PROPOSED ‘SEAFORD HEALTH HUB’ – INFORMATION FOR PATIENTS
AS SEAFORD AND THE SURROUNDING AREA HAS GROWN OVER THE YEARS, THE TWO GP PRACTICES, OLD SCHOOL SURGERY AND SEAFORD MEDICAL PRACTICE, HAVE INCREASINGLY FOUND THEY DO NOT HAVE THE SPACE AND FACILITIES TO PROVIDE THE PATIENT CARE THEY WOULD IDEALLY LIKE TO AND HAVE BEEN WORKING TOGETHER OVER THE LAST TWO YEARS TO FIND A SOLUTION TO THIS.
AFTER MANY MEETINGS WITH OUTSIDE ORGANISATIONS WE ARE DELIGHTED THAT LEWES DISTRICT COUNCIL HAS APPROVED A MAJOR REDEVELOPMENT SCHEME FOR THE TOWN AND RESIDENTS OF SEAFORD INCORPORATING BOTH MEDICAL PRACTICES AS PART OF A LONG AWAITED ‘HEALTH HUB’ TO BE SITED ALONGSIDE THE DOWNS LEISURE CENTRE IN SUTTON ROAD.
WE ARE VERY EXCITED ABOUT THE OPPORTUNITIES THIS NEW ‘HEALTH HUB’ WILL BRING FOR OUR PATIENTS. THERE ARE A NUMBER OF MATTERS WHICH THE TWO PRACTICES ARE DISCUSSING WITH THE COUNCIL AT THIS EARLY STAGE. BOTH GP PRACTICES WILL CONTINUE TO WORK WITH ALL THOSE INVOLVED TO CONTINUE TO PROVIDE THE BEST CARE FOR THE POPULATION OF SEAFORD AND THE SURROUNDS.
WE WISH TO THANK YOU FOR YOUR CO-OPERATION AND WE WILL CONTINUE TO UPDATE PATIENTS AS THE REDEVELOPMENT EVOLVES.
THE PARTNERS OF OLD SCHOOL SURGERY & SEAFORD MEDICAL PRACTICE
Extended Access Appointments now available please ask at reception for more details
Just a reminder the surgery will be shut between 1pm and 2pm every day. The phone lines will remain open for anything urgent.
A reminder that at East Dean Surgery pick up time for the prescriptions is between 10am - 12.45pm each day - this has been in place since the Summer and allows for the medication to arrive and be checked in to East Dean Surgery accurately and safely before pick up starts.
Next of Kin Forms are still available - it is really important with the new GDPR regulations that we obtain permission from patients to speak to family members.
