PATIENT SURVEY-Have your say, we would like your feedback and comments to this survey about additional GP and Nurse appointments before 22nd July please. Rural North Chichester - Extended Opening Hours Patient Survey (office.com)

Dr Mitchinson has confirmed that he will be taking long term sick leave. We will update you with further news when we hear from him again. We wish him a full and speedy recovery. We will aim to provide extra GP appointments with locums during his absence.

There are national shortages across the whole country of a number of different medications. Our dispensary team work under the close supervision of our GPs to find a suitable alternative if your usual medication is not available. Sometimes you may be offered a prescription to take away to another chemist who may have their own supply of your particular item, but this is not within our control. We ask that you treat all our staff with respect and in a polite manner if you have any concerns with any of our services. Raised voices and rude behaviour will not be tolerated.

COVID VACCINATION BOOSTERS If you have a scheduled Covid vaccination appointment with us and will not be attending, please remember to cancel the appointment so that vaccine is not wasted and the appointment can be used for someone else thank you. We continue to take bookings for booster vaccines for all patients aged 18+, providing 3 months has passed since the 2nd dose. Our phone lines remain really busy, please do not be tempted to come to the surgery in person to book as this only takes staff away from answering the telephones.  If we are unable to book you in for a suitable time, all ages will be able to book via the National Booking System https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/book-coronavirus-vaccination/ All under 18 year old's are now eligible for a 2nd dose of their vaccine, please contact Pulborough Surgery 01798 872815 directly to book your appointment. There must be a minimum of 12 weeks between your 1st and 2nd dose.

Please do not contact us for any information about secondary care appointments, we do not hold any information regarding a hospital appointment and waiting times. Please contact the hospital you have been referred to directly if you wish to know anything about a hospital appointment and when you may be seen. The hospitals have asked us to share information which may be helpful whilst you are waiting to be seen by them. Support while you wait - Sussex Health & Care Partnership (sussexhealthandcare.uk)
