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.

Home Visits

doctor's bagIf you are housebound or too ill to come to the surgery, a doctor will visit you at home. Please ring before 10.30am where possible; this will normally ensure a visit from your own doctor.

If you can get to the Health Centre, this helps the doctor as home visits are very time consuming. The Health Centre has better facilities for examination and treatment. Children with fevers or rashes can be placed in a separate room and seen quickly.

Difficulties with transport can often be met by LINK (Tel: 01883 713333).
