Judges Close is a training practice located in the centre of East Grinstead. There are currently 3 GP Partners and 1 salaried GP. It has been a training practice for many years. In addition, a number of qualified GP’s from the Brighton Medical School working at the surgery on placements of up to a year. We also currently employ 3 practices nurses, a healthcare assistant and 2 part time phlebotomists.
We operate from a purpose built structure erected in the 1960's. The building is well-equipped and has been extended a number of times over the years and now provides 6 consulting rooms, 3 treatment rooms, library, counselling room and an on-site pharmacy.
The practice runs many clinics for the management of chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes and offers a wide variety of other medical services including antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery and childhood vaccinations.
The Surgery is a forward looking practice, striving to embrace new ideas and the changing NHS ;whilst continuing to provide a personal service in a calm relaxed atmosphere.
Staff work together with the aim to provide the best possible care for our patients. We endeavor to ensure that patients and their carers are fully involved in their healthcare while being treated equally, fairly and with respect. We are proud to offer the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare to a list size of approximately 7200 patients.
Teaching and 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.
Videoing of 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.
