Extended Hours

Extended Hours Clinics for evening and weekend appointments:

We hold clinics outside of our usual working hours to improve accessibility for patients.  We provide additional clinics Monday evening, Tuesday morning, Wednesday evening, Thursday morning and Saturday morning.   Patients from either surgery can book into the clinics at either site. We are pleased to offer both GP and Nurse appointments at these clinics.

Saturday morning surgery from 09:00am - 12:00pm is for pre-booked appointments only. This is not an emergency surgery.  This clinic is alternated between the Firs Surgery and Newick Health Centre.

 

When We Are closed

Please dial 111 between 18:00 and 08:00 and at weekends or Bank Holidays to speak to an NHS 111 trained operator.   Please be prepared to give clear directions to your home if you require a visit.

It is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Calls are free from landlines and mobile phones

When should you call 111?

  • You need medical help fast, but it’s not a 999 emergency
  • You don’t know who to call for medical help or you don’t have a GP to call
  • You think you need to go to A&E or another NHS urgent care service but are not sure which one is most appropriate; or
  • You require health advice or reassurance about what to do next

Our Surgeries are NOT equipped for accident and emergency and do not have a doctor on the premises at all times. If you think you need stitches or have broken something, please go direct to a Minor Injury Unit at Uckfield Hospital, Crowborough War Memorial Hospital or Lewes Victoria Hospital or if more urgent, the Accident and Emergency Department at your nearest Hospital.

If the incident is more urgent please dial 999 for an Ambulance.

NHS 111 Online

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:

  • Treat yourself at home
