Birchwood Medical Practice regrets that it is not at present able to register NHS Patients.

This decision has been taken in order to ensure the practice can continue to safely provide NHS services to its currently registered patients.

If you are not currently registered with an NHS GP locally and need to see a doctor or nurse urgently, you can attend the Urgent Treatment Centre at Crawley Hospital.

Alternatively you can contact East Surrey Clinical Commissioning Group (ESCCG) on 01293 600300 ext. 3228 who will allocate you a GP in your area.

Evening and weekend access to GP appointments

GP appointments are now available during the evening and at the weekend for people registered with a GP in East Surrey.

This means that both routine and urgent appointments are available at a local hub during weekday evenings and on a Saturday and Sunday, to make sure local people get the health help and support they need.

NHS East Surrey CCG, working in partnership with local patients and clinicians, designed the service. The appointment hubs are run by Alliance for Better Care Ltd, the local GP Federation.

How to book an evening or weekend appointment at a hub:

Appointments can be booked through your own GP practice in the normal way, during normal opening hours.

Clinicians working at the hubs will have access to your medical records with your agreement. You will be asked before any information is shared and can decline if you wish.

Your help to design this new service

In preparation for this additional, improved access to GP care, we sought the views and experiences of local patients and the public through a survey.  The results can be found here:

Evening and Weekend GP Appointments

East Surrey GP Practices are working together to provide more appointments in the evenings and at weekends at our new GP Hubs: Caterham Dene Community Hospital, The Hawthornes Surgery and Birchwood Medical Practice.

Birchwood Medical Practice

The practice history dates back to the beginning of the 20th century when one of the former senior partners followed a family tradition of doctoring in Horley. As the growth of Horley led to an increased list of patients, so too did the number of doctors.

We transferred into the Kings Road surgery in 1976 and in May 2005, after many years of planning, moved into the current premises known as Birchwood Medical practice.

Since 2009, Dr Elango Vijaykumar is the senior partner of the practice.

Birchwood Medical practice is one of the 17 practices in the East Surrey Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG). http://www.eastsurreyccg.nhs.uk/

   

Our Vision

To be recognised as a Centre of Excellence that provides the highest quality of NHS care, which is equitable, family orientated and evidence based.

 

Our Mission

We will consistently strive to provide comprehensive health care that fully reflects and addresses the needs of the community we serve.  Key to this will be evidence based patient centred care.  Respect and courtesy towards our patients and their carers will be a hallmark of our efforts.  We will at all times respond adequately and appropriately to the needs of our patients, within the scope of The NHS.  We will continue to provide the highest standards in teaching and training to future generations of health care professionals.

 

We at Birchwood Medical Practice value your feedback.

  • We get told when things go wrong - we would like to hear when things go wrong and when we get it right for you
  • We use your feedback for staff training
  • Your positive feedback is a way to to thank the staff who attended to your needs
