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.

Patient Participation Group Appeal
We would like to thank our Patient Participation Group (PPG) for organising our recent appeal for a new ECG machine. We have reached our appeal target and will be purchasing a new machine! This could not have been achieved without the kindness and generosity of our local businesses and our Community especially the anonymous individual that made a large donation.
The Patient Participation Group will be launching a new appeal soon!
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.
