Welcome to St Andrew's Surgery - LEWES
We provide the highest quality healthcare to patients in the area. Our doctors, nurses and all our staff are dedicated to offering a professional service and this surgery website will help us to keep our patients up to date with news and information about our Practice.
IMPORTANT NOTIFICATION FOR PATIENTS REGARDING CHANGES TO THE WAY WE MAKE YOUR APPOINTMENTS:
Following on from our last notification regarding the merge of St Andrew’s Surgery with River Lodge Surgery and School Hill Medical Practice; We have now formed a Primary Care Network and we are pooling our resources in an endeavour to continue to provide our patients with the best possible service.
As a result of this collaboration we are now able to offer much more flexibility and availability of appointments from Monday to Saturday for certain services provided by your Practice Nurse team at any of the three Lewes sites; Your usual surgery, River Lodge Surgery Malling Street Lewes BN7 2RD or School Hill Medical Practice 33 High Street Lewes BN7 2LU. We also have a late surgery every Wednesday evening at one of the three sites for ear syringing and cervical smear tests. When you phone your surgery for an appointment the receptionist will let you know what is available and at which site so you may choose the most convenient.
In addition we will be running a pilot scheme called The Green Hub from Monday 2nd September 2019 based at River Lodge Surgery for patients who need contact with a GP on the same day that they phone for an appointment. Please note the receptionist will ask you for a brief explanation to ensure your call is dealt with by the most appropriate service. You may be signposted to the local pharmacy or our Practice Pharmacist for advice or The Minor Injuries Department at Lewes Victoria Hospital. Those patients allocated to the Green Hub will receive a telephone call from one of the triaging Doctors from any of the three Lewes surgeries. If that GP decides the patient needs to be seen they will make an appointment with a GP or our Paramedic at RIVER LODGE SURGERY.
This pilot does not affect patients requiring contact with their usual GP or a member of their team for ongoing or non-urgent conditions. Those appointments will continue to be made at St Andrew’s Surgery.
To register for Online Access please bring with you 2 forms of ID (passport, driving licence and bank statements) to the surgery & a member of our reception team will assist you.
For Non-urgent contact with the surgery you may use the following email addresses:
