You may have recently been offered an appointment at a Medical Practice to see a GP or other healthcare professional in the evenings or weekends. This is part of a new service offered by South Downs Health and Care (SDHC).
SDHC is an organisation set up by the GP practices of Eastbourne, Hailsham and Seaford (https://southdownshealthandcare.co.uk/p/member-practices/). It aims to improve the accessibility and sustainability of care you receive by providing a larger scale for operations that can span all practices. Evening and weekend appointments are now available to book via Hailsham Medical Group.
In order to utilise one of these appointments, you will be required to give consent for access to your notes to both read and add to them. This will ensure continuity and safety despite the likelihood that you will be seen in a different practice by a clinician who is new to you.
Because the service has just begun, please bear with us whilst the availability of appointments is increased over the coming months.
