STATEMENT FROM THE PARTNERS

The Partners of The Park Surgery and Westcourt Medical Centre in Rustington are pleased to announce that they will be joining forces this year in a merger that will see increased resilience in General Practice locally, and even more seamless care, in a venture that will see the two practices sharing their strengths, and learning from each other.

Day to day, there will be no obvious immediate change, and patients need not fear that they will lose access to their usual team of Doctors and nurses. Patients who usually attend the Westcourt building will generally continue to do so, the same with patients of The Park Surgery.

The two practices will combine forces to provide enhanced care in the community with a shared visiting team, and a strengthening of our ‘same-day-service’, operating from both sites.

As far as most patients are concerned it will be ‘business as usual’, and the Partners of both practices are looking forward to providing even better services for their patients.

We are in the very early stages and more information will follow when we have it.

ONLINE SERVICES AND SMS TEXTS AND EMAILS

Patients can now request repeat prescriptions, and can book and cancel appointments online.  To register for the service you will need to come into the surgery and bring some photographic ID with you such as a passport or driving licence. When you have done this we will provide you with a user name and password to access the service.

We also make use of SMS Texts for example to remind you of future appointments.  We would also like to send you emails when we need to invite you to an appointment, for example recall appointments and flu vaccinations.  Please make sure we have details of your mobile phone number and email address and that you consent to these being used.

Thank you
