Improving Access to Primary Care Services

The Improving Access Service (IAS) is dedicated to improving access to primary healthcare services in Brighton & Hove.

We offer routine, pre-bookable appointments with a GP or nurse which help you to be seen sooner – often on the same day. The appointment may be at your own GP Surgery or another Surgery nearby.

You can book an appointment via your own GP Surgery during daytime working hours.

Monday to Friday – 18:30 and 20:30
Saturdays – 08:00 and 14:00
Sundays – 10:00 and 13:00
