About us

If you live in East Sussex or have a GP in the area, then NHS East Sussex Downs and Weald & NHS Hastings and Rother are responsible for commissioning (buying) the health services you need.

These include services provided by your GP, dentist, optician and pharmacist as well as other NHS services you may need, such as hospital treatment.

As a result of the changes to the NHS, which were announced by the Government in July 2010, primary care trusts (PCTs), including NHS East Sussex Downs & Weald and NHS Hastings and Rother, will cease to exist from April 2013 with groups or consortia of local GPs taking over commissioning services.

As part of the transition to this, the four Sussex PCTs are operating as NHS Sussex. 

For the latest on the introduction of the new NHS structure, please visit our dedicated page, or go to the Department of Health's website.
