Extended Access

Patients can now be seen outside of normal surgery hours.  Early morning and early evening appointments as well as all day Saturday and Sunday morning are now available to be pre-booked.  The clinics will either be at Benfield Valley Health Hub, formerly County Clinic, or Mile Oak Surgery.  You can book by asking our receptionists when you call for an appointment.  You can only book these appointments through us.

When We Are closed

Out of hours please call 111.

The doctor may be able to offer you advice over the telephone. If the doctor feels that you need to be examined, you will normally be asked to attend the Primary Care Centre. This is generally based at one of the hospital premises.

Patients whose condition is so serious that they are completely unable to travel will receive a home visit, or the doctor may arrange for an ambulance to attend.

If your problem is urgent and you need a GP there are two walk-in GP clinics available in the city. They are:

Walk-in Centre next to Brighton train station

Aspect House, 84-87 Queens Road, Brighton, BN1 3XE

Open every day (including Christmas Day) from 08:00 to 20:00

If you are unsure where to go or need help or advice call NHS 111 for free advice.

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.  

NHS 111
