Little Common Surgery

82 Cooden Sea Rd, Bexhill-on-Sea TN39 4SP, UK – 01424 847575

I have been a patient of Dr Al Shamma for 3 .5 years and seen him on a number of occasions. He is a charming man who seems genuinely concerned about my health problems and is an active listener. He has referred me promptly for my treatment as and when appropriate. I am a health professional myself and I have been impressed with the examinations he has undertaken prior to my treatment and further referral. He is also happy to refer me to another colleague for a view if he considers it appropriate. My previous experiences of GPs in the past have not been always as positive.

My experience with this surgery is very good. It sorted out my issues promptly. The staffs are welcoming. Yes, there is a queue to get an face to face appointment but it is true for all the surgery. More importantly, it is possible to speak with the gp in the same day over phone and i found this very helpful.

These guys have been my doctors for the last 15 years. I have have enough stupid medical issues to mean that I have had to attend the surgery a lot. The "phone in by 8 or phone back at 2" system is annoying since it is close to impossible to get through at 8 and plenty of working people are not able to call back at 2. I have suggested many times that, even if the doctors aren't available between 1 and 2, the phone line should still be open for people to call during their lunch breaks. Nonetheless, once you do get through, the doctors are generally great. They actually listen (I have heard many people tell me about their own GPs simply never really listening to them) and give you their time. I've never been rushed even though my consultations often end up covering a number of issues. I have been listened to. My concerns are always taken seriously. There is no reluctance to send me for further testing or to refer me on to a specialist if the problem seems to require it. There used to be a doctor there who was awful but he was only a locum and he has since retired. Currently, all of the permanent GPs are good but obviously I cannot comment on the locums as they come and go so I wouldn't know about them. Overall, if you can get past the unhelpful phone system, then you'll get a doctor who will listen to you, give you their time, and who will help you as much as possible and pass you on to a specialist if your problem is beyond their remit. That's exactly what I want from a doctor.

NHS Direct is now NHS 24. Just dial 111 to speak to a professional or click the link below for there self help website. Lots of really useful info but keep clear of heart surgery! If in doubt ask your GP or call 111. Good luck.
