Welcome To The Peninsula Practice
We are here to help keep you in good health. The practice covers an area known as ‘The Peninsula’ with the addition of Aldeburgh, which stretches from the River Deben in the south to the north of Aldeburgh town. This is a large rural area which inevitably affects the way we work. We are determined to provide an exceptional service where getting appointments, establishing diagnoses, treating promptly and with personal care are priorities for all of us.
The Peninsula Practice has purpose-built surgery buildings at Alderton, Aldeburgh and Orford, all with full disabled access. Alderton and Orford surgeries both have fully operational dispensaries. In addition there is a branch surgery at Hollesley Village Hall on a weekly basis, when you can collect your repeat medications.
The practice as a whole is open every weekday from 8.00am-6.30pm at different sites.
Because of the large practice area, it may be necessary in some situations, to travel a little further to another branch of the surgery within the practice in order to be seen sooner. Whilst you may live close to a particular surgery/branch, you are considered a patient of The Peninsula Practice and as such are welcome at all sites.
We welcome new patients so if you live in the area please get in touch.
