What we do

The Extended Hours Service offers routine, pre-bookable appointments on weekday evenings and weekends with a GP or nurse in Brighton and Hove.

Why we do it

So that patients who have difficulty accessing appointments in ‘core’ hours can be seen by a doctor or nurse sooner – often on the same day.

Who we do it for

This service is available for people who use primary healthcare services in Brighton and Hove and are registered to one of our 12 participating surgeries. We provide project support to clinical and administrative staff who work locally to run the service.
