To allow doctors and practice staff to take part in a Protected Learning Time training session, Buxted, East Hoathly and Manor Oak Medical Centres will be closed for half a day from 12.30pm on Thursday 18th November 2021.
The NHS East Sussex Clinical Commissioning Group actively supports developing general practice, to improve the care of our patients. The Protected Learning Time Programme provides an opportunity for all staff at our practices to participate in education and training events. All participating surgeries in the area will be closed on this afternoon.
If you require emergency medical treatment while the surgeries are closed, please call 0300 020 0550.
While the Pharmacy and Dispensary will remain open, we would be very grateful if all non-urgent requests after 12.30pm could wait until Friday 19th November, when the surgery will re-open as usual.
Thank you for your support.
COVID Safety Measures
While the legal requirement to wear a face covering will be removed from 19th July, current NHS visitor guidance will stay in place across all health services.
As such, to protect both patients and staff, and to enable our most vulnerable patients to continue safely attending our surgeries, face coverings and social distancing measures will remain in place across Buxted, East Hoathly and Manor Oak Medical Centres.
Find out how the NHS App will be used to demonstrate your Covid -19 vaccination status. The NHS App can show this information from 17th May 2021 onwards.
If you do not have a smartphone or tablet and cannot access the NHS App you can call the NHS helpline on 119 from 17th May 2021 and ask for a letter to be posted to you. It can take up to 5 days to receive the letter.
Unfortunately, we cannot provide letters showing your Covid-19 vaccination status.
To make it easier for patients to book their COVID vaccination appointment or get answers to their COVID queries, in addition to our COVID Information line, we now have a new COVID Information email address.
The COVID Information line is open from 09:00-12:00 Monday - Friday and can be reached by dialing 01825 732333 and selecting option 6.
Our new COVID Information email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Emails will be checked daily.
We now have a dedicated COVID Information Line and are inviting patients over the age of 50, who have not yet received their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, to phone us on 01825 732333 between 9.00am – 12.00pm and select option 1.
There are three simple actions we must all do to keep on protecting each other:
- Wash hands - keep washing your hands regularly
- Cover face - wear a face covering in enclosed spaces
- Make space - stay at least 2 metres apart (or 1 metre with a face covering or other precautions)
