The Wuhan Coronavirus
If you have recently travelled from mainland China or believe you may have been in contact with someone who has been confirmed as having Coronavirus please telephone the surgery informing them of this as well as any symptoms you may be experiencing. PLEASE DO NOT VISIT THE SURGERY AND SELF ISOLATE. We have procedures in place and we will be able to discuss these with you when you telephone in
We know that many of you are keen to self manage where possible but aren't always sure where best to get your information from. So, we would like to develop a self care strategy for our practice. Our Patient Participation Group (PPG) already displays information in the reception area at Buxted on selected topics.
We might include a self care area on this website which you can access to get info and also find links to useful websites and leaflets to help you when appropriate, rather than seeking an appointment.
We would also like to know of any other ways you might want information about health and long term conditions, that we do not already offer, such as via YouTube or educational talks. The link below gives access to very useful information on common complaints eg sore throat, strains and sprains and the common cold
Patients are invited to read our newsletter which also gives useful a useful update both on practice information and health related topics. Our current Health Awareness topic is " Living with Pain". Please look under the Have your say-Patient Group- section of this website for further information
Help and advice from our Pharmacy Manager

Enhanced Telephone System
In response to comments from our patients we have now enhanced our telephone system by introducing a new queuing system which is now operational at both Buxted and East Hoathly. Please tell us what you think of this system - we always value patient feedback.
