Pharmacy Opening Times


Sussex residents are being reminded to stock up on their medicines before the Christmas and to use the right service for their medical needs, freeing up emergency care for those most in need.

Using the alternative services to hospitals and GPs when appropriate, will free up A&E Departments to provide vital care for life-threatening emergencies, meaning doctors can help those in most need swiftly.

Although local pharmacies may have restricted opening hours over Christmas and New Year, there will be some local pharmacies open each day should you need them.
