Welcome to Little Common & Old Town Surgery
Monday 8th August - Friday 12th August
We are experiencing high levels of clinical staff shortages at both of our surgery sites this week and therefore we can only deal with urgent problems or queries that cannot wait. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, but would be very grateful if you could only contact the surgery for any urgent queries or problems. Please do not attend A&E or call 111.
If you have a routine appointment pre-booked for this week, you may be contacted to rearrange it.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Bexhill Primary Care Network PCN
Primary care networks build on the core of current primary care services and enable greater provision of proactive, personalised, coordinated and more integrated health and social care. Clinicians describe this as a change from reactively providing appointments to proactively care for the people and communities they serve. Where emerging primary care networks are in place in parts of the country, there are clear benefits for patients and clinicians.
Dr Binodh Chathanath is the Clinical Director of the Bexhill PCN.
The GP Practices within the Bexhill PCN are;

Thank you in advance for taking the time to review the care we offer.
Following consultation with our Patient Participation Group we have changed our extended hours sessions. We no longer offer Saturday morning appointments but instead offer some early morning appointments at Little Common Surgery for workers, and early morning and evening appointments at Old Town Surgery throughout the week. This will be for pre-booked appointments only. Appointments are available before 8am . Please contact our reception teams to book an appointment.
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.
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. Just click on the link to your registered practice.
