.

  • Friday 23 December - normal hours
  • Monday 26 December—closed
  • Tuesday 27 December—closed
  • Monday 2 January 2017—closed

During the above closed hours, you will still be able to access medical advice and/or assistance. Calling our main number will transfer you to the out of hours team. Below is a list of pharmacies in Norfolk & Suffolk with their out of hours open times over the festive period.

The Partners and Staff would like to wish you all a very Happy Christmas.

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.
