Delivery of the multiple types of flu vaccinations begin early October so we have planned bookable appointments this year.
We are governed by variable delivery dates for vaccines depending on the age group and eligibility of our patients. We appreciate your understanding in this matter – we are doing all we can to ensure you get your flu jab at the earliest opportunity.
Bookable appointments are available using online access, by telephoning the surgery or speaking with reception in person.

The Practice is adapting the way appointments for GPs and Nurse Practitioners are managed. We are moving to a triage system as of 5th August 2019. Please take a copy of the triage system information leaflet which will tell you more. There are paper copies available from reception as well as multiple community locations throughout Aldeburgh.
Please our press release for information about recent discussions about the proposal to merge Church Farm Surgery with The Peninsula Practice.
Regrettably, the Practice will no longer be able to provide appointments for routine ear syringing. Appointments for this procedure will only be available if agreed by a GP or a member of the Practice's Nursing team as part of a hearing aid referral. We apologise for the inconvenience this causes.
There are local private businesses which offer this service for a charge but the Practice is unable to provide recommendations.
Head over to our recruitment page to find out more.
From 13.00 there are no clinicians within the surgery. Reception staff will be happy to help make or amend appointments, but the telephones will be diverted to the 111 service. Pre-ordered prescriptions can be collected during this time.
