Welcome to Woodingdean Medical Centre
We are a GP doctor's surgery serving the residents of Woodingdean, Ovingdean and from roads in Rottingdean north of Meadow Parade.
We offer all core General Medical Services funded by the NHS as well as a number of private services and clinics. As well as our three principal General Practitioners we have a number of other healthcare staff located at or attached to the surgery including practice nurses, health visitors, physiotherapists, midwives, audiologists, podiatrists and dermatologists.
At Woodingdean Medical Centre we are very proud of the service we provide to our registered patients. We aim to practice modern, high quality and innovative care for all of our patients and firmly believe that all patients have a right to equal access to medical care.
As from 20th August we are increasing our opening hours as will not be closing during the middle of the day. Our Reception will be open Monday to Friday between 8.30am to 6.00pm and you can telephone us between these times too.
Christmas Hamper Draw 2018
We would like to thank our Patient Participation Group (PPG) for organising our recent Christmas Hamper Draw 2018. The Patient Participation Group have raised £600 towards the purchase of a new ECG machine for the patients of Woodingdean Medical Centre.
This could not have been achieved without the kindness and generosity of our local businesses and our Community. Their contributions helped us to collect enough products to put together eleven beautiful Christmas Hampers! The draw took place on the 18th December at the Woodingdean Medical Centre and 11 lucky winners have been notified. On behalf of Woodingdean Patient Participation Group, we would like to thank everyone for taking part in the draw and to wish you all a very
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
NB If you would like to be part of our enthusiastic PPG and help support and influence the effectiveness and quality of our Practice, do please see details on how to join our PPG on the 'Patient Group' tab on our website.
From 13th November 2017 we are introducing a new telephone service in order to increase appointment capacity. When you call the surgery, your details will be taken & a GP will call you back the same day at a scheduled time. Your call may be taken by a GP not based at the practice but who has full access to your records. This service is the same as we offer with your usual GP.
HERE extended hours appointments
We are introducing a new pre-bookable NHS service for GP and nurse appointments outside of normal working hours. See our appointments section for further details.
Prescription Ordering Direct
Our patients can now utilise the Prescription Ordering Direct (POD) service, which is a new and easy way for patients to order their prescriptions. See our Prescriptions page for more details.
