To support the NHS, in these unprecedented times, all GP surgeries will be available between 8.00 am and 06:30pm on Good Friday and Easter Monday this year for essential services. Please follow the protocol we have been adopting for the last few weeks in that all patients should phone the surgery for a telephone consultation and then if the GP wishes to see them they will be given an appointment time later in the day. Please do not attend the surgery without an appointment
Online appointments - we have temporarily turned off access to booking appointments online
To avoid shortages, may we kindly ask patients not to order medication earlier than required or request medication that has not been issued to them for years

Our Mission Statement
We, at Herstmonceux Integrative Health Centre are a Patient centred practice, providing a calm relaxed environment for Patients and Staff. We are committed to sustainable living, sustainable working, providing safe and effective quality health care in an environment of equality and respect. We are passionate about healthcare striving to support our Patients in achieving their health goals. We are integrated within our Community working with our Partners to identify, support and respond to our Patients health care needs.
Our vision is to provide Integrative Medicine, supported by the NHS and we are looking at ways to achieve this in our 5 year development plan. For now, patients pay our complementary practitioners direct on a per session basis.
Dementia Friendly Health Centre
All the staff at the Health Centre have responded to the Governments campaign for a million people to become Demenita Friends and have either completed online training or attended a course to become a Dementia Friend. At the Health Centre we are committed to making the Patients experience as positive as possible.
Our new purpose built sustainable premises
Our building supports our vision of providing a sense of calm and relaxation for patients and staff alike. It has been built, mindful of the patient experience, to maximise natural light and reduce our impact on the environment. Sustainability is important to us - in looking after our patients, caring for the environment and in our role as guardians for NHS resources - we want to see NHS funding spent where it provides the best health outcomes for all.
We have a portable hearing induction loop at the Health Centre, please speak to a member of staff if you require any assistance accessing the system or if you require the portable hearing loop in your consultation. Please also let a member of our reception team know if you require any information in larger font, braille or if you need any communication support relating to a disability, impairment or sensory loss.
If you’re new to the area, come and join us - we welcome new patients (boundaries apply)
