Closure of Guestling Surgery

Announcement by Hastings Old Town Surgery

Changes affecting Guestling Surgery and arrangements for your care

It is with deep regret that I have to advise you that we have taken the very difficult decision to permanently close our branch surgery at Guestling. Despite the best efforts of the surgery to maintain a local presence, we will be without premises once our notice period expires on 30th June 2020 and therefore the branch surgery will have to close.

Patients who use Guestling Surgery will remain registered with Hastings Old Town Surgery, and will be able to be seen and access services at the new premises at the Ice House, Rock-a-Nore Road, Hastings, TN34 3DW. This surgery has been recently redesigned, and refurbished and equipped with the needs of all patients firmly in mind. For those without their own transport, there are good public transport links from the Guestling area to the new surgery and, in line with the recent changes made for the Covid-19 pandemic, you will be able to make use of telephone appointments and video consultations.

If you currently use the pharmacy at the Guestling Surgery, there are a number of other pharmacies in the Hastings area, some of which offer delivery options and other additional services. You can find out about nearby pharmacies using the ‘Find a pharmacy’ option on the NHS website. Patients are encouraged to contact pharmacies directly to discuss their policy on deliveries as well as an understanding of exemptions and arrangements.

Should patients wish to seek to register with an alternative practice they should contact East Sussex CCG Primary Care team by phone on 0300 131 4425 or by email at who will be able to help.
