Noticeboard

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.

If you are a carer, you can ask to be included on the Carers’ Register, which will entitle you to, amongst other things, a flu injection and an annual health check. Please complete the form below and return it to the surgery.

Information for Carers

There is a wealth of information on NHS Choices about carers and caring. Below are some links into the site that we hope you will find useful.

  • Caring for a parent

    Watch this video on: caring for a parent at home

  • Telling people

    Caring responsibilities can make it difficult to maintain friendships or develop new ones. Telling your friends you're a carer is important so they understand and can support you.

  • Taking a break

    Caring for someone can be a full-time job, but it's essential that you take time out for yourself too. Read our guide to accessing breaks and respite.

  • Housing and carers

    Do you know your tenancy rights as a carer? Are you aware of all your care at home options? Do you need tips on moving someone around the home?
