IMPORTANT NOTICE

Monday 30th October 2017

With effect from 12 noon

Due to the high volume of patients wishing to register at this surgery, we are temporarily capping our list in order that we can continue to provide a safe and timely service to existing patients.

If you are part of the Cornwallis Group of practices, including Essenden Road, who have received a letter saying you are out of area, please call the helpline number below as some of these letters have been sent out incorrectly.

01424 735666

Email: cornwallisplazaenquiries@nhs.net 

If you are a new patient to the area wishing to register at a practice, please contact the allocation line on 01424 735652.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

When you attend for your next appointment why not use our new checking in service? As you walk into the waiting room you will see the new automatic check-in ahead of you, to the left. Just touch the screen and follow the instructions. To use it, all you need to know is your date of birth! It really is that simple!

PLEASE NOTE: GP appointments are 10 minutes in duration.

From the 1st September 2017 you will no longer be able to order repeat prescriptions via the surgery email address.

We offer Online Patient Access which will enable you to book appointments and order repeat prescriptions.

To register, please visit the surgery to complete a registration form, bringing with you two forms of identification, one clearly stating your address.

When We Are Closed

The surgery provides care 8am - 6.30pm Monday to Friday. Out-of-hours is defined as 6.30pm - 8.00am weekdays plus weekends, bank holidays and public holidays.

All calls out-of-hours to the surgery will be diverted to the emergency out-of-hours provider IC24. You can also call IC24 directly by dialling 111.

Via this service you can access nursing care, palliative care and GP advice, reviews and visits for urgent care not requiring attendance at A&E. The out-of-hours service is not for routine appointments, chronic disease management, hospital referrals or repeat prescriptions.

In the case of a clear emergency such as a suspected heart attack or stroke call 999 immediately. 

Our local A&E Department is at the Conquest Hospital, The Ridge, St Leonards-on-Sea, East Sussex, TN37 7RD.

Please remember that A&E is for true accidents and emergencies. If you attend with a minor illness you will wait for a long time to be seen and also delay care to those who need it. If you are unsure whether you should go to A&E out of hours please call 111.
