Out of Hours
Between 6.30pm and 8.00am weekdays, all weekend and on bank holidays you can access urgent health care via NHS 111 and South East Health. Telephone 111 - this is a free call. Your call will be answered by trained operators who will arrange the most appropriate action for you. This may be a phone call from a doctor, a trip to a primary care centre or a visit from a mobile doctor. Calls are recorded.
Please ensure that your medical need is urgent and cannot wait until the surgery is next open. Routine requests for medical attention just delay the response to those whose need is more pressing.
South East Health have been commissioned to provide the out-of-hours cover in this locality.
Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

Alternatives to A&E
There is a Minor Injury Unit (MIU) at both Crowborough and Uckfield Hospitals available daily from 8.00 am to 8 pm. This maybe a more appropriate service to use than A&E and it could have shorter waiting times
Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
