Welcome to Warmdene Surgery
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.

After 20 happy years here at Warmdene Surgery, Dr Greenwood will sadly be leaving as a Partner on 30th June 2019 to enable her to spend more time with her young family.
She will however continue to work here until the end of July and will be returning from time to time to help out as a locum.
We wish her all the best for the future.
IMPORTANT- please read Brexit and medicine shortages

HelpMyNHS: help the NHS provide the best possible care
The NHS is doing everything it can with the resources it has to deal with the extra pressures. #HelpMyNHS is calling on everyone to play their part by adopting small behavioural changes to ease pressures on local health and care services, saving them for those in the most need. It asks people to:
- #HelpMyA&E by highlighting alternative services to A&E and when to use them.
- #HelpMyGP by using GP appointments properly; taking steps to help prevent getting ill; self-managing minor illnesses; and, using alternative services (e.g. pharmacists).
Nationally, 1 in 4 people are reported to go to A&E when they could have been treated elsewhere and, additionally, 1 in 4 people who visit their GP with a minor illness could have been treated at home with the help of a community pharmacist.
Go to the dedicated website [www.sussexhelpmy.nhs.uk] for alternatives to A&E visits or GP appointments. Alternatively, watch this short animation here.
