ADDITIONAL GP SERVICES AT CATERHAM DENE


NHS services are there for you when you need them. But many people are using urgent care services with health concerns that could be treated by a GP or pharmacist. This makes these services very busy and means you and others may have to wait longer to be treated.


The NHS is doing everything it can to prepare for the extra pressures and demands over the busy winter months.


You can #HelpMyNHS to give the best care by making sure you and your loved ones get the right care, at the right time, in the right place. This website helps you do this by highlighting where you can get medical treatment that is right for you. It includes details on the alternative services to A&E and GPs, along with tips on using of GP appointments properly, taking steps to help prevent getting ill and self-manage minor illnesses, as well as other services, such as pharmacists.


It is tailored to include listings on specific services available to you across Sussex and East Surrey.

The Oxted & District LINK Association


chain link logo LINK is an independent local Charity, founded in 1974, providing a Community Service for all those in need anywhere in the RH8 area.


LINK arranges for volunteer transport for residents who, regardless of age, are otherwise unable to get to Hospitals, the Health Centre, Dentists, Day Centres, Opticians or to collect prescriptions etc.


LINK employs no paid staff and relies entirely on its 150+ volunteers for telephone duty and driving. Telephone and mileage costs are refunded.


LINK makes no charge for its services, relying on modest donations from those helped towards defraying costs. 


LINK has produced the Directory of Local Services and Businesses for many years, using voluntary resources, and any surplus funds generated from its production are ploughed back into providing the daily services. Copies of the Directory are delivered free of charge to over 6000 houses and businesses in the area. The next edition will be distributed early this summer.


LINK incorporates the LINK Porter Trust, formed from legacies and donations, to make grants to those in need - call 01883 723115 to obtain a claim form.
