When We Are Closed
Outside of normal surgery hours calls (urgent care only) are covered by an out-of-hours service provider. If you need to speak to a Doctor, please always telephone the surgery first on 01273 604220, and listen carefully to the answer machine message. It will give you contact details for the duty doctor or the out-of-hours provider.
Some daytime hours are covered for urgent problems only by a rota with North Laines Medical Centre.
You can also contact the NHS 111 service for help and advice about any medical problem. Just ring 111. The service is free to call 24 / 7 365 days a year when you need medical help but it's not a 999 emergency.
NHS 111 provides a single point of contact, including access to out-of-hours GP services and advice and services previously accessed through NHS Direct.
Brighton & Hove Walk in Centre
Open 7 days a week from 8.00am—8.00pm including Bank Holidays (although the sexual health service closes at 7pm) next to Brighton train station:
Aspect House, 84-87 Queens Road, Brighton BN1 3XE.
The nearest accident department is at The Royal Sussex County Hospital.
Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a Doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
