Due to unexpected staff shortages in our Nursing Team, we have a shortage of Nursing appointments.
A new team member has been recruited but they are unable to start until March 2019.
In the meantime we are working very hard to reduce the effect on patients.
We really appreciate and thank you for your cooperation and understanding until the problem is resolved.
We are now booking appointments for this year’s flu clinics.
Please call us or speak to reception to book.

Welcome to Our Surgery
We are a group practice of six GPs who look after patients living in and around North Walsham.
Each doctor provides a full range of medical, maternity, contraceptive, minor surgery and child health surveillance services.
The GPs are on the minor surgery and child health surveillance lists.
We aim to provide patients with a friendly, efficient service with a high standard of care, and welcome ideas that will improve our service for our patients.
As part of our work with North Norfolk Primary Care we are now able to offer improved access with evening and weekend appointments.
Please speak to reception regarding this new service we have available.
Please be aware if you are seen at another location the clinician will ask you for consent to see your medical records, shared through EDSM. Information about this can be found here
If you are unable to make an appointment, please let us know. Over the course of November we lost just under 22 hours of appointment time across 106 appointments due to patients not showing up for their appointments.
