We provide a range of services and clinics.

Other NHS Services

As well as our practice, there are many other local NHS services you can contact for health advice and information of treatment. Before you do, remember that you can treat many minor ailments such as colds, coughs and indigestion by keeping a well-stocked medicine cabinet at home.


  • Keep the medicine chest in a secure, locked place out of reach of small children
  • Watch expiry dates—do not keep or use medicines past their sell-by date
  • Take all unwanted and out-of-date medicines back to the pharmacy

NHS 111

NHS 111 is a new telephone service for people in Sussex to to find out where they can access medical help fast but are not in a life-threatening situation. 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. 

The easy to remember 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. 

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.
