Message to patients

We are doing our best under very difficult circumstances. Our doctors are working more than 12 hours a day and sometimes up to 14/15 hour days.

We will NOT tolerate the abuse that our staff are currently experiencing.

Patients will receive a warning letter in the first instance, and will be removed from our list if there is any recurrence of such behaviour.

Dr J C Dawe


Unfortunately, we have a full time GP partner absent from the surgery at short notice.

Please bear with us; we are trying to book locum cover to provide additional appointments.

 

If you are advised to seek alternative healthcare services such as a minor injuries unit or A&E this is because this is the most appropriate and safest form of treatment for your condition.

Thank you for your support and cooperation.


Evening and weekend access to GP appointments

GP appointments are now available during the evening and at the weekend for people registered with a GP in Horsham and Mid Sussex.

This means that both routine and urgent appointments are available at a local hub during weekday evenings and on a Saturday and Sunday, to make sure local people get the health help and support they need.

NHS Horsham and Mid Sussex CCG, working in partnership with local patients and clinicians, designed the service. The appointment hubs are run by Alliance for Better Care Ltd, the local GP Federation.

How to book an evening or weekend appointment at a hub:

Appointments can be booked through your own GP practice in the normal way, during normal opening hours.

Clinicians working at the hubs will be able to access your medical records with your agreement. You will be asked before any information is shared and can decline if you wish.

Your help to design this new service

In preparation for this additional, improved access to GP care, we sought the views and experiences of local patients and the public through a survey. The results can be found here:
