How To Book An Appointment

Your pharmacy can advise you on minor illness without the need of an appointment. Please speak to a pharmacist first.

Pharmacy & Self-Care

Pharmacists are qualified healthcare professionals who can offer clinical advice, over the counter medicines and their use, to effectively and safely manage a range of minor health concerns. They can also help you to decide whether you'll need to see a doctor. You don't need an appointment and you won't even be asked to make a purchase. Every pharmacy also has a private consultation area for you to talk about your symptoms in private if you prefer.

Urgent Appointments

All requests to see a doctor will be assessed by a triage doctor before you are given an appointment.

You will need to telephone the surgery on 01903 735200 and ask for an appointment. If you can give the receptionist some information as to why you would like to see the doctor or nurse, this will help in directing you to the most appropriate clinician.

You will need to provide a telephone number that we can contact you on when we call. A doctor will call you back as soon as possible (we aim to call back within two hours). They will help you over the phone if possible, if not, they will book an appropriate appointment with you at the time.

Doctors will be triaging all morning so you do not need to call at 8.00am, although calling before 10.00am would be helpful.

Book a Routine Appointment

If you are already seeing a doctor regularly regarding an on-going condition, reception will be able to book you in with that doctor up to two weeks in advance, availability permitting.

Improved Access

GP and nurse appointments are now available during the evening and at the weekend for people across coastal West Sussex.

This means that urgent appointments are available till 8.00pm during the week, and during clinics on a Saturday and Sunday.

This aims to improve access to GP appointments and help local people to get the help and support they need. The service is run by Innovations in Primary Care (IPC), a not-for-profit company owned by local GP practices.

The appointments will be available at local GP access hubs, run from GP surgeries. They will be both routine and urgent appointments with a doctor, nurse or healthcare professional.

The teams will see new illnesses when you urgently need to see a health professional, and offer planned appointments such as family planning and smear tests that can be hard to arrange whilst at work or when you are caring for family or a loved one.

IPC has been running the MIAMI clinics in Adur and Worthing for the last three years, which has offered a very similar service, offering help for ‘minor injury assessment and minor illnesses’.

These clinics have been successful and helped local people to access the help they need outside of normal opening times.

We hope that this roll out of the hubs across the whole of coastal west Sussex will mean that all patients registered with a GP practice in our area can benefit.

Patients book into the GP access hubs via their normal GP practice, and may be offered an appointment at one of the hubs at the weekend if they call NHS 111 for urgent health advice and support.

The hubs may be at your GP practice or they may be at a neighbouring GP practice locally in the community around you.

The teams will have access to your medical records with your consent, and any care they provide will be added to your notes so your GP practice can continue any ongoing care.

Patients can book into these appointments by calling on  01903 735200, the practice will be able to access the booking system and make sure you receive the help and support you need.
