About Us

Find out more about us

Swayne and Partners was established in the 1970’s and has since grown from a single surgery in Bury St Edmunds to a practice operating four independent surgeries covering a wide area of West Suffolk.

Our team provide a friendly, traditional service but we pride ourselves on keeping up to date with innovations in technology and advances in techniques and knowledge.


Each of our surgeries is open six days a week, from 8:30am until 7:00pm Monday to Friday and 9:00am-12:00pm Saturday. Appointments can be made by telephoning your nearest surgery. We also provide our own 24 hour emergency service.


Additionally, our branch in Bury St. Edmunds is open until 10:00pm Monday to Friday. We run a routine clinic there between 7:00pm and 8:30pm and will see emergencies in Bury St Edmunds up until 10:00pm with no out of hours fee. Clients of our other branches are welcome to use this service.
