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.

WE ARE CURRENTLY NOT ACCEPTING NEW PATIENTS

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.

Information on how to register at other surgeries in the area can be found on the NHS Choices website www.nhs.uk.

 

New Patient Registration

register_nowRegistration could not be simpler. Just bring your existing NHS card to the Surgery, and we will start the process of retrieving your old notes from your previous Surgery.

Please note that if you are moving into our area you will be required to produce photographic ID (Passport/Driving Licence/Bus Pass) and evidence of your permanent address (e.g. bank statement/rental agreement/utility bill in your name).  We are unable to register you until we have this information. 

When you visit the surgery you will be given a simple form and questionnaire to complete which are also available in the online pre-registration section below which, if completed beforehand, will save time when you visit the surgery.

All newly registered adults will be offered a Registration Medical Check This will either be with a Practice Nurse, or with a GP if you are already on medication, and before repeat prescriptions are issued.

Patients are registered with the Practice not an individual GP, but can still ask to be seen or treated by a particular practitioner.  Every effort will be made for you to be treated by your Doctor of choice.  However, this will be dependent upon your request being appropriate, reasonable, and that the Doctor requested is available.

It is at the discretion of Doctors whether or not to accept you onto the list, but such discretion can not be discriminatory on the grounds of disability or medical condition, age, appearance, race, gender, social class, religion or sexual orientation.

 

Temporary Registration

If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.

You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.

To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
