Welcome to Summerhill Surgery
We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us.
Our dedicated team are here to treat those minor ailments that occur as well as providing specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues. The technology also means you can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription or cancel an appointment.
Partners in Care
Once registered, patients and healthcare professionals work together to ensure the most appropriate care is provided. This partnership philosophy extends even further and our active patient group exists to make sure that patient needs and the practice offering are always heading in the same direction.
If you have travelled from China or have been in contact with someone confirmed as having Coronavirus in the last two weeks, you may be at risk of Coronavirus.
Please do NOT leave the house. Instead, ring 111 if:
- You have been in China in the last 14 days and develop cough, fever or shortness of breath; or
- You have been in Wuhan or Hubei Province in the last 14 days or have been in contact with someone confirmed as having Coronavirus, even if you feel well
From the 1st of April 2015, practices are required under the terms of the latest GP contracts to allocate all patients a named GP.
This is purely an administrative exercise in order that patients can have a named responsible GP should they require them.
If you wish to be told your accountable GP please ask the receptionist when you next visit the surgery .
Please note : there is NO need to telephone the practice for this information as this will cause difficulties for patients who need to contact the surgery.
Having a named GP does not prevent you from seeing any of the GPs within the practice as your named GP will not be available at all times and if your needs are urgent, you may need to discuss them with an alternative doctor.
Access & Parking
The practice has reserved disabled parking spaces, toilets and access for wheelchair users. If access proves difficult for any of our disabled patients please ask for assistance.
There is parking for 18 vehicles, please do not park outside the designated spaces. If the car park is full please park on Margate Road.
