Welcome to Saxonbury House Surgery.

Saxonbury House Medical Group provide the highest standards in healthcare for all patients in the area. We are able to offer a wide variety of appointments including same day appointments, prebookable appointments, pre bookable weekend appointments to suit your needs.

The Practice

Saxonbury House is deceptively spacious and was converted from a private house in 1970. Enlarged and modernised in 1985 and again in 2006 with a two storey extention to the rear, it offers a pleasant and welcoming atmosphere with easy access for the disabled. The air conditioned waiting room has a children’s corner with books and toys available to keep younger patients amused while waiting for appointments.

We have 6 GP consultation rooms, 2 GP trainee rooms, 3 Practice Nurse rooms, a phlebotomy room, dedicated mental health counselling room and a large conference room for training and meetings. We also host a private podiatrist, private osteopath, private physiotherapy service and other NHS services including Why weight, Scrivens audiology, rheumatology and the new community geriatrician. Further information on these can be seen in the 'Our Services' section.


The practice area covers Crowborough and  used to extend to the surrounding villages of Rotherfield, High Hurstwood, Fairwarp and parts of Mayfield, Groombridge, Nutley and Hadlow Down. We have applied and been approved to have our boundary reduced. This is currently being placed on a digital map which we will display as soon as it's available.

We are part of NHS High Weald Lewes Havens CCG, (for more information visit which is part of the NHS. The Commissioning Group covers the area from Forest Row across to Wadhurst in the north and down to the south coast from East Saltdean to Newhaven, including Lewes, Uckfield, Crowborough and Heathfield.


Dr Bennion and Dr Sneddon achieved their training qualification last year and we are now an approved teaching practice. This is becoming a very key area due to the additional number of doctors required over the coming years. The doctors we train are already qualified and working toward their qualification as General Practitioners. Dr Padgham also trains medical students and further information can be viewed under 'Our Services'.

Working together

This is facilitated by our dedicated team which includes six doctors (of which four are partners) and an excellent Nursing team including a nurse prescriber. 

Please see our Clinics & Services page for a comprehensive list of what is available. 

We also benefit from having Chappells Pharmacy in our premises to help expedite the processing of your prescriptions.
