We are improving access to appointments

From 01 October, GP and nurse appointments are now available during the evening and at the weekend for people across Coastal West Sussex.

This means that urgent appointments are available up to 8pm during the week, and during clinics on a Saturday and Sunday.

This aims to improve access to GP appointments and help local people to get the help and support they need.

The service is run by Innovations in Primary Care (IPC), a not-for-profit company owned by local GP practices.

The appointments will be available at local GP access hubs, run from GP surgeries, and they will be both routine and urgent appointments with a doctor, nurse or healthcare professional.

The teams will see new illnesses when you urgently need to see a health professional, and offer planned appointments such as family planning and smear tests that can be hard to arrange whilst at work or when you are caring for family or a loved one.

IPC has been running the MIAMI clinics in Adur and Worthing for the last three years, which has offered a very similar service, offering help for ‘Minor Injury Assessment & Minor Illnesses’.

These clinics have been successful and helped local people to access the help they need outside of normal opening times.

We hope that this roll out of the hubs across the whole of Coastal West Sussex will mean that all patients registered with a GP practice in our area can benefit.

You book into the GP access hubs via your normal GP practice, and you may be offered an appointment at one of the hubs at the weekend if you call NHS 111 for urgent health advice and support.

The hubs may be at your practice or they may be at a neighbouring GP practice locally in the community around you.

The teams will have access to your medical records with your consent, and any care they provide will be added to your notes so your GP practice can continue any ongoing care.

Patients can book into these appointments by calling your registered GP practice in the normal way, and they will be able to access the booking system and make sure you receive the help and support you need.

Pharmacy2u is NOT your local pharmacy and has nothing to do with us

You may have received a letter in the post or email inviting you to get your repeat prescription from a company called pharmacy2u.

Here are some important facts about Pharmacy2u which we feel you should know:

  • Pharmacy2u is not your local community pharmacy and has nothing to do with us.
  • Pharmacy2u is a distance-selling (internet only) pharmacy based on an industrial estate.
  • As a patient, you cannot have any face-to-ace contact.
  • In October 2015, they were fined £130,000 for selling their patients’ details to marketing companies.
  • Over Christmas 2015, they failed to send out prescriptions for three weeks, leaving patients without essential medicines.
  • In February 2017, the CQC inspect pharmacy2u, finding it was ‘’not safe, effective or well led’’
  • We believe that an internet business like this is no substitute for your local pharmacy.
  • Please support your local pharmacy.
