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

Dr Rob Mindham, Partner at Howard House

Howard House Surgery Patient Participation Group 

The purpose of a PPG is to provide a way in which patients can be involved in the way the Practice operates. The PPG has been just a small group of patients who meet about 5 times a year but this has quite recently been expanded with a larger group of patients who have registered to be involved by email. The group discusses a range of issues, as can be seen in the enclosed previous agendas. Items include: changes in the way the Surgery works, information leaflets, health campaigns, patient surveys, health developments in the area, etc.. We work when we can in collaboration with the Patient Groups of the other three GP Practices in Felixstowe.  We publish a Newsletter several times a year (see the other tab on this part of the website). Our meetings are usually held on a Tuesday evening 1800-1930hrs in the Training Room above the Surgery. The meeting is supported by a Doctor from the Practice, the Practice Manager and a member of the Admin team to take the minutes.

The Chair of the PPG is currently Alan Rose who may be contacted by email on or put a note in the mail box in the surgery lobby or call the Chair on : 07986-714186
