Welcome to the Website

This site has been designed with you, the patient, in mind.  Its aims are to:

  • Give you the opportunity to make suggestions on topics concerning the way the surgery operates.
  • Provide explanations of why certain things are done in a particular manner.
  • Encourage visitors (i.e. registered Crawley Down patients) to share in discussions that arise from items as they are posted.
  • Offer people the ability to subscribe to the site so they can be notified every time the site is updated by us or commented on by others.
  • Give the PPG’s the ability to generate their own newsletters from it to distribute to those not PC orientated.
  • Provide information on the latest services the practice is offering like, say, immunization programmes.
  • Be a source of up to date news on health matters both on a local and national basis.
  • Provide links to other health orientated websites which may help provide answers to questions that you might have.

This will hopefully create a much more dynamic experience for you and, of course, impose on us the duty to keep the information flowing and therefore appear to be much more vital to you.

Peter Dodds and Glynn Roche (Co-Chairs of The Friends of Crawley Down Health Centre)

Invitation: Coffee Morning on 24th November

Prevention of Falls – Talk by AgeUK on 22nd October

AgeUK will be presenting a talk on the important subject of preventing falls.

It is hosted by The Monday Club and taking place at 1315 at the Haven Centre on Monday 22nd October. The talk will run for about half and hour.

All are welcome.

The event is supported by local organisations that provide help for vulnerable members of our community. Caroline Custard will be there from Friends of Crawley Down Health Centre.

Calling all Waitrose Customers

We are delighted to tell that Waitrose in East Grinstead have selected the Friends of Crawley Down Health Centre as one of their Community Matters nominated local causes for October.

 

If you are willing to use your green token(s) to support us supporting the surgery it would be fantastic.

We will let you know how this goes and we really appreciate your support.

Thank you from all of us.

Repeat Prescriptions Are Changing

We have been advised of a change to the way repeat prescriptions are handled:

Your GP surgery will now only accept prescription requests from you or your carer. Pharmacies will no longer be able to do this for you.

What do I need to do?

There are three different ways to order your medicines:

  • Ordering online through your GP practice website or app
  • Visit the practice and order in person
  • Post your repeat prescription request to the practice

This does not affect how your medicine or equipment is delivered or received.

If you, a member of your family, or someone you care for need help ordering medications, please speak to reception at the surgery or your local pharmacy who will be able to offer you support.

Online Patient Access service has returned

Just to let you know the normal online access has been reinstated. There has been an upgrade in the process so the “look and feel” is different but otherwise all the same facilities are there as before.
