I live in Ringmer and it is a very good surgery. Lovely front desk staff, good nurses and good GPs.
It can get busy because it serves Barcombe & Glynde as well as Ringmer, but I've come to the conclusion that all GP surgeries are really busy.

What is it you find so bad about school hill surgery? Can you elaborate? Then we can judge whether it's just school hill, or whether your complaints are about the way GP surgeries are in general. They are all overloaded, all short of appointments, all under pressure.......

I'm with Roy, very happy with School Hill, and I see a lot of them. I hope you get sorted but wonder if you will be any happier elsewhere. If it's just one doctor you don't get on with, which is fair enough, you can ask to see another one.

Never had anything but fantastic service from School Hill. I changed from River lodge/Ringmer for the opposite reason.

"Victoria Hospital think they are dangerous" is quite an allegation. Can you back that up? Who is able to speak for the entire hospital? It sounds as though you should move, for the sake of the School Hill staff, pleasant receptionists included, although not necessarily for the good of whoever ends up with you next.

I can't comment about School Hill, but the Vic is a great facility. The minor injuries unit is fantastic, physios are terrific and it's really handy that some specialists run clinics there, which saves people the time, trouble and expense of travelling to Brighton or Haywards Heath.
With regards to Ringmer surgery, isn't it an outpost of River Lodge?

Few too many bacardi and cokes last night horseman7? I do feel a bit for op as only one sensible response from Harriet. Very sanctimonious bunch on this forum.

Yes, Ringmer surgery and River Lodge are twin surgeries run by the same GPs. However, although they're twin surgeries, Ringmer surgery is far superior to River Lodge in terms of the inside building environment, the reception staff, the nurses and the running of the surgery. The Drs work between the 2 surgeries. I can highly recommend Dr Grigori. So, OP, if you're going to switch to Ringmer surgery, be sure to get your appts at Ringmer itself, not river lodge, for an all round more pleasant experience.
Don't forget, if you change surgeries and don't like the new one, you can always change to another one, or even return to school hill. You can register and re-register as often as you like providing you're in the catchment area of the surgery.
I'm not sure why you've received so many odd replies to your post OP.
I expect I'll receive thumbs downs just for saying this.

Ringmer surgery is great and Iíll echo what someone previously wrote about River Lodge/Ringmer, the Ringmer surgery is nicer in terms of atmosphere & service. Both run out of hours appointments for patients who work full time or commute, which is really handy. Never had a problem with the Doctors in either surgery, Dr Dinglestad is fantastic and has done a great job looking after me over the last year.

All three Lewes/Ringmer practices have good performance records and quality standards by East Sussex standards. None of them are perfect. One, for example, is below average at getting its babies immunised. Another has an excellent record immunising babies but is poor at calling them back for boosters when they start school. All three have generally good records overall and generally satisfied patients. However, there will always be some doctor-patient relationships that break down, and the best solution then is for the patient to move. At least in Lewes we do currently have a choice. They could easily all decide to merge together when we eventually get a new super-practice premises down in the North Street Quarter, if that ever happens.

Fairmeadow you're out of touch.
They ARE all going to merge in to a super- centre practice when the new development goes ahead (which it is).
That's already been signed and sealed.

My experience of Ringmer surgery is that it's generally very good. The reception staff and doctors are good, have seen one very nice nurse there, and another that was really sharp and I hope not to see her again - so a bit mixed.
