Welcome to Newmarket Road Surgery....
There is wheelchair access through the main surgery door at the rear of the building. Patients can be seen in a downstairs consulting room if they cannot manage the stairs.
We do have a small car park at the back of the surgery but it is not large and so there are very limited parking spaces. It does get extremely busy, especially in the mornings, so if you can get to the surgery using other forms of transport apart from the car we would encourage you to do so.
Named Accountable GP
All patients at the surgery are able to see any GP of their choice but each patient has a named accountable GP on their clinical record. If you wish to know who your named GP is, then please ask at reception. The named GP has overall responsibility for you but please feel free to request an appointment with any doctor who may be available.
RETIREMENT OF DR HOPMAN
Here at the surgery we are all extremely sad to inform you that Dr Hopman will be retiring from the practice on her 60th birthday on the 29 August 2016, after a 30 year career in medicine.
She joined Newmarket Road Surgery in October 2009 as a GP Partner. She has therefore been with us for seven years and we know that she will be greatly missed by both her patients and work colleagues. She still has a young teenager at home for a few more years and is looking forward to giving her more time and supporting her husband Jeremy, more than she is currently able to.
We are sure that you will all join with us in wishing her a long and happy retirement with more opportunities to reclaim her life and family time. We do have a retirement card at reception if you would like to sign.
EBOLA ADVICE - OCTOBER 2014
If you are experiencing a high fever or temperature and have been travelling to West Africa (especially Liberia, Guinea or Sierra Leone) in the last 21 days please DO NOT COME DOWN TO THE SURGERY. Instead telephone the surgery on 01603 621006 or NHS 111. You will be able to speak with a doctor who will assess your case and plan further action.
Here is a link to the NHS choices website page on Ebola which will provide much more information
