Welcome to Spring Street Surgery

Welcome to our website which we hope you will find both useful and informative.

The practice has been in existence on this site since 1971.  Dr Orton joined the partnership in October 1995 and Dr Suntharalingam became a partner in March 2010 having joined the practice in 2005. Dr Rusk has taken over Dr Holbrooks list of patients since his retirement in April 2019. She is an experienced GP and joined Spring Street Surgery in 2017. We have three other job-sharing GPs: Dr Nishanthi Gunasekera,  Dr Lavanya Mohan and Dr Lara Morris. 

The current health centre was opened in August 2003. We offer a state-of-the-art setting for modern general practice with patient parking and disabled access and facilities. We share the building with one other GP practice, an NHS dental service and Central Surrey Health community health staff.

The following is our practice vision

  • To provide the best possible medical care to our patients
  • To treat all our patients with courtesy, compassion and respect
  • To promote good health and well being to our patients
  • To ensure all staff receive appropriate training and support
  • To encourage reflective practice by sharing and learning from mistakes and near misses
  • To keep up to date with guidance on best practice and governance
  • To consider economic and environmental sustainability in the provision of healthcare

 

Novel Coronavirus

The NHS and Public Health England (PHE) are extremely well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases. The NHS has put in place measures to ensure the safety of all patients and NHS staff while also ensuring services are available to the public as normal.

If you have :

  • a new continuous cough
  • High temperature (of 37.8 degrees centigrade or higher)

Individuals should stay at home (self isolate) for 7 days from the onset of symptoms following the current advice.  If someone has serious symptoms thet can not manage at home they should use the NHS 111 online (people shoild only call NHS 111 if they cannot get online.

After 7 days of self isolation,  poeple who feel better and no longer have a high temperature can return to their normal routine.    If they have not had any signs of improvement after 7 days and have not already sought medical advice,  they should use NHS 111 online before they leave their home or let visitors in.

Coughs may persist for several weeks in some people, despite the coronavirs infection having cleared.  A persistent cough alone does not mean someone myst continue to stay at home for more than 7 days.

Testing will not be offered routinely and are not available at the surgery.

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. Stay indoors and avoid close contact with other people.

Up to date informaiton can be found on  http://www.nhs.uk/coronavirus.   We expect the health service to be exceptionally busy in the coming days and weeks.   If you have serious symptoms they can not manage at home they should use NHS111 online.  They should only telephone NHS111 if they can not go online

To reduce your chances of catching COVID-19 and reduce pressure on your local GP practice during this busy time,  appoitnments will be carried out over the phone unless there is a clinical need for you to come to the practice.  This will help minimise risk while continuing to ensurepeople get the care and adivce they need.
