Hethersett SurgeryTel: 01603 977 477
We welcome patients in the villages of Hethersett, Great Melton, Little Melton, Ketteringham, Bawburgh, Wramplingham, Barford and the surrounding areas. A map is available below. If you are unsure whether you live in our practice area please pop in or telephone us for more information.
We ask that new patients fill in a standard NHS registration form as well as our practice patient questionnaire. These are available for downloading from the above Registering Online tab. Please bring the completed forms, one for each family member, to the surgery. Hethersett is a family practice and we would not normally accept just one member of a household.
In accordance with a Government directive, all patients have been allocated a named doctor at the surgery they are registered with. However, you can still book an appointment to see whichever doctor you prefer, or whoever is available at a time most convenient to you. If you would like to know who your named doctor is, please ask at reception when you next visit.
Every patient, over 16, registering with one of our surgeries will be offered a new patient registration medical. The appointment gives you a chance to meet us, have your health checked and bring to light any on-going medical problems or important past medical history before we receive your medical records from your previous surgery. Your appointment will be with either a doctor or practice nurse and you will be asked to bring with you a urine sample for analysis. The new patient registration medical also allows us to provide repeat medication from your previous surgery.
PLEASE NOTE: If you are on regular repeat medication you will need to see one of our doctors BEFORE a prescription can be issued.
If you require further information please telephone 01603 977 477
If you are unsure whether you live in the surgery area please use the "Practice Boundary" tab above and search using your postcode, alternatively contact the surgery.
The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them. You can download the guide below.
A Patient Guide to GP Services
If you wish to register with the surgery and you live in our practice area then you can send us a registration form and a patient questionnaire. The questionnaires are helpful because it can take a considerable time for us to receive your medical records.
Please bring these to us as soon as possible in order that we can begin the registration process. Please make sure that you complete all sections of the form for each person in order that we can process them.
If you have been on regular medication a repeat slip from your previous GP is also very useful.

These fact sheets have been written to explain the role of UK health services, the National Health Service (NHS), to newly-arrived individuals seeking asylum. They cover issues such as the role of GPs, their function as gatekeepers to the health services, how to register and how to access emergency services.
Special care has been taken to ensure that information is given in clear language, and the content and style has been tested with user groups. Open the leaflets in one of the following languages
If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.
You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.
To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
