Fairfield Surgery was purpose built in 1992 to provide the residents of Burwash and the surrounding villages with a convenient and easily accessible means to consult their General Practitioners. Dr. Jane Woodgate joined the practice in 1987, followed by Dr. Bruce Packham in 1992 and Dr. Mathew Thomas in 2002. The doctors have a partnership contract but not a limited partnership.

The practice is not a training practice but does encourage and participate in the teaching of health care professionals.

The doctors have close working relationships with many members of the community health staff. As a team they provide primary health care to over 4000 patients. The doctors welcome new patients from within the practice area that covers Burwash Parish, and a number of areas outside the Parish boundaries.

The surgery has suitable access and facilities for all disabled patients.

Friends of Burwash Surgery

The Friends support the surgery and its services in any way they can. They also help with the funding of equipment not supplied by the NHS, which is beneficial to patients, either generally or specifically.

The Friends are always looking for volunteer drivers to help deliver prescriptions, run patients to and from the surgery, and occasionally to local hospitals.

Details of how you can help are available from Fairfield reception.
