Message from the Partners regarding the absence of Dr Karen Crawford-Clarke
The partners and the staff of Henfield Medical Centre express their great sorrow and loving support to Dr Karen Crawford-Clarke at the death of her son Paddy on Thursday 10th December in a road accident.
This catastrophe feared by all parents, has brought much grief into Karen’s life and we wish to share our kindred spirit with her and her family at this terrible moment.
We know too that a great many friends among the patients will want to express their fellow feelings as well, we are sure that patients will understand Karen’s absence from the surgery in the coming weeks.
The comprehension of her loss we hope will enable all the patients to accept changes to appointments and routine procedures.
Dr Patrick Reade for The Henfield Medical Centre
Our Practice Profile
Henfield Medical Practice is a GP training and dispensing practice which operates from two sites, the main surgery at Henfield and a branch surgery at Partridge Green. The practice area is mainly rural and has a growing population due to local development. The current list size is approximately 9500.
There are currently 6 GP Partners at Henfield Medical Centre and the Practice has been a training Practice for many years, with three of the GPs being trainers which means we have additional doctors in the surgery on placements of up to one year.
We operate from well equipped, purpose built premises which were extended in 2010 to provide 12 consulting rooms, two treatment rooms, a dispensary, library, counselling room and a purpose built physiotherapy suite. The practice has on site chiropody, physiotherapy and counsellor, as well weekly sessions with the clinical psychologist, midwife and geriatric psychiatrist.
The branch surgery at Partridge Green, approximately 3 miles north of Henfield, was converted to surgery use in 1989 and consists of a small reception and waiting area, a GP consulting room and nurses treatment room.
We employ four part time nurses who cover both surgery sites and also four health care assistants offering phlebotomy and health clinics. We also have an attached pharmacist. The practice nurses hold chronic disease and travel clinics, and a practice nurse also runs a minor illness alongside the open surgery already held daily by the duty doctor.
District Nurses and Health Visitors are linked to the Practice and complete the nursing team.
Clinical staff are supported by a team of 17 ancillary staff. The practice uses SystmOne clinical software and is an electronic paper-light surgery.
We have an active patient participation group who have helped build a good relationship between the surgery and patients. They produce a six monthly newsletter and help patient education by arranging regular consultant talks. They also help to raise funds for a local trust set up to assist with the purchase of equipment for the surgery.
