First Community Health and Care

Providing community healthcare services in East Surrey and the surrounding area

First Community Health and Care delivers front-line NHS services, providing first-rate care, through our first-rate people, offering first-rate value to our local community.

First Community is part of the NHS family and provides community healthcare services in east Surrey and the surrounding area. We offer a friendly face with highly-rated, well run services, delivered by our skilled people. We provide high-quality nursing and therapy teams, specialist care teams, children and family advice and support as well as a Rehabilitation Ward, Rapid Assessment Clinic and Minor Injury Unit at Caterham Dene Hospital.

We are a community interest company.  Any surplus we make is reinvested into community services. We play a vital role in our local health community, which we believe is essential to ensure local people have good, prompt access and first-rate care.

There is a Minor Injury Unit X-ray facility at Caterham Dene Hospital open Monday to Friday 09.00-17.00 and from 10.00am - 17.00pm Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holidays.

The Minor Injury Unit is currently unable to treat children under the age of 18. If you think your condition is serious or life-threatening, you should dial 999 or go to your nearest A&E.
