WE HAVE SUSPENDED ONLINE BOOKING OF APPOINTMENTS IN VIEW OF THE CURRENT GUIDANCE REGARDING CORONAVIRUS.
WE ARE MINIMISING THE NUMBER OF FACE TO FACE APPOINTMENTS TO KEEP OUR PATIENTS AND STAFF SAFE. ALL APPOINTMENTS BOOKED WILL BE A TELEPHONE CONSULTATION INITIALLY. THE DOCTOR OR NURSE WILL PHONE YOU AND IF THEY FEEL YOU NEED TO BE SEEN YOU WILL BE INVITED TO COME INTO THE SURGERY FOR A FACE TO FACE APPOINTMENT.
PLEASE ONLY ENTER THE SURGERY IF YOU HAVE AN APPOINTMENT. FOR ALL OTHER QUERIES PLEASE CALL THE SURGERY.
PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND THE SURGERY IF YOU SUSPECT YOU MAY HAVE CORONAVIRUS. THIS IS FOR THE PROTECTION OF OUR MOST VULNERABLE PATIENTS.

Welcome to Heacham Group Practice
This is a long-established Practice, which was first started in 1952. We work from two purpose-built surgeries at Snettisham, which was opened in 1990 and Heacham Surgery, which opened in 1993 and involved the modernisation of an old farmhouse with a large, purpose-built extension.
We provide care for the villages of Heacham, Snettisham, Sedgeford, Fring, Inmere & Ringstead.
We have approximately 8,000 patients registered with us. This is a retirement area and consequently a large proportion of our patients are aged over 65. In the summer months we also provide care for a large influx of temporary residents.
Our Promise to You
It has always been our aim to provide first class care in a friendly manner. We will provide you with the best possible practice services and we will treat you with consideration and courtesy whatever your age, sex, race or illness. Health care is a partnership between patients and the practice. We both need to help each other so that you can receive the finest possible care. We will keep your records and everything learned about you during your consultation confidential. Your privacy will be respected at all times.
Our surgeries at Snettisham and Heacham have suitable access for disabled patients. Both surgeries have ground floor consulting rooms, treatment rooms, waiting areas and disabled toilets. There is also a wheelchair available at both surgeries for our patients use.
**NEW** Improved GP Access Appointments
You may have heard in the news that GP surgeries across the country are launching a new service to offer additional appointments to patients across evenings and weekends.
Heacham Group Practice is exited to announce that we are now one of the 21 local GP surgeries who are working together to offer additional appointments to our patients. For more information please see the Appointments page for more information.
