Appointments 01903 734999
 
Appointments with doctors and practice nurses may be made by telephoning or by calling at the surgery. Emergencies and Acute illnesses will always be seen as soon as is possible. Appointments will not be made too far ahead in order to avoid clogging the system and causing delays.
 
 
You can now book appointments and order your repeat prescription online. Click here to login once you have your username and password.
 
To use the SystmOnline web service, you need a username and password which is generated by the surgery. You can either do this in person at the Reception Desk, or by sending a request in writing. If you enclose a stamped envelope, we will post the log-in details to you. Do not telephone the surgery to request a username and password as we cannot deal with this over the phone.
 
Home Visits
Home visits are made by arrangement with your doctor. Please only request a home visit if the patient is genuinely unable to be brought to the surgery. Home visits are only made for medical reasons, not social reasons such as lack of transport.
 
Patients with temperatures and rashes may often be quite safely brought to the surgery, but please inform the receptionist on arrival.
 
Whenever possible, please make requests for home visits between 8.30 and 11.00am. Calls for visits after 12 noon will be dealt with by the duty doctor.

Telephone Advice
If you only want quick advice on a health matter or medication, the most convenient time to contact the doctor or nurse is between 11.00am and 12 noon.

Test Results
If you wish to telephone the surgery to obtain the results of investigations from the doctor, please ring 717154 after 2.00pm when the telephones should be less busy.

Out of Hours
If you require urgent medical advice/attention that cannot wait until the surgery re-opens please dial 111.  NHS 111 is a new telephone service for people in Sussex to call if they need medical help fast but are not in a life-threatening situation. The easy to remember phone number - that is available across the country - has been introduced to help people get the right help, at the right time, especially at weekends and out of hours.

 
NHS 111 is free to call and is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
 
The service is available for people who aren’t sure if they need to go to A&E, need more information about where to get NHS help or generally need reassurance and advice.  By calling NHS 111, you will reach a team of fully trained advisers, and experienced nurses and doctors who will assess your condition and direct you to the local service that can help you best, when you need it.
 
There are now only three numbers to know; 999 for life-threatening emergencies, your GP surgery (01903 717154) and 111.
