Bungay Medical Practice is the sole practice in the market town of Bungay, situated on the border between Norfolk & Suffolk. It lies in a beautiful part of East Anglia on the edge of the Norfolk Broads and 30 minutes drive from the Suffolk coast. It is 15 miles from the City of Norwich and there is a fast rail link to London (90 minutes from Diss). There are two good District General Hospitals in Norwich and Gorleston, and we are very closely linked to the University of East Anglia, teaching all five years of medical students.

We are a postgraduate and undergraduate teaching practice and a research practice with approximately 10,800 patients split between Norfolk and Suffolk. We dispense to around 3,500 patients. The patients are currently cared for by a team of seven partners, two salaried GPs and eight nurses. We are a PMS practice.
