IMPORTANT MESSAGE - ORDERING REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS ONLINE - If you want to collect your prescription from a pharmacy rather than the surgery you MUST TELEPHONE THE PHARMACY  to arrange this BEFORE SUBMITTING YOUR REQUEST. (Telephone numbers for local pharmacies are listed in the "Prescriptions" page accessed via the prescriptions tab in the homepage menu)

28 Day Prescribing - With effect from 1st April 2014, Mount Farm Surgery will be moving towards a 28 day prescribing cycle. There are many good reasons for this change: see details within the prescribing section for more information.


There is a new Central NHS Computer System called the Summary Care Record (SCR). The Summary Care Record is meant to help emergency doctors and nurses help you when you contact them when the surgery is closed. We are planning to upload our patient records to the SCR by April, as we are obliged to under our NHS contract. However, if you have strong views on this you can opt out by completing an opt out form. Please see the SCR entry under further information to the right hand side of this page for further information. This will tell you more about what information will be held on the SCR.



Dr Chris Hodgson is retiring at the end of January 2014. He would like to take this opportunity to thank all his patients for their support, and wish them good health in the future.

Lost Appointments:

In March 67 GP and 74 nurse appointments were lost because patients booked them then did not keep the appointments. This is equivalent to 5 clinical days. This is an appalling waste of appointments that other patients could have used. The Partners respectfully request that any patient intending not to keep a booked appointment cancels it in time to let us offer it to another patient. Please help us to meet the high demand for appointments by not letting them be wasted in this way. Thank you.


A&E West Suffolk Hospital


Our local A&E is currently being overwhelmed by patients with minor problems. Please help us to maintain A&E for those who really need it - patients with life threatening emergencies.


If you have a minor problem telephone the surgery during our normal hours, or the out of hours service when we are closed (111) Your problem will be assessed, and dealt with appropriately.


Thank you.
