As part of the Government’s extended hours initiative for General Practice, we have teamed up with four other practices in the Crowborough area (Beacon, Saxonbury House, Rotherfield and Wadhurst) to provide GP cover – including some Practice Nurse sessions, from 8am to 8pm every weekday, and from 8am until 12pm every Saturday.
Our surgery will be providing the extended cover on three Wednesdays, one Thursday, one Friday and one Saturday in each five week rolling rota. The appointments for our sessions can be booked on line or by telephone in the usual way, the system for accessing appointments at the other surgeries for the extended hours is under development but should be running by April 2019.
This new initiative replaces our previous extended hours service, which included a late surgery on a Tuesday evening and early surgery on a Wednesday morning.
This may cause inconvenience for some patients, however, we believe that the partnership with local practices and the involvement of our Nursing, Health Care Assistant and Dispensary teams in the new service will make this a better extended hours service over all.
Information will be updated on both Surgery Sites in due course.
