Merger with Horam's Manor Oak Surgery
All Buxted & East Hoathly Medical Centre and Manor Oak Surgery patients have now been merged on one system.
The merged practice includes all of the existing boundaries and it is now easier for patients to be booked at any of the three sites.
Dr Annalie Robertson is now working with us three days a week and Dr Melissa Farrant rejoined us on 18th September following maternity leave.
New Ear Microsuction clinics
Patients with a history of ear problems - operations or perforations (holes in the eardrum) - are now able to be treated at Buxted Medical Centre. Dr David Wright and Dr Sarah Perry have recently been accredited to perform ear microsuction which may save patient visits to the hospital Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT) Department. Ask reception for more details.
Help and advice from our Pharmacy Manager
Nick Humby joined the team earlier this year as our Pharmacy Manager. He will work every weekday except Wednesday when our Superintendent Pharmacist Bridget will be here. Nick has a wealth of experience and can give lots of help and advice on minor ailments and medication.
Appointment reminders by phone proving a big success
Fewer appointments are being lost following the introduction of our new SMS text messaging service linked to the appointment system. Patients are being reminded to keep their appointment or are contacting us to change those that are no longer convenient. This means a more efficient system with fewer missed appointments and better availability for those trying to get an appointment.
