Dr Andrew Reader Retirement

We wish to announce that Dr Andrew Reader will be retiring on 30th June  2021.

We are sure you will join us in wishing Andrew a very happy and well deserved retirement after over 31 years as a Partner at The Lindfield Medical Centre. 

He is looking forward to enjoying retirement and other exciting new ventures with his family. 

Together with his patients, we are all hugely grateful to him for many years of exceptional dedication and professional care.  We will be arranging a collection and presentation book to sign in due course.

We will, shortly, be informing you of the plans for his replacement.  Please note that changing your allocated GP is not required and any such requests will be declined.  In line with current NHS and CCG guidance, we also request that any patients living outside our practice catchment area will need to re-register with a more local practice.

In the meantime we are grateful for your patience and will try and ensure a smooth transition of your future medical care.

Looking after your mental health

Staying at home and self-isolating for a prolonged period can be difficult, frustrating and lonely for some people and you or other household members may feel low.

It is important to take care of your mind as well as your body and get support if you need it. There are many sources of support and information,

If you live in England and are aged 18 or over, you can access NHS psychological therapies (IAPT) services.

Hospital referrals

We understand that many patients are concerned about the length of time it is currently taking within the NHS to obtain timely referrals into hospitals for clinics and or surgery.

Covid-19 has affected waiting times for many services and are continually subject to change.

Whilst your GPs and Nurses at Lindfield Medical Surgery are acutely aware of theses issues, there is nothing that we or our staff can do in these circumstances.

Our advice is to contact the Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS) and discuss the matter with them. They have direct access to NHS Hospital  Services and can act on your behalf.
