Out of Hours

Important Information

NHS services are there for you when you need them. But many people are using urgent care services with health concerns that could be treated by a GP or pharmacist. This makes these services very busy and means you and others may have to wait longer to be treated.

The NHS is doing everything it can to prepare for the extra pressures and demands over the busy winter months.

You can #HelpMyNHS to give the best care by making sure you and your loved ones get the right care, at the right time, in the right place. This website helps you do this by highlighting where you can get medical treatment that is right for you. It includes details on the alternative services to A&E and GPs, along with tips on using of GP appointments properly, taking steps to help prevent getting ill and self-manage minor illnesses, as well as other services, such as pharmacists.

It is tailored to include listings on specific services available to you across Sussex and East Surrey.
