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.

Home Visits

If you are too unwell to get to the surgery it is possible to organise a home visit. However, there are better facilities for examining and treating patients at the surgery and so, if at all possible we would recommend you make every effort to come to the surgery.

If a home visit is necessary for medical reasons please try to make the request as early as possible, giving the Receptionist your name, address, telephone number, age and brief details of your illness, in order for the Doctor to determine priorities.

Our Receptionists are trained and bound by the same rules of confidentiality as are the Doctors and Nurses. In some cases the Doctor will telephone before visiting.
