When the surgery is closed - 'WE COULD BE HEROES'
St Peter's Medical Centre is closed on a Saturday and Sunday (unless you have a pre-booked appointment).
IF YOUR SYMPTOMS ARE LIFE THREATENING GO STRAIGHT TO THE A&E DEPARTMENT AT THE ROYAL SUSSEX COUNTY HOSPITAL OR DIAL '999'.
Central chest pain and / or shortness of breath are an emergency.
If your problem is urgent and you need to see a GP there is a Walk-in-Clinic available in the City next to Brighton train station:
Aspect House, 84-87 Queens Road, BN1 3XE
Telephone 03333 210946
Open every day from 08.00 - 20.00 hours.
When you don't need to go to a hospital A&E department but you do need medical attention or advice, there are lots of health services that can help in the city.
To find out where to go and who to call for health advice and treatment in Brighton and Hove - any day of the week - 24 hours a day - go to www.wecouldbeheroes.nhs.uk and use the 'I'm looking for...' search.
Alternatively, for an urgent medical problem that cannot wait - NHS111 is free to call and is available 24 hours a day - 365 days a year.
