WELCOME TO PRINCES PARK HEALTH CENTRE

The practice originated in 1925 when Drs Barron and Caldwell joined together to form a new practice in Devonshire Lodge in Seaside. It moved to the Winifred Lee Health Centre (now Horder Healthcare) when it first opened in 1974 under the leadership of Dr Craib.

The practice gradually expanded and outgrew the 'Wini Lee' and after several years of searching for a new site, The Princes Park Health Centre was built and opened on 1st January 2000. The Winifred Lee Health Centre was then redeveloped and re-opened as The Apollo Centre in July 2002, which has since been renamed Horder Healthcare Eastbourne in January 2013.

The Princes Park Health Centre runs entirely NHS services. Horder Healthcare has a mixture of private and NHS services.

The practice has seven permanent doctors and visiting GPs and other associates when required. This is part of a team of primary health care staff that also includes practice nurses, district nurses, health visitors, community midwives, Macmillan nurses and support from reception, secretarial and managerial staff. Our aim is to provide the fullest possible care which includes maternity services, contraceptive services, child health, certain forms of minor surgery as well as the usual medical care. Services are also available from attached staff including an audiologist, retinal screening, full digital X-ray service, DXA (Bone Density) and MRI Scanning.

The health centre has access for the disabled and parking space is available.

There are nappy changing facilities on the premises.

Smoking is not permitted anywhere in the building.


Practice News and Notices

 

 

What’s New?

 

A new way to get your medicines and appliances

The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) is an NHS service. It gives you the chance to change how your GP sends your prescription to the place you choose to get your medicines or appliances from.

 

What does this mean for you?

 

If you collect your repeat prescriptions from your GP you will not have to visit your GP practice to pick up your paper prescription. Instead, your GP will send it electronically to the place you choose, saving you time.

You will have more choice about where to get your medicines from because they can be collected from a pharmacy near to where you live, work or shop.

You may not have to wait as long at the pharmacy as there will be time for your repeat prescriptions to be ready before you arrive.

 

 

 

Is this service right for you?

 

Yes, if you have a stable condition and you:

h don’t want to go to your GP practice every time to collect your repeat prescription.

h collect your medicines from the same place most of the time or use a prescription collection service now.

It may not be if you:

h don’t get prescriptions very often.

h pick up your medicines from different places.

 

How can you use EPS?

 

You need to choose a place for your GP practice to electronically send your prescription to. This is called nomination. You can choose:

h a pharmacy.

h a dispensing appliance contractor (if you use one).

h your dispensing GP practice (if you are eligible).

Ask any pharmacy or dispensing appliance contractor that offers EPS or your GP practice to add your nomination for you. You don’t need a computer to do this.

 

 

 

 

Can I change my nomination or cancel it and get a paper prescription?

 

Yes you can. If you don’t want your prescription to be sent electronically tell your GP. If you want to change or cancel your nomination speak to any pharmacist or dispensing appliance contractor that offers EPS, or your GP practice. Tell them before your next prescription is due or your prescription may be sent to the wrong place.

Please nominate a pharmacy and update your contact details at reception, as from 30th April 2015 we will be sending prescriptions electronically to a pharmacy of your choice.

30% of appointments are now pre-bookable up to two weeks in advance.

Dr Andrews, Dr Pope and Dr Rabuszko offer evening appointments that are also pre-bookable on a Tuesday and Thursday, from 6.30 - 7.40pm.

"Boots", the Chemist next door, also stays open until 7.30pm on these evenings.

Dr Sorooshian and Dr Southward offer early morning appointments that are also pre-bookable on a Wednesday, from 7.00 - 8.10am. 

 New CCG for Eastbourne  

Eastbourne, Hailsham and Seaford Clinical Commissioning Group brings together 110 GPs, working in 22 practices, who look after more than 180,000 people who live in the area.

GPs have a well-established and important role in providing care for their patients, coordinating patients’ care with other health services and speaking on their patients’ behalf. We are a membership organisation, and will build on the strengths of general practice to ensure that our patients receive the best quality care.

We already influence decisions about local health services by working jointly with NHS Sussex, which will commission (buy) services for local people until we take on much of this work in April 2013.

We will be working closely with our neighbouring clinical commissioning groups in East Sussex; Hastings and Rother CCG and High Weald, Lewes and Havens CCG, and we will continue to work with all of our key partners and stakeholders.

A&E departments

There are over 21 million attendances at accident and emergency (A&E) departments each year.

A&E departments assess and treat patients with serious injuries or illnesses. Generally, you should visit A&E or call 999 for life-threatening emergencies, such as:

  • loss of consciousness
  • acute confused state and fits that are not stopping
  • persistent, severe chest pain
  • breathing difficulties
  • severe bleeding that cannot be stopped

If an ambulance is needed, call 999, the emergency phone number in the UK. You can also dial 112, which is the ambulance number throughout the European Union.

Major A&E departments offer access 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, although not all hospitals have an A&E department. At A&E a doctor or nurse will assess your condition and decide on further action.

If it is not an immediate emergency call NHS 111. The service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and can provide medical advice and advise you on the best local service to offer the care you need.

Less severe injuries can be treated in minor injuries services and NHS walk-in centres, which can treat patients without an appointment.

For illnesses that are not life threatening you should first contact your GP surgery. Outside of normal surgery hours you can still phone your GP, but you will usually be directed to an out-of-hours service. The out-of-hours period is from 6.30pm to 8am on weekdays, and all day at weekends and on bank holidays. During out-of-hours periods you can also call NHS 111.

Locally for us you have the Eastbourne Walk-in Centre, located on the concourse at Eastbourne Railway Station 8.00am - 8.00pm, seven days a week, 01323 726650. This should be your first option when the surgery is closed. 

Finally for minor ailements remember your local Pharmacy could well offer a quick solution.
