Non-urgent advice: Out of Hours

The surgery provides 24-hour emergency cover for patients registered within the practice area.  If you require urgent advice or treatment when we are closed please telephone 111 or use 111 ONLINE

If you call the surgery when we are closed your call will automatically be diverted to 111.

111 may offer advice or pass your call to IC24 who provide the out of hours GP cover locally. 

Crawley Urgent Care Centre is an alternative to A+E. Crawley UCC can treat most injuries or illnesses that are not life-threatening, including chest infections, minor head and eye injuries, broken bones, sprains and strains, minor burns and scalds, bites and stings.

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.

Appointments are made at the hub which is currently hosted by Hurstpierpoint surgery

Please contact the surgery by phone and if you fit the criteria for an appointment you may be offered an appointment at the local hub.

The extra appointments are aimed at people who are generally well, who have access to transport and do not need a continuing conversation about their health, and so can see someone who is not their usual GP.

What does extended access mean?

Extended access means being able to access a GP appointment (and/or another member of the team such as a practice nurse) on a weekday evening after 6.30pm and at the weekend according to locally determined need. There is likely to be a mixture of routine and same day/urgent appointments available. Extended access appointments are likely to be provided in a ‘hub’ in your local area.

Will I be able to request to see my own GP if I book one of these appointments?

No, it will not be possible to guarantee that you will get to see your own GP if you use one of these appointments. This is because extended access services maybe delivered through a group of providers.

What does a hub mean?

A building where extended hours access will be delivered from, this could be a GP practice, health centre or a hospital.

How will I book an extended access appointment?

In the first instance this will be by calling your GP practice as you would do now. As the service develops we would hope to widen this to on line booking systems and other points of entry.

Will I be able to turn up at the hub and get an appointment then and there?

No, extended access appointments will be pre-bookable only.

If I book and extended hours appointment – will the person seeing me be able to access my medical records?

Yes with your permission, you will be asked for your consent for the person seeing you to access your records when you book one of these appointments.
