Getting the Right Help and Advice
Online Consultation Tool
You can contact us about a medical or administrative issue by clicking HERE.
We have replaced the ‘e-Consult’ online consultation system with what we think is an easier system for you to use. The new system uses simple online forms and is a quick and easy way for you to contact us.
Using a smart phone, tablet, or computer, you will need to complete a short form and enter a few personal details, but you won’t have to answer lots of questions.
Your request will be reviewed within 2 working days.
You can use the online consultation system weekdays from 06:00 - 15:00.
(If there is a very high demand, we may adjust these timings).
Please note that online consultations should not be made for minor injuries; for these, you should contact Minor Injuries Unit (MIU) at Bognor War Memorial Hospital.
Try Self Care First
Many minor illnesses like coughs, colds, back ache, hay fever and minor injuries either get better without any intervention or can be self managed using over the counter remedies

Waiting for Hospital Appointments
Unfortunately, following the pandemic, hospital waiting times for procedures and appointments have increased. If you are waiting for a procedure or appointment at the hospital please do not contact the surgery about this, as we do not have access to the hospital appointment or waiting list system.
If your condition has worsened please contact the outpatient department to enquire when your appointment will be. The details of the outpatient department should be on any correspondence that you have received from the hospital.
If you feel that your symptoms are more severe and that the appointment time is too long, then please contact the specialist’s secretary to and ask the specialist secretary to request that the specialist review your referral in light of your new symptoms. The number and email for the specialist secretary should be on the correspondence which you have received from them.
If you are unable to contact outpatients or the specialist secretary then please contact the Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS)
Monday to Friday10:00 am to 3:00 pm.
If you are concerned that your new symptoms may not be related to your original condition then you should let us know, and we can assess, advise, and manage your new condition.
