NHS APP - If you would like to have confirmation of your covid vaccines, please sign up for Patient Access and the NHS App.  This will then give you the facility to share your Covid vaccine status as necessary.  Please do not ring the surgery about this, unless you need help to set up the Patient Access.  Thank you.

Please follow this link for more information on the NHS App:

https://www.nhs.uk/nhs-services/online-services/nhs-app/

Please note that the practice is using the Patient Access Service which allows you to request your repeat medication as displayed on the doctors computer - this is your medical record. If your medication does not appear, it may be because your medication last time was 'ACUTE' which means it could have been a one off prescription for the condition you had/have, and the doctor needs to be informed before it is converted to a repeat medication. Use the pop down to add in a note requesting the 'acute' medication.

If you have been using the old system to get your prescriptions - please print off the Application form for patient access, complete it and bring it into reception with photo ID. Reception will give you a unique pin number to access 'On line Patient Services' you only need to do this the once.

First time use of Patient Access online services for appointments & repeat prescriptions:

  • Click on Patient access and follow the log on instructions
  • You will be asked to create an account
  • You will be prompted for your personal login details

The NHS uses various systems to book your Covid-19 Vaccination but we will never ask you for bank details to confirm your identity and the vaccine will always be free. If you receive a letter / email or text asking for your bank details, it is a scam.

Crawley Hospital has a twenty-four hour, walk-in, urgent treatment centre that you can use:

Crawley Hospital Urgent Treatment Centre

We treat most injuries or illnesses that are urgent but not life threatening. For example sprains and strains, broken bones, minor burns and scalds, minor head and eye injuries, bites and stings. You do not need to book an appointment - just turn up and you will be seen promptly by either a doctor or nurse.

We provide an initial assessment and treatment of patients who would benefit from immediate care to improve their symptoms and reduce the need for an admission into an acute hospital. We refer patients onto the specialist team who require accident and emergency (A&E) care or speciality care.

All patients are booked in on arrival and assessed by a nurse. During assessment/triage a range of questions are asked to aid clinical management and prioritisation to ensure patients with the highest needs are seen first. During triage patients may be advised:

  • to see their own GP
  • referred to an alternative healthcare provider
  • advised on self care management
  • or to see a local pharmacist.

How to Access the Crawley Hospital Urgent Treatment Centre:

Open for walk-in patients 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Based at Crawley Hospital, West Green Drive, Crawley, RH11 7DH. Tel: 01293 600300 Ext.4141

Newtons Practice is an established medical centre with twelve doctors serving over 13,500 patients in the Haywards Heath area. Centrally located in the town, the surgery provides the highest quality healthcare.

Our Practice opening times are 8.00am to 6.30pm Monday to Friday. 

We also have GP appointments and Nurse appointments available on a Saturday morning at our Network Group Practice in Haywards Heath.

As well as routine surgeries, the doctors and Practice Nurses provide a range of medical services and clinics which include Diabetes, Asthma, COPD, Gynae including contraceptive advice, Minor Surgery, Smoking Cessation, NHS Health Checks and many more.  

We also have three Paramedic Practitioners who hold a daily 'Urgent Care Clinic' who will help you if you are unwell and need treatment or advice. 

The Paramedics will refer you on to see a GP if necessary.  


Our phone lines will now be closed between 1pm - 2pm for administrative purposes, if you need urgent advice from a doctor during this period, please ring the surgery for details of the emergency mobile telephone number.

Please note any emergencies should be called through before 6pm as our phone lines go over at this time. You'll be triaged and be able to speak to the 'Duty Doctor' as they are the only on call emergency doctor available. (Appointments and routine enquiries cannot be dealt with during this time).



WHEN WE ARE CLOSED: Should you need the services of a GP when we are closed please contact our out of hours provider via telephone number 111. They will advise you as to which is the most appropriate service for your immediate needs. If you need to be seen by a doctor, they will transfer your call to 'IC24', an out of hours GP service.

Your call will be triaged and if appropriate they will ask you to come into their base at the Princess Royal Hospital in Haywards Heath. They will also contact us with details of your telephone call or visit when we re-open so your medical records will be kept up to date.  


Please make sure you give us your up to date mobile phone number and notify us if you are happy for a message to be left should you not answer.


 

 There is access for disabled patients from the car park. All the consulting rooms are on one level. Please allow plenty of time for parking as it is often full and

spaces are very limited.  There is a public car park next door if the Health Centre car park is full.
