Welcome to Park Crescent Health Centre
"Our mission is to promote a healthy community through mutual understanding and respect”
With patients' needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations.
Changes to the way you will receive your test results
The surgery is changing the way that you will receive the results of any test you have had. We will shortly be implementing a new system that means patients will receive an SMS indicating the result of any test. This has been done to keep patients better informed of their results, and also to lessen the demand on our telephone lines during the day.
Due to the broad range of tests being requested by the clinical staff, it may mean that patients can receive a number of messages dependant on the specifications of the test. Patients will be informed if they need to contact the surgery and the reception team will be able to ensure that by are seen by the most appropriate member of staff. There are certain tests for which a member of staff will contact you directly with the result however you will be told this when the test is done.
During any blood test that you have in the surgery, you will be asked if you consent to receiving the result by SMS. If patients have already dissented or wish to dissent to SMS, or they do not have a mobile number then they will be informed by the surgery if there is any follow up action needed. This would normally be a telephone call or letter. If you wish to be communicated to in any other way, such as email, then please speak to a member of staff.
Patients are also advised that test results are available to view using our System 1 On Line. This also provides patients with access to booking appointments and requesting repeat prescriptions. Please speak to a member of the reception team if you wish to have access to this service.
Dr Jason Barrow is leaving
It is with great sadness that we would like to let you know that Dr Barrow will be leaving us on the 16th March 2018. Dr Barrow has worked at Park Crescent for almost 8 years during two separate periods and has shown great commitment to the practice and our patients. Dr Barrow has been closely involved in the development of the surgery and the services we offer; including taking a lead role in the implementation of a new Cancer Care Review service and training junior doctors. We wish him and his family, all the best in their new adventures in Kent.
'I would like to say thanks to all the patients, families and carers who I've had the honour to care for over my years at Park Crescent. I will miss working here, especially the staff team who work hard together to provide the best care we possibly can. I wish you all the best for the future.' - Dr Jason Barrow
Extended Hours Service
The surgery now have access to some GP and NUrse appointment during weekday evenings and Saturdays. This service is provided by the Extended Hours Service at HERE and appointments will be held at Beaconsfield Medical Centre. Appointment are available between:
Mon - Fri : 6:30pm - 8:00pm
Sat : 8:00am - 2pm
If these appointment times are more convenient for you then please speak to the reception team who can book you in. Please note that availability is limited for these. The GP or Nurse that you see will still have access to your medical history.
Capping our patient list
The surgery is currently no longer accepting any new patient registrations. This decision has been made as a result of a number of GPs leaving the surgery and the recent closure of Lewes Road surgery. We are working closely with Brighton and Hove CCG to ascertain the length of time that this will be in place.
Currently the nearest GP surgery where you can register is St Peters Medical Centre.
Otherwise you will be able to find details of any other surgeries in the local area by searching on the following website:
We are sorry for any inconvenience.
