When We Are Closed

closed_signPlease dial 111 between 18:30 and 08:30 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.

The Health Centre is NOT equipped as a casualty station and does 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 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 is the free number to call when you have an urgent healthcare need. It directs you to the right local service, first time.

It is available across the whole of England making it easier for you to access urgent healthcare services when you need medical help fast.

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

When should you call it?

  • 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

How does it work?

  • When you call 111 you will be assessed by fully trained advisers who are supported by experienced nurses and paramedics. They will ask you questions to assess your symptoms and give you the healthcare advice you need or direct you straightaway to the local service that can help you best.
  • If the NHS 111 team think you need an ambulance, they will send one immediately.
