GP Services – Extended Access Survey 2017

Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) plan and buy healthcare services for the local population in your area.

National funding is available from 2018 to improve access to GP services. This includes ensuring that everyone has more convenient access to GP services, including a mixture of same day and routine appointments on weekday evenings after 6.30pm, and at weekends based on local needs. This piece of work is known as ‘delivering extended access to GP services’.

As local CCGs we are currently considering how best to deliver extended access in your area so that it meets the needs of our population, is realistically deliverable within the budget we have been allocated to provide this additional service. There is a national and local shortage of GPs and other clinicians who work in general practice. This means that extended access services could be provided at a venue other than your own surgery and that you may not see your own GP or even a GP from your usual practice. Should that GP need to access your medical records, your consent will be sought when you book the appointment.

The CCGs would like to find out more about your views on extending access to GP services in the evenings and at weekends.

By completing the survey you have the opportunity to tell us:

• How likely you are to use GP appointments in the evenings and weekends.

• The kind of services you might want to use in the evenings and at weekends.

• Whether you would consider alternatives to face to face consultations.



The survey only takes a couple of minutes to complete. Here is the link:




If you have any queries regarding this survey please contact the Primary Care and Community Development Team at NHS Horsham and Mid Sussex CCG/NHS Crawley CCG on 01293 600300 x4138 or send an email to: HSCCG.Primary-Care@nhs.net

Road Works


You may have noticed the roadworks in the village.

The Parish Council have managed to obtain a grant from WSCC to help alleviate flooding in the village, it won’t stop it all but it should help. This continued from a grant obtained previously.

Hopefully, if more grants are available and a case can successfully be made, further work can be carried out in the future.

Dog Walking

Hi People of Poynings!

I’m Colin’s niece and I have just started what I think is a pretty unique dog walking service!

I differ from normal dog walkers because I take your furry friend to ten acres of enclosed private land to let them run and socialise only with the dogs they have been carefully introduced to.

After an hour of exercise and play your dog will be given a mini groom and dropped back home.

All this for just £12, although if you have two dogs that goes down to £9.50 and any dog coming five or more times a week only £9!

Thanks for your time and look forward to hearing from you. For more info here is my website, Facebook and Instagram pages.
