Noticeboard

Dr Kathryn Brooks has now retired. Her patients will be informed of their new named GP at the next appropriate interaction with the practice. Should you express a wish to change the GP to whom you have been allocated we will do our best to accommodate your wishes.

 

WE ARE CURRENTLY NOT ACCEPTING NEW PATIENTS

East Grinstead is undergoing a significant rise in the number of people living in the area and we are finding it difficult to sustain a workload that is safe and manageable. It is with regret that as a result we are no longer able to register new patients and have notified NHS England of this decision.

In the meantime, if you need to register with a GP surgery in East Grinstead, please contact NHS England on 01293 729298, so that they can arrange for you to be allocated to a local GP surgery.

 

 

Dear Patient,

 

 

As part of our care for you we are reviewing repeat prescriptions.

 

Some prescription items may have changed to an unbranded (or to the NHS more cost-effective branded) version of exactly the same drug by a different name.

 

Your dose will remain exactly the same and you should not experience any difference in effect or any adverse effects.

 

You may notice a change in the appearance of your new medicine, which does not affect the action of the drug in any way.

 

Your medication records will be changed automatically, so please order your next prescription in the usual way. It will help the NHS to save money, if you could use up any remaining medication first and then continue with the new one.

 

Your Healthcare Team

Teaching & Training

Judges Close Surgery is a recognised teaching practice and benefits from the services of GP registrars. These are fully qualified doctors with extensive hospital experience who hope to enter general practice and will spend time at the surgery gaining experience. You may be offered an appointment with one of these doctors or asked whether a GP Registrar may be present when you consult your own GP. If you object to this, they will be asked to leave during your consultation.

 

Video Consultations

There may be times when the Registrar will be videoing their consultations for their learning program. This is a powerful tool in developing effective communication skills when viewed by their trainer alongside the Registrar and remains completely confidential.

We will always ask you for your permission and ask you to sign a consent form beforehand and then again after the consultation.

You will be given the choice to decline this offer, and your decision will be fully respected and will in no way affect the care you are given.
