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.

Welcome to Newtons Practice Website

We will be closed on Bank Holiday Monday 31st May.  

If you need medical attention whilst we are closed please contact NHS111.  There are also links on the Online Services page to eConsult - an online GP service which you can use when we are closed.   Please also make full use of your local Pharmacist who is trained to give you advice on medication and minor problems.  Please be patient when we re-open on Tuesday 1st June and only contact us on that day if you have an urgent query which can't wait until we have worked through the Bank Holiday backlog.  We are facing an unprecedented workload at the moment and are also continuing with the administration of the Covid-19 vaccine service.  Your understanding and patience is appreciated.

Self-care:  Please follow this link for fact sheets on common ailments, how to manage them at home and when to seek further help.  They have been produced with patient and professional input and reviewed by GP experts in the given topics.

Our practice is open for new patient registrations. You can use this website to register as a patient, book and cancel appointments and order repeat prescriptions.  There is also an App you can download to help you manage your medical affairs - see our 'Online Services' page.  We have our own patient car park and are within easy reach of the town centre and station.

We have an experienced team of twelve doctors, three paramedic practitioners, three practice nurses and two health care assistants.  Our dedicated team is here to treat any minor ailments that may occur, as well as providing specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues, including family planning and minor surgery procedures.   We also have other healthcare professionals working at the practice and can offer appointments with a First Contact Physiotherapist, Occupational Therapist, Social Prescriber and Care Co-ordinator.  Please either use the 'New Patient' page of this website, or contact our reception team who will be happy to help you with any registration queries.

We offer online GP consultations for patients who are not able to get into the practice or who may be working during office hours - see our online services page for EConsult or Livi info.

Newtons Practice is an established medical centre with twelve doctors serving over 13,000 patients in the Haywards Heath area. Centrally located in the town, the surgery provides the highest quality healthcare.

If you have moved to Haywards Heath and need to register with a GP, please ask at reception for a registration form or complete the online form via the 'New Patients' tab.  We will require two forms of ID when you register, including photo ID and current proof of address, such as a utility bill or bank statement.

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.
