When We Are Closed
When the practice is closed, our telephone answer phone system will ask you to hang up and dial 111. Previously you would be automatically transferred to South East Health Limited which provides the out-of-hours emergency doctor service for the region but now access to the out-of-hours doctor is controlled by the NHS 111 servcie.
Eastbourne Station Health Centre (Walk-In Centre)
An NHS health centre located at Eastbourne train station offers a walk-in service 7 days a week from 08:00 - 20:00. Anyone can see a GP or nurse here whether they are local residents or visitors to the town and regardless of whether they are registered with the health centre practice, another GP surgery or not registered with a practice at all. Appointments can be made in person at the centre or by calling 01323 726650 during opening hours
This replaced NHS Direct. By telephoning 111 you will speak to a call handler who can put you in contact with a doctor or nurse who will triage your medical requirments. Your needs will be assessed and advice offered or arrangements made for you to see a doctor.
Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
