Welcome To Ashdown Forest
Health Centre

The Forest Row Practice started in 1876 at "The Elms", the house which stands opposite the health centre.

In 1968 it moved across the Lewes Road to a house on the present site, which was demolished to make way for the present day health centre which opened in 1982. The old oil street lamp at the entrance to the health centre formerly stood outside "The Elms" and was lit nightly by the doctor's coachman to guide the patients to the surgery.

Now electrified, it continues to serve the same purpose more than 100 years later.

There is one group of seven doctors working as a non-limited partnership and you may ask to see any doctor, although you will be registered with a specific GP for administrative purposes. You and your family will be asked to complete the registration forms.

The Health Centre is open Monday to Friday 8.30am - 6.30pm and closed daily between 12.30 - 1.30pm. We are also open alternate Saturdays 9.00am - 11.30am.

Online Prescriptions & Appointments

systmonline

We use systmonline for ordering repeat prescriptions and booking appointments online. Before you can use this service please contact reception to register for it. If you have already registered and wish to login, please click the systmonline logo above.

If you are a user of our previous on-line ordering system (Emis) your user name and password may still be working, if you find it is not, please contact reception who would be happy to assist.

Car Parking

There is limited space at the health centre so, to help those who are less able, please use one of the free car parks in Hartfield Road or walk if possible.
If you do come by car, do not leave it parked at the health centre, even when collecting prescriptions from the local chemist.

Access

The health centre is purpose-built for wheelchair access and has suitable toilet facilities for the disabled as well as a baby-changing area.

Consideration To Other Patients

We ask patients not to use mobile telephones inside the health centre and to keep children as quiet as reasonably possible. Remember that some patients will be feeling very unwell.

Privacy

Please let us know if you wish your enquiry to be dealt with away from the reception desk.
