Welcome to Saltdean & Rottingdean Medical Practice
With patients' needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations.
Rottingdean Surgery is now closed all contact must be through our main Surgery at Saltdean
From 30th October 2017 we are introducing a new telephone service, in order to increase appointment capacity and improve access. When you call the surgery, your details will be taken and 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 you own/usual GP.
For more information, please see our website www.practicex.co.uk or ask at reception for a leaflet.
Also from 1st May all our patients will have access to a new pre-booked NHS Service for GP and Nurses appointments outside of normal working hours. See our appointments section for further details.
We hope you enjoy having a look around the site and familiarising yourself with some of the online features such as ordering a repeat prescription. Whatever your thoughts, be sure to let us know via our feedback function. Comments and suggestions are always a great way of helping us continue to enhance the way we look after you.
All our staff are bound by the same rules of confidentiality as the Doctors and Nurses. We can only give any medical information including test results to the patient themselves unless we have in writing permission to do otherwise.
In line with Department of Health guidelines, the Caldicott report and Data Protection Act we wish to advise you how we handle information held on patients. Everyone in the NHS has a legal duty to keep information about you confidential. You have a right to access your health records.
Out Of Hours
You can call 111 when you need medical help fast but it is not a 999 emergency. 111 is available 365 days a year, 24 hours a day. Calls are free from landlines and mobiles.
Outside surgery hours there is always a doctor on call for emergencies. Out of hours cover is provided by IC 24 in the evenings, weekends and bank holidays. Please listen to the message on our answerphone for the relevant details.
