Welcome to Cowfold Medical Group
The Surgeries in Cowfold and Partridge Green provide the highest quality healthcare to patients in the West Sussex area. Our doctors, nurses and ancillary staff are dedicated to offering a professional service and we hope this surgery website will help keep all our patients up to date with news and information about our practice.
As well as a source of information about our practice, the staff and the services we provide and how to access them, we hope you will use this website as a useful resource for other health-related information. We welcome your feedback on the site to improve our online services and further develop its contents.
You will also be able to access any surveys we are running via the website.

NEW PATIENT REGISTRATIONS
With immediate effect we will no longer be accepting new patients.
We regret that it has been necessary to take this course. Patient safety is paramount to us in times of an ever increasing workload. We have made concerted efforts to recruit more GPs, which has proved challenging due to a national shortage in GP numbers.
We will be undertaking this in a non-discriminatory way and we will therefore have to refuse everyone.
CHANGE OF REGISTERED GP: JANUARY 2019
Dr Smy left the Practice on Friday 28 December 2018.
With effect from 29 December 2018 all patients currently registered with Dr Smy will be reallocated to the remaining GPs according to their surname as follows:
Patients: A-C: Dr Carter
Patients: D-F: Dr Smethurst
Patients: G-L: Dr Webb
Patients: M-W: Dr Smethurst
This is on a temporary basis pending the recruitment of a new GP.
Unfortunately it is not possible to write to 1500 patients notifying them of this temporary change.
Dr Winnie Kwong, Dr John Darcy, Dr Jenny Willis, Dr Corinne Fletcher and Dr Tim McMinn will all offer Locum sessions at the practice.
Patients will be able to book an appointment with any of these GPs or with their own registered GP.
LAUNCH OF EVENING AND WEEKEND GP APPOINTMENTS
A new weekend and evening GP service has been commissioned through Alliance for Better Care (ABC) to provide additional access to primary care services. New GP Hubs will be operating in Mid Sussex which will offer pre-bookable GP appointments for patients registered with a practice in Mid Sussex. Weekday evening appointments are being offered from Dolphins Practice in Haywards Heath and from Cuckfield Practice. Saturday appointments are available in Burgess Hill. You can book an appointment by contacting Cowfold Surgery in the normal way during our opening hours. GPs working at the Hubs will be able to access your medical records. In order to book an appointment you will need to give your agreement to this at the time of booking.
Online appointment booking is now available for G.P. appointments. Please go to the appointments page for more information.
We would like to invite Patients to join a Patient Representative Group for their feedback and to help us improve the services we offer.
Please see our "Patient Representative Group" tab on the right hand side of your screen.
