COVID STATUS CHECKER
WHAT HAPPENS IF I NEED AN APPOINTMENT?
We are asking that patients attending the surgery for any appointment should arrive with a face mask or other appropriate covering of the nose and mouth.
At the moment due to the pandemic we are operating a little differently. We are not booking appointments at the door or over the telephone as usual. If you feel you need an appointment you should ring the surgery and one of our reception team will ask you some questions before putting you in for a telephone call with the clinician. The clinician will then call you back and triage your problem before asking you down to see them at the surgery.
We ask during this time that you come alone to the surgery as we can only have the patients being seen by the clinician in the surgery. Chaperones or family members will be asked to remain outside whilst you are in the surgery.
Essential blood tests, dressings and baby vaccinations will be continuing by appointment only.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I NEED A PRESCRIPTION?
Our prescription service is now paperless. If you do not have a designated pharmacy for your prescription to be sent electronically, please contact the surgery. Prescriptions cannot be collected from the surgery. We are encouraging patients to sign up to our online service. All we need is an email address, please ring the surgery for more help and advice.

Eastbourne Community Hub
East Sussex Community Hubs: Community Hubs are open across East Sussex to bring extra help for people who need support in coping with the effects of COVID-19. Volunteers and staff from local councils and the health service will try to get the right assistance to the people who need it most, including helping to arrange food deliveries, or mental health support. Hubs cannot provide medicines, although there is support to arrange a volunteer to pick up prescriptions.
