This practice serves the central and eastern part of Brighton. In addition we look after students from the University of Brighton Falmer campus.
Our team includes two GPs, two nurses as well as our practice manager and reception staff. As we are not a large practice when doctors are away for any reason we have to employ locum doctors. All doctors working at this practice are required to meet minimum standards as laid down by the General Medical Council.
We offer a full range of general practice services as well as chronic disease management, contraceptive services etc.
At this practice we aim to treat all our patients promptly, courteously and in complete confidence.
The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them. You can download the guide below.

If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice.
You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.
To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
