Any recommendations of a good local GP/ doctors surgery?

St. Andrews Surgery does me very well. I am particularly fond of Dr Ross (although I have a feeling he might not suffer fools, neurotics and hypochondriacs gladly). All the doctors I have seen there have been good.

We use Ringmer Surgery, which has the added benefit of being the sister surgery to The Riverlodge. If we can't get an appointment in one then there is always the other one to try (and there is parking). Doctors are great too.

Been happy with School Hill surgery for many years now. Only problem is parking and walking up that bloody hill !!!

They seem a mixed bunch at Riverlodge to me. Fortunately one particularly bad one has retired. Awful appointments system too.

St Andrews surgery seems ok, not that I have to visit very often fortunately. I have never had any difficulty in getting a same-day appointment there, unlike other surgeries.

Couldn't agree more about Riverlodge, although Dr Brickley is great.

I can definitely recommend St Andrews surgery, I have used it a lot (unfortunately!) and all the doctors I have seen have a great manner about them and are very helpful.

I've been using School Hill Surgery for quite a few years and think it's good. Handily close to Bakers pharmacy too. They've also just gone high tech with online appointment booking and repeat prescriptions, though that may be standard with doctors' surgeries these days.

Another vote for St Andrews. We used to be with River Lodge but I had some bad experiences there with both doctors and receptionists. Changed to St A's and have been really pleased with it. The receptionists are friendly and helpful, the doctors all seem really nice - all really good with kids.

Laughter is the best medicine. A dear friend was on his last legs and his Doc came in an prescribed very powerful medication, my friend asked what the long term side effects would be, Doc repled he should not worry as he would not be taking them long enough to find out! My friend was in fits of laughter, he loved the bedside manner I can tell you. Well, must dash. Best, Peter

Another who was sick of Riverlodge, went to St Andrews for some decent treatment, not some softy who'd sign you off for a sniffle. I now get treated properly for my chronic health issues, thanks Dr Ross, legend.
