Budgets
Patients are quite rightly getting more and more frustrated at not getting what they want, when they want it! Please be assured that we are your advocates and we act in your best interests. But we do have to prescribe cost-effectively, and refer for medical reasons when we can't manage your problem, not simply for your peace of mind. You will not find a GP practice these days which will oblige your every wish without discussion!

Photo ID you may be asked for a photo for our records. This reduces problems where patients are mistaken for each other when they consult another GP within the practice. 

 

Chesser Practice

We have been a practice for nearly a hundred years. The surgery was founded by the Chesser family. We have always had PERSONALISED LISTS, and our patients are aware of their registered/usual doctor. If you are unsure, please ask at reception.
We have around 7000 patients whom we feel we treat very well, especially in these recent recession years, which have also affected the NHS
.

Opening Times

Injured or unwell? Don’t just go to A&E

Your local Accident and Emergency (A&E) department is under severe pressure because of the numbers of patients attending the department, often with common health problems that can be better treated elsewhere. To help raise awareness, the “A&E won’t kiss it better”’ campaign is being rolled out across Sutton this winter.

The campaign will remind local people that A&E is not for common health problems, often associated with the colder weather, like coughs and colds but for serious and life-threatening emergencies like loss of consciousness

Dr Jonathan Cockbain, local GP and Urgent Care Clinical Lead for NHS Sutton CCG is reminding local people that A&E is for serious emergencies only. “Hospitals are very busy places all year round, but particularly in the winter months. Every day doctors and nurses who specialise in life-threatening illness spend their time dealing with people who have coughs, back ache, diarrhoea and other minor illnesses.

The Wilson Walk-in Health Centre. This has been running for a while now and as NHS patients you are entitled to use it as a Walk-in centre for your convenience. Some patients have told us that they have been strongly encouraged to register there so that they can get treatment. This is simply not true: you are entitled to use it as a drop-in centre.  It is run by a Private Company  who employ the doctors there, in a different way than the Health Authority governs local longstanding GPs. This is not so obvious from the website and it is only fair to point it out. They are marketing gym membership to join: all local GPs can refer those in need to the local sports centres for significantly reduced membership. We would certainly recommend it as a convenient 8am-8pm 7day Walk-in Centre, which is what it is.



This website is intended to give good quality information and point our patients in the correct direction, so they can help themselves and be more informed. It is a sad fact that the American public know much more about medicine and their drugs than the British. We hope to change that! We are averaging 10,000 monthly website visits, which is nearly twice as many patients as we have on our books!
Please explore the site. You will also find out things about how we run the practice that will help you, and leave you more prepared for when you come to see the doctor or other health professional. Feedback is important to us.
The views expressed here are solely those of Dr Ditri and are not meant to cause any offence to any individual, though they are not intended to be politically correct, but to be honest and direct. The pages are being written as we speak, so do pop back and take another look later. We will try to keep this as up to date as we can, especially the rolling notice board on the left.
