We offer evening appointments, booked in advance, on Tuesday (GP), Wednesday (GP & Nurse) and Thursday (GP) evenings 6.30pm to 8.00pm as part of the government initiative to give patients extended access to appointments. You can also book to see a GP at another local practice on Monday and Friday evenings and Saturday mornings; and by telephone on Sunday mornings. Speak to our reception team to find out more.
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.
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.
