Welcome to the Website for Fressingfield & Stradbroke practices
We are currently experiencing unprecedented demand for appointments, and please ask that you bear with us during this very busy time for the practice.
We would really appreciate it if you could complete our Friends and Family Test to say whether you would recommend the service that we provide to your Friends & Family. We submit the outcome of this test to NHS England on a monthly basis to show how happy patients are with our service. Some patients have responded to say they are very unlikely to recommend us, not because they are unhappy with our service but because their family do not live in the catchment area. We realise the question can be misleading but unfortunately it is standard wording that we must use, the question is asking are you happy with our service.
Patients can now "drop in" at a time convenient to them to Fressingfield and take their own blood pressure without having to make an appointment. If you suffer from high blood pressure it is recommended you have your blood pressure taken every 6mths. If you do not have high blood pressure but are over 40 years it is recommended you have a blood pressure check every 5yrs.
This website is used to present all our patients with up to date news and information about our practice. We will keep it current with any developments or other details that we feel are relevant to you.
As well as a source of information about our practice, the staff and the services we provide, we hope you will use this website as a useful resource for other health-related information. Please have a look around and do send us some feedback if you like (you can send us an e-mail by clicking on the 'Contact Details' link and scrolling to the bottom of the page). We can use your ideas to improve our online services and further develop the content of this site. You can scroll down for more services.
We may be small but that does not stop us having big ambitions; we are a very high achieving practice, consistently scoring well in the QOF (Quality & Outcomes Framework), and the National GP Patient Survey; 97% of respondents were satisfied with the overall service that we provide.We are very proud of the service that we provide and continually strive to improve.
