GP practices in Suffolk will be open over the Easter weekend - but please don't just turn up

All GP practices in east and west Suffolk will be open on Good Friday and Easter Monday. 

Most practices will also be open on Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th April.

But people are reminded that they need to telephone their practice first and not to turn up unless specifically advised to do so by a member of staff. The aim is to ensure people without coronavirus symptoms can access primary care services as well as support the wider NHS system during this very busy time.

Many local pharmacies will also be open over the Easter weekend. People can check the opening times of their local pharmacy via the NHS website.

Anyone with coronavirus symptoms of a high temperature and new, continuous cough should remain at home and not go their GP practice, pharmacy or hospital and follow the advice on NHS 111 Online.

Dr Mark Shenton, a GP in Stowmarket and chairman of NHS Ipswich and East Suffolk CCG said: “If you or a family member feels unwell firstly visit the NHS 111 Online symptom checker or contact your local pharmacy for help and advice, as many minor illnesses can be treated without needing to see a primary care health professional.

"If you need an appointment call your practice first. Please do not go to the GP practice unless you have been advised by a member of staff to do so. 

"You’ll be asked to give as much information as possible to determine whether an appointment is needed. For many health concerns a telephone appointment with a GP or other health professional will be the most appropriate way forward.”

Dr Christopher Browning, a GP in Long Melford and chairman of NHS West Suffolk CCG said: “Anyone with coronavirus symptoms of a high temperature and new, continuous cough should stay away, remain at home and seek advice from NHS 111 Online. Please do not go to your GP practice, pharmacy or hospital for advice as you risk spreading the virus to others. Anyone who needs to self-isolate and requires an isolation note for their employer can access one at NHS 111 Online; you do not need to ask your GP for this.”

Evening primary care appointments will be available as usual through the Suffolk GP+ service – ask your GP practice during its usual opening hours.
