  Find health help over the holidays through innovative NHS web app 

Our GPs provide a range of services by appointment and will be able to assess your immediate needs as well as refer you into a specialist service. If the surgery is closed, there are other NHS services available as an alternative to A&E.  

Using the right health service for your needs can prevent you waiting around in A&E, ensure you receive the appropriate treatment more quickly and free up local A&E staff to help those patients with the most serious conditions.

Health Help Now App

The app is free to use and available online at www.healthhelpnow-nhs.net. It lists common symptoms and helps you to find the best place for treatment in East Surrey. If you need treatment for a minor injury on a Sunday, to find a pharmacy late at night, or are not sure where to go for care, Health Help Now can help.

Comments & Suggestions

The Practice Manager handles all comments or complaints about our services.

We record all complaints. We write to say we have received a written complaint within two working days of receiving it. We respond to all complaints within ten working days.

Where a complaint is about a doctor, you have the right to choose to discuss this with another doctor in the practice if you wish.

Use of the practice complaints procedure does not take away your right to make a complaint to other NHS bodies. However, we find that the sooner we are made aware of your problem, the sooner we can solve it and make sure that it does not happen again. This is your practice and we want to work with you to make it the best. A leaflet containing full information on our complaints procedure can be downloaded below:

  2. Being customer focused
  3. Being open and accountable
  4. Acting fairly and proportionately
  5. Putting things right
  6. Seeking continuous improvements

If you remain unhappy after everything has been done to try to resolve your concern or complaint you have the right to approach the Ombudsman.
