Our reception team may ask for an indication of the problem if a patient asks to be seen urgently. This is to ensure that the patient can be directed to the best service, which may not always be a doctor or nurse practitioner appointment. Appointments in the Acute Unit should only be used for urgent concerns and to discuss one issue. If the problem is not an urgent one, a routine appointment should be made.
Park Surgery has an Acute Assessment Unit staffed by a nurse practitioner and doctor.
Appointments can be booked with the nurse practitioner in the Acute Assessment Unit on a same day basis via the surgery appointment system. Home visits where appropriate may also be arranged via the practice co-ordinator.
For further information on the services provided by the nurse practitioner at park surgery, please see the leaflet available at reception.
The Practice Nurses provide a wide range of services including:
Please ask Treatment Room reception for appointment availability.
First vaccinations are given by the doctor at the baby's 6-9 week check. Appointments for subsequent vaccinations should be made with one of the practice nurses. You will be reminded when these are due.

Hello, I am the midwife for Park Surgery. My name is Julie Temple.
As you are now pregnant there are some decisions that you need to make at your first ante-natal appointment. You will have read the options regarding the maternity services that are local to you, which is provided in this pack.
For the majority of your pregnancy, it is hoped that your care will be provided by the Community Midwife and GP at the surgery. However, if during your pregnancy you or your baby have a medical problem, your care may need to be provided at the hospital of your choice.
If you wish such care to be in Horsham at the local hospital, then the hospital where you eventually have baby is East Surrey Hospital, Redhill.
Naturally, where you decide to have baby is your choice. When you see me at the surgery I will need to know where you wish to go, so that provision can be made for you to attend the hospital for the birth.
Your GP makes the initial referral to the Consultant for a patient's ante natal care and then shares ante natal care with the Midwife. The patient is referred to the Consultant at the hospital where the patient chooses to have her baby. This hospital would normally be within the area, i.e. Princess Royal Hospital, Royal Sussex County Hospital or Worthing and Southlands Hospital.
The Midwife is responsible for the general well being of mothers and babies and their ante natal care, and post natal care for up to 28 days after birth. The Midwife informs patients of their options and places for delivery and books the patient for a hospital or home birth. The midwife will discuss ante natal care and advise on diet and smoking and arrange for you to attend parent craft classes.
The Consultant is responsible for advice and management of high risk pregnancies and for any patient who develops problems during the ante natal period, delivery and/or the post natal period.
The Health Visitor will visit during the ante natal period if possible and then is responsible for care and advice for the child from birth to pre-school up to 5 years of age.
The Social Worker will be involved with families who need extra support and advice at what may be a difficult for them. Problems are flagged up by the Midwife, Health Visitor or GP and may range from general family aid to issues around child protection/abuse.
The Ultra Sonographer performs ultrasound scans which would routinely be a Nuchal scan at 12-13 weeks then another anomaly scan at 21 weeks. Scans can be performed at any time throughout the ante natal period to check for growth, dates etc. Any abnormalities detected are referred to either the local Consultant, GP and Midwife or to a London specialist if appropriate.
12 weeks - scan
20-23 weeks - scan
34 weeks -

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.

Park Surgery is located on the north side of Albion Way next to the Albion Way roundabout. Follow the directions for the Park Recreation Centre, which is adjacent to it. There is limited parking at the surgery, and it is often easier to park at one of the nearby multi-storey car parks. Our web site includes a map of the area.
Our aim is to provide cost effective, quality occupational medicine service to companies within the Horsham Area. Our involvement with companies can include:
An assessment of the occupational medicine needs of a company. A company doctor role to handle health reviews, pre-employment selection, hearing, skin and respiratory conservation/surveillance programmes. Other work related assessments (e.g. fork lift truck driver medicals, fitness to work assessments, sickness absence reviews). To keep abreast of changes in the production process and new guidance (including legislation from Europe and HSE), and apply it where necessary. To advise management on any other aspects of workplace medicine and medical practice generally.
At all times, our intention is to advise management in order to maintain and improve productivity in a safe environment.
An occupational medicine service obviously has to work closely with the Health and Safety Adviser employed by the company and sometimes with the HR Department. However, some details of the medical issues (e.g. pre-employment questionnaires) would remain confidential and not accessible by management. This is currently considered best practice and Dr. Dean and Dr Fisher are very aware of all the medico-legal and ethical aspects of an occupational medicine service.
Our occupational medicine service advises management on medical aspects related to the workplace and workforce. We would tailor a suitable programme specifically to the needs of the company.
When appropriate, Nurse led sessions for health surveillance or biological sampling can be arranged either on site or at Park Surgery.
Obviously the doctor and nurse would require a suitable room to be provided if consultations and examinations are performed on site. Usually the first aid room would suffice provided it has a couch. All necessary equipment for sessional work would be provided by Park Surgery.
All outcomes of our work, including pre-employment assessments, would be communicated to the company in writing by Dr. Rattan, and these need to be retained in the employee's file. These statements would not include confidential medical information.
Having a Company Doctor who is also a G.P. helps considerably when unforeseen problems arise, e.g. customers from overseas who are taken ill. In these cases, Dr Rattan and Park Surgery can provide a quick and efficient general medical service to resolve the problem.
Charges are usually made by invoicing for the actual work done, itemised for the time taken and charged at the hourly rate pro-rata.
This is for guidance - all charges are negotiable.
Reporting on pre-employment questionnaires
(If a report is required from the employee's GP, this cost would be additional to this fee)
Biological monitoring Urine
(company must pay for the analysis itself) Blood
Typed Report on health surveillance results
including Breathing Apparatus and Night Workers statements) Vaccinations
30.00 plus vaccine cost
Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS)
Statement to the employer for any of the above
Discounts are negotiable for regular sessional work - please enquire further.
