When We Are Closed
The practice’s emergency out-of-hours calls (including Saturday mornings) are covered by Integrated Care 24 (IC24). IC24 is a highly efficient and professional organisation administering a
co-operative of local GPs.
If urgent medical attention is needed when the surgery is closed, please ring the surgery number 01424 847575 or 01424 739420 and you will hear a recorded message giving you the option to be put through to the out-of-hours emergency service.
For patient safety all calls to the service are recorded.
In the unlikely event that you have difficulty contacting the Out of Hours service, in a real emergency, you are advised to dial 999 for an ambulance. Alternatively dial 111.
Walk in clinics are now available to all patients at the Station Plaza Health Centre, Hastings and the Eastbourne Station Health Centre. The centres are open from 08:00 to 20:00 365 days a year.
Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
