When We Are Closed
Between 18:30 and 08:00 hrs and at weekends and bank-holidays, if you need help, phone 01580 880790 and you will be redirected to the out-of-hours service.
A nurse may speak to you to see if they can sort out your problem. If this is not possible they will pass your call to a GP who will contact you. The Doctor may decide you need to be seen at an emergency surgery, need a visit or an ambulance, or can wait to see your GP at Oldwood Surgery or Battle Health Centre the next working day.
Hastings Walk-in Centre
Patients can also attend the centre based at Station Plaza Centre, Station Approach, Hastings TN34 1BA. Open 08:00 - 20:00 hrs every day.
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.
