Practice News and Notices

 Clinical Staff Changes at The Lawns

We are very sorry indeed to announce that Dr Kang is leaving us in the middle of September to take up a new post at a surgery situated closer to where she lives.
Dr Kang has been a valued member of the practice team for over six years and will be very much missed.
Dr Kang has asked us to pass on her best wishes to all her patients. We are sure you will want to join the staff at The Lawns in wishing her all the very best for the future. 
Appointments can be booked with our GPs as follows:-
Dr Charles Shlosberg – Monday to Friday
Dr Melanie Davies - on a Monday and Friday only
Please remember we are closed from 2.30 p.m. on a Thursday
Medical Advice Outside of Normal Working Hours
Please note that if you need urgent medical advice when the surgery is closed, i.e. evenings, weekends and Bank/Public Holidays, you should contact the NHS 111 Service by dialling 111.   NHS 111 is free to call from both landlines and mobiles.
If you require an ambulance you should dial 999.
Update on Our Plans to Move to East Preston
As you may be aware, the local NHS is currently working on plans to further improve GP services in the wider Littlehampton area.  These plans include a potential opportunity to relocate Arun Medical Group to a new modern building adjacent to the new Morrisons store in Wick and, as a result, a possible relocation of The Lawns Surgery to larger and more modern premises in East Preston.
Significant work has taken place in recent months in relation to the potential relocation of both surgeries and a planning proposal submitted to Arun District Council in July 2014 has been approved subject to conditions. These conditions are now being worked through and we hope by the end of October 2014 to know more about if and when we are likely to be moving.  
Our current premises are very small, in a poor state of repair and do not allow the practice scope for expansion.  So we hope that once the plans have been finalised you will support our potential move to these new premises which we believe is in the best interests of our patients in terms of our ability to provide high quality care.
Extended Access Appointment Scheme - 2014-15
Please note that where our regular extended access appointments (i.e. GP appointments offered outside of the usual core times of 8 a.m. to 6.30 p.m. Monday to Friday) fall on a Bank Holiday,  or when we are closed due to staff training, we will aim to provide those appointments the next working day.  We provide extended access appointments with a GP on a Monday from 7.30 a.m. to 8 a.m. and on a Tuesday from 6.30 p.m to 7 p.m.  
Please note that due to staff training taking place on Tuesday, 23rd September 2014, our extended access appointments that week will instead be available on Wednesday, 24th September 2014 from 6.30 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Staff Training - 2014
In order to improve the service we provide for our patients, the surgery will be closed from 12:00 to 17:30 on the following dates during 2014. 
Thursday, 26th June
Tuesday, 15th July
Tuesday, 23rd September
Tuesday, 21st October
Wednesday, 19th November
There is still an emergency service available should you need to access healthcare whilst the surgery is closed.   Details of how you do this in respect of each of the above training sessions will be publicised in the surgery nearer the time and by dialling 01903 779924 on the day.
