A letter from the GP Surgeries in Felixstowe


As I am sure you are aware, we are all facing difficult uncertain times with the current coronavirus pandemic.  The advice for many older people and those at risk is to stay at home to prevent contracting the virus.  If you feel you would be unable to support yourself by staying at home, I am delighted to advise that help is available locally.


Felixstowe Helping Hands have a team of volunteers who would be able to help you by doing shopping, dog walking, collecting prescriptions etc.  They will also provide phone calls to reassure and to combat loneliness.  They can be contacted on 07479 556736


We also have social prescribers in Felixstowe, Hayley and Debbie, who are also able to put you in touch with other support services.   Hayley can be reached on 07879 602327 and Debbie on 07917 324861.


With very best wishes


Yours sincerely



Dr Paul Driscoll, Partner at Haven Health

Dr Steven Feltwell, Partner at The Grove Medical Centre

Information for Carers

We actively try to support those people who are the main carer for family members who are suffering from a long term illness or disability.

If you are looking after someone with ongoing physical or mental health problems, please inform a member of our Reception team and we will ensure that your records are updated accordingly. If you are happy for us to do so, we can also pass your details onto other organisations and agencies that can provide help and support.

Suffolk Family Carers - Living Fuller lives

Suffolk Family Carers is a registered Charity in touch with 14,239 Carers in Suffolk. For a quarter of a century, we have been providing a range of services to Family Carers as well as raising awareness of Family Carer issues with our partners in health and social care. We ultimately seek to minimise the hardships, difficulties and other challenges Family Carers face, to raise awareness of Family Carers and ensure their voices are heard throughout Suffolk. From a shoulder to cry on to providing information and guidance, we are here to help. During recent years, demand for our service has grown as the number of Family Carers has increased and, as a result of this, we have developed new and innovative services focused on preventative interventions in partnership with Suffolk County Council, The NHS and The Big Lottery. Working strategically is key to our organisation if appropriate and timely services are to be developed to support Family Carers, and with this in mind we have been working closely with the new ‘Triangle of Care’ in Suffolk which joined Norfolk and Suffolk Foundation Trust and The Carers Trust to provide collaborative and relevant support and respite for Family Carers. We are working on a new project providing monthly ‘drop-in’ sessions for Family Carers of hospital in-patients and this is already proving to be a helpful support.
