Out of Hours Primary Care Services in Sussex and East Surrey CCG

A new contract has been awarded to provide GP services out-of-hours across Sussex and East Surrey.

IC24, which currently provides GP out-of-hours services in Brighton and East Sussex, has been awarded the contract that now covers the whole of Sussex and East Surrey .

Organisations were invited to bid to provide the service for one or any combination of the areas covered by Coastal West Sussex, Crawley, Horsham and Mid Sussex, High Weald Lewes Havens, Hastings and Rother, Eastbourne, Halisham and Seaford, Brighton and Hove and East Surrey CCGs.

IC24 was chosen as the preferred bidder for all of the clinical commissioning groups across Sussex and East Surrey.

The service, which will begin in April 2014, will provide the public with access to medical help and support when their usual GP surgery is closed.

In the same way as now, the GP out-of-hours service will receive referrals from NHS 111 if patients require support over the phone, a face-to-face consultation at a primary care base location, or a visit in their home when clinically appropriate.

To access the service dial NHS 111.
