“We have over 25 years experience of delivering high quality healthcare services to patients in Bury St Edmunds and we look forward to continuing working in Brandon.
“The Swan Surgery is committed to making sure patients can easily access the health care services they need and we are determined to make GP services in Brandon the best they can be.”
