IT DISTRESSED me very much to read in your item “best and worst GP surgeries revealed” (The Argus, August 14) that the Woodingdean Medical Centre ranked so poorly.

It may be that some patients have had bad experiences, but as an elderly man with inevitable medical conditions which come with age, I can only say that I have received first-class treatment and care ever since the practice in the Ridgeway closed down.

Prescriptions filled speedily, called in for annual check-ups regularly, patient and friendly doctors and so forth.

Indeed, may it be that that the Woodingdean’s Centre absorption of so many patients from the Ridgeway caused a few hiccups from which some patients suffered?

I have nothing but the fullest praise and total confidence in the Woodingdean Medical Centre.
