Care Navigation

You may have noticed that we now ask for a brief outline of your problem when you call to make an appointment at the practice. This isn’t because our reception staff are nosy but it’s a new approach that we call care navigation.

Through specialist training, our team can now offer more choice on who to see in the practice and help you get to the right health professional fast. Our receptionists never offer clinical advice or triage; this is about offering you the choice to see other specialists in our practice team if they have the expertise to deal with your problem; often quicker and without the need to see the GP each time.

By working this way, it helps us to free up time for GPs to care for our patients with complex or serious health conditions. More importantly though, it means you are seen by the clinician that is best placed to deal with your problem each time you visit us. The choice is up to you.

Due to a shortage of GP's, we have temporarily capped our lists and are currently not accepting new registrations. Click here to see how you can help our receptionists deal with your request in the most appropriate way.

Ear Syringing

Unfortunately, from 1st April 2018, the practice will no longer offer an ear syringing service.  However, an 'Ear Wax - Self Treatment' information sheet is available Here or at the surgery reception desk.

Cervical Smears

Cytology clinics are run by the practice nurses or a female General Practitioner.

A cervical screening test (smear test) is a method of preventing cervical cancer by detecting abnormal cells in the cervix (lower part of the womb).

Cervical screening is not a test for cancer, but it is a test to check the health of the cervix. Most women's test results show that everything is normal. But for one in 20 women, the test will show some changes in the cells of the cervix.

We recommend 3 yearly checks for ladies aged between 25-50 years and 5 yearly checks for ladies aged between 50-65 years. Reminders and results are sent out by the Primary Care Support Services in Lewes.
