ADDITIONAL GP SERVICES AT CATERHAM DENE


NHS services are there for you when you need them. But many people are using urgent care services with health concerns that could be treated by a GP or pharmacist. This makes these services very busy and means you and others may have to wait longer to be treated.


The NHS is doing everything it can to prepare for the extra pressures and demands over the busy winter months.


You can #HelpMyNHS to give the best care by making sure you and your loved ones get the right care, at the right time, in the right place. This website helps you do this by highlighting where you can get medical treatment that is right for you. It includes details on the alternative services to A&E and GPs, along with tips on using of GP appointments properly, taking steps to help prevent getting ill and self-manage minor illnesses, as well as other services, such as pharmacists.


It is tailored to include listings on specific services available to you across Sussex and East Surrey.

Evening and weekend GP appointments

Evening and weekend access to GP appointments


GP appointments are now available during the evening and at the weekend for people registered with a GP in East Surrey.


This means that both routine and urgent appointments are available at a local hub during weekday evenings and on a Saturday and Sunday, to make sure local people get the health help and support they need.


NHS East Surrey CCG, working in partnership with local patients and clinicians, designed the service. The appointment hubs are run by Alliance for Better Care Ltd, the local GP Federation.


How to book an evening or weekend appointment at a hub:


Appointments can be booked through your own GP practice in the normal way, during normal opening hours.


Clinicians working at the hubs will have access to your medical records with your agreement. You will be asked before any information is shared and can decline if you wish.


Your help to design this new service


In preparation for this additional, improved access to GP care, we sought the views and experiences of local patients and the public through a survey. The results can be found here:
