Out Of Hours

 

Surgery opening hours are detailed on the opening hours page.

 

You will be able to access the Out of Hours emergency service by calling NHS 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 and 111.

 

What if I'm not sure whether I need to see a Doctor or not?

 

You can call NHS 111 if you or someone you know is worried about a health-related problem but you're not sure if you need to see a Doctor. NHS 111 is open 24/7 every day of the year.

 

What should if I know I need a some treatment but maybe not a Doctor?

 

Our local pharmacies can help you with a broad range of problems, from coughs and colds, to stings and bites and many things in between.

 

Where should I go if I have a sprain, a burn or possible fracture?

 

Thinking of going to A & E? Our local minor injury unit may be able to help, based at Bognor.

 

When should I go to Accident and Emergency (A & E)?

 

This service is for patients who have serious life threatening illnesses and injuries, such as loss of consciousness, severe chest pain, fitting, breathing difficulties, severe bleeding. If in doubt phone 999.

 

Should I still call 999 in an emergency?

 

YES. If someone is seriously ill, for example with chest pains, severe bleeding, serious difficulty in breathing, or has collapsed then you should dial 999 as you would normally expect to do.
