Dr Cross Retirement
On 31/05/2019 Framlingham Medical Practice will bid a very fond farewell to Dr Linda Cross on her retirement. Dr Cross has been with the practice for a number of years so will much be missed by both staff and patients. We do wish her well for her future endeavours.
Data Breach Fine
You may be aware of the recent fine issued to Bounty, a pregnancy and parenting club, by the Information Commissioner;
Framlingham Medical Practice currently runs a weekly GP clinic at the Guild Hall in Laxfield with Dr Barstow. The practice team at Framlingham Medical Practice are fully committed to delivering the highest standard of care to all of our patients.
Unfortunately due to health and safety restrictions, infection control concerns and more recently IT communication issues, Dr Barstow is now no longer able to deliver this standard of care in the very limited facilities available to him in Laxfield. We therefore plan to close the clinic in Laxfield at the end of January 2019.
Dr Barstow will instead be running an afternoon GP session at the main Framlingham Surgery site where he will have access to our full range of clinical services.
We do of course welcome any comments or feedback that you may have and do apologise for any inconvenience that this closure may cause.
The GP Partners
Framlingham Medical Practice
All correspondence sent to the surgery or handed in at the surgery is opened by staff, including letters addressed to a particular GP. This allows correspondence to be scanned onto the patient record and forwarded to the most appropriate clinician. It also ensures that any urgent matters are dealt with immediately.
All our staff are required to preserve the confidentiality of patients and all matters connected with the Practice at all times.
