How can I access a GP or a Nurse?

GP:
If you require advice from a GP or another Clinician on the day, please call 01903 234 844 to speak to a member of the Patient Services Team any weekday between 8am and 12pm. Excluding days we are closed for training. If you call after 12pm when our GP services hit full capacity and you have a new illness that cannot wait for the next day please visit the Urgent Care Centre at Worthing Hospital. If you have an complex or urgent ongoing issue that is already being dealt with at the Practice and you cannot wait for the next day, call the Reception Team who can assist with a booking. If it is an emergency please visit your nearest A&E or call 999 for an ambulance. If you need help while we are closed please call the provided out of hours number or call 111.

Nurse:
If you require assistants from a Practice Nurse, then please call us on 01903 234 844 and speak to a member of the Patient Services Team. Alternatively, you can book smear tests, blood tests if you have been asked to have one by a Clinician, NHS health health checks if you have been invited via Patient Access or the NHS App.

I haven’t received my call from the GP yet, will they still ring?

We are open until 6:30pm, Monday to Friday, and a clinician will call you back between now and the surgery closing time today.
If it is a medical emergency please visit A&E.

Clinicians can call anytime up to 18.30pm Monday to Friday. If you haven’t yet had a call back but your symptoms have worsened please contact to let us know.

I would like to order a medical certificate.

You can order a medical certificate extension by giving us a call or via the accuRx online triage system

Patient Triage is a quick and easy way to access your medical records, request medical advice, view test results, request medical certificates, access self-help advice and more. If you have not yet spoken to a GP about your need for a medical certificate then you will need to speak to a GP first which you can arrange either by the Patient Triage option or calling the Practice between 8am and 12pm. Please note you can and are advised to self-certificate for 7 days before requiring one from a GP.

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.
