Appointments

We always try to ensure your consultation will start punctually, but please be patient if there is a delay as this may have been due to an emergency.

The doctors and nurses at this surgery work to an appointment system. You can make an appointment by telephoning 01273 555401 or by calling into the practice during our opening hours. GP appointments are also available to book online, if you have registered for access to online services. Our aim is to offer you an appointment on the same day but you can book up to 4 weeks ahead.

Longer Appointments

Routine GP appointments are 10 minutes but if you feel you need a longer appointment, please tell the receptionist when booking, so that you can be allocated the time necessary.

Chaperones

The practice has trained chaperones. Please ask at reception if you would like a chaperone to accompany you during your consultation.

Practice Extended Hours Appointments

We offer additional pre-booked appointments on:

  • Monday evenings 18:30 – 20:00  (GP and Practice Nurse appointments available)
  • Saturday mornings 08:30 – 10:30. (GP appointments only)

The surgery phone lines and doors are closed during the extended period. If you need to cancel an appointment for one of these extended hours surgeries please telephone to cancel within usual practice hours or cancel via our online booking service 24/7 (you must be registered for this service).

Access to the surgery during these times is for patients with appointments only. If you require medical advice when the practice is closed you should contact the out of hours service on 111 as usual or if it is a medical emergency 999.

More appointments available on a weekend and late evenings via EHS (Extended Hours Service) 

We are also able to offer pre-booked appointments every weekend Sat & Sun 08:00 -14:00 and weeknights Mon – Fri 18:30 – 20:00. If these appointment times are more convenient, please let our reception team know and they can arrange for you to be seen by a doctor during these times. Nurse appointments are also available during the weekend clinics 08:00 – 14:00.

If you need to cancel one of these appointments at short notice, or when the practice is closed, please call 07702335868 and leave a message.

These appointments are held in our building at 175 Preston Road and are provided by GPs and Nurses from practices within Brighton and Hove.

This has been made possible through the EPiC project, now underway which is dedicated to improve access to primary healthcare services in Brighton and Hove. For more information regarding this project and how it may affect you, please visit http://epic-pmchallengefund.uk/

Telephone Appointments

If you need advice on a health problem that you feel could be answered over the telephone or you are unsure whether you need to be seen, we offer telephone appointments each day with a GP. Please contact the surgery on the usual appointments number 01273 555401. The receptionist will take your details and the GP will call you back at a time advised by the receptionist. Unfortunately we cannot telephone outside the UK.
