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.
Hot Weather Alert
23.07.19 - Hot weather could increase the health risks to vulnerable patients. To find out more about how to cope in hot weather please go here for the latest advice from Public Health England. Useful advice from the NHS can be found here More details about the weather alert is available on the MET Office website here
We have now introduced a 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.

APPOINTMENTS OUTSIDE NORMAL WORKING HOURS
All our patients will now have access to a new pre-booked NHS Service for GP and Nurse 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.
