One company awarded Sussex out-of-hours GP contract

Just one company will be providing out-of-hours GP services across Sussex from this April.

The county's clinical commissioning groups have awarded a three-year-contract to IC24.

The company, previously known as South East Health, has already been running the service in Brighton and Hove and across East Sussex.

Healthcare company Harmoni (crct) ran a similar service for West Sussex.

However health bosses felt it was better to have one organisation covering the whole county.

Companies were invited to bid for the contract, worth £10 million a year, and IC24 emerged as the preferred bidder.

The company, based in Kent, will also be managing out-of-hours services in east Surrey as part of the contract.

Patients can access GPs out-of-hours via NHS 111.
