When We Are Closed

Between 18:30 and 08:00 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 has 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.

Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.

Minor Injury

There is a Minor Injury Unit (MIU) at both Crowborough and Uckfield Hospitals available daily from 08:00 to 20:00. This maybe a more appropriate service to use than A&E and it could have shorter waiting times

NHS 111

111 online is a fast and convenient alternative to the 111 phone service and provides an option for people who want to access 111 digitally. 

Your needs will be assessed and you will be given advice about whether you need to:

  • Treat yourself at home
  • Go to a Primary Care Centre

If you need face to face medical attention you may be asked to attend a Primary Care Centre.
