Easter Holiday/Bank Holiday 2022

Help us help you over the Easter Bank Holiday weekend

NHS services are currently extremely busy, as we continue to see a rise in demand across all health services.

There are also rising numbers of healthcare staff who are off work with COVID-19.

Together this means health services are working extremely hard to continue to provide the best possible care for those who need NHS help.

Over the Bank Holiday weekend, the NHS is asking the public to help us help you if you need help and support.

Please

  • Use the right services for your needs at the right time – pharmacies and NHS 111 are the best place to start, providing expert help and advice;
  • You can contact NHS 111 24 hours a day by dialling 111 or going online to 111.nhs.uk 24 hours a day. They can advise, support and direct you to the most appropriate service;
  • Please only go to A&E or Emergency Departments if it is a life-saving emergency;
  • Be patient and kind to our staff – they are trying to keep people safe.

If you do need help there are alternatives to coming to A&E. Our walk in and minor injury services are available to help you with:

  • Brighton Station Medical Practice Walk in service open 8am-8pm every day

If you need mental health support over the Bank Holiday, the Sussex Mental Healthline offers crisis care for people in urgent need of help with their mental health. It is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week on 0800 0309 500.

My Planned Care Patient Digital Platform

Anyone waiting for a hospital appointment, operation or treatment, can now access the NHS “My Planned Care Patient Digital Platform” https://www.myplannedcare.nhs.uk/seast/ which gives you direct access to the latest average wait time information for your local trust, as well as helpful advice and support whilst you wait.

Updated weekly, the site is easy-to-use and is ‘open-access’ so you, your carer, friends, relatives, and your NHS team can also access this information.

We encourage people to look at this site where they may find the information they need before contacting their GP or hospital for an update about any elective procedures they are waiting for.

As well as wait time information, the platform also includes helpful details about how to manage pain, mental health, keeping healthy and accessing financial help and other local support whilst they wait. It can also help people to prepare for their appointment/operation, including how to make a plan for their care and treatment alongside their healthcare professional.

Visiting the GP Surgery

There is still a requirement from NHS England that all GP surgeries continue to practice infection control measures during the COVID pandemic. Therefore we ask our patients visiting their GP surgery to wear a face mask, and do not enter the building if you have any symptoms of COVID or flu.
