2016 Flu Newsletter
We regretfully wish to inform the community that from Monday 5th September, Leacroft Medical Practice will be capping its patient list. This means that with the exception of newborn babies and family members living at the same address as a current patient, we will be temporarily disallowing all new patient registrations. Existing patients will not be affected.
There is currently a national GP shortage, and this means we cannot safely continue to register new patients. We have not taken this decision lightly, and we have done so in the best interests of our existing patient population. We thank you for your understanding, and we hope we will be able to open our list again soon.
If you are not currently registered with a GP surgery and are finding it difficult to locate one, please call NHS England on 01293 729298 and ask to speak to the GP Allocation Team.
On Wednesday 13th July, we were proud to host some local charities and organisations who came to Leacroft to provide information to our patients. The organisations involved were the Carers Support service, who offered advice about the support available to carers both young and old; Springboard Project, a local community-based charity who support disabled children and young people in developing active social lives with inclusive recreational activities; and representation from the International Glaucoma Association, who raised awareness of the disease and the help available to those affected.
The day was very successful, and we would like to thank everyone involved. If you would like any further information about any of the services please contact the Practice.

Leacroft Medical practice is a fully approved training practice with approximately 9,500 registered patients. We provide a full range of medical services from our purpose built surgery located in Langley Green, Crawley, West Sussex which opened in May 2010.
We have a number of Specialist GP registrars (SGPR) in training. A SGPR can stay with us for up to 1 year and is a fully qualified and competent doctor who after a period of hospital training wishes to continue his/her career in general practice.
We run many clinics for the management of chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes and offer a wide variety of other medical services including antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups.
