A thank you…………………..


Dr Head would like to thank all of you who sent cards, presents and donations for his retirement.


‘It was very humbling to read some of your comments and I am just so grateful I have been able to have been in practice at the Mendlesham Health Centre and Manor Farm Surgery Bacton for all these years’


Dr Paul Head.

News from the Friends of Mendlesham Health Centre (Incorporating Bacton Surgery)


Following consultation with the Practice and patient surveys the 'Friends' have agreed to make refurbishment of the waiting room at Mendlesham their next project.  This will complement other improvements due to be undertaken by the Practice.  Work sponsored by the 'Friends' will include the creation of a more user friendly reception area, replacement of floor covering to comply with current NHS health and safety requirements, and the upgrading of seating.  Improvements will also be made to information display areas, and the TV message system.   Once completed, the architect's plans will be displayed in the waiting area prior to the tendering process and commencement of the project.


This work is due to the generosity of past and present patients of the Practice including memorial donations and bequests.
