Welcome to Woodingdean Medical Centre. Woodingdean is an eastern suburb of the city of Brighton and Hove in East Sussex, separated from the main part of the city by downland and the Brighton Racecourse. With a local population in excess of 10,000 and a list size of approx 8,500 we provide medical care to the vast majority of the local people. We are a forward thinking, innovative team with commitment to retaining the traditional strengths that General Practice offers.
Woodingdean Medical Centre moved into new purpose built facilities (shared with Woodingdean Library) in Warren Road in 2014.
This website has been developed to enable you to receive the best possible care from Woodingdean Medical Centre. We have a team of dedicated doctors and other health professionals available for your care. If you do have any problems or ideas for improvement, please do not hesitate to contact our Practice Manager.
Woodingdean Medical Centre sets measurable standards that take into account our responsibility for delivering national and local priorities in health care. These standards are reviewed regularly and we monitor our performance against the standards set, by clinical audits.
