The Bexhill Primary Care Network team (PCN) are here to help and support you alongside your GP surgery and local services to give practical support and information. Whether that will be to help you through a diagnosis, provide support around a long term medical or mental health condition, support for those caring for others, or help you achieve a healthy body and mind. Whatever you need, we can support or signpost to groups that can help you through every step of the way.

We invite you to come along to meet with your PCN team and other local Community Groups to find out what care and support is available to you in your Bexhill area. Our Physiotherapists, Podiatrists and Dietitians will also be available for a chat.
