Welcome to the Sackville Medical Centre website

This website is designed to help you to quickly and efficiently access the care or advice you need.

We offer a full range of clinics and services, many of which do not require a prior appointment with a doctor. Click here for a full list.

We actively encourage Feedback on our services, and we welcome patient comments and suggestions. Please let us know about your experiences, both good and not so good. Feedback Forms are available in waiting rooms and at the reception desk, or simply talk to a member of staff. Alternatively, you can visit “iWantGreatCare” to review the service that you received. Please tell us who you dealt with – all our staff wear name badges. If you would be interested in joining our Patient Participation Group, or in the report on its recent activity, please click here.

At Sackville Medical Centre we have always been involved in training our future doctors and especially GPs. We believe this brings to the Practice a healthy learning environment, in which our trainees but also all the GPs ensure they are up to date, well informed & able to give the best medical care to our patients.

Latest News

NEW PREMISES

New Premises and Practice update for Patients

We are pleased to confirm that building work remains on track for the new premises (the redevelopment of the Holy Trinity Church, Blatchington Road, Hove) into which we will be moving with Central Hove Surgery at, or close to, the end of March 2017.

In the course of our planning for this huge and exciting change it has become very apparent that it makes sense for the Practices to merge, and become one Practice instead of two.

We believe that a merger is in the best interests of all concerned in the Practice, including patients, staff and the Partners – and that it will provide greater opportunities for the future.

Access to the Sackville doctors with whom you are familiar will not be affected by the change.

We hope that you will be as pleased as we are about this news. We have already started to work closely with the staff and Partners of Central Hove Surgery, and look forward to formalising our union in the new building which will be called Trinity Medical Centre.

We will write to all patients formally closer to the project completion with more details.

 

Online Access to Patient Records

We now offer our patients the facility to view parts of their medical records online.

Access to this information is via the online pathway that some of our patients already use to book appointments and order repeat medication.

If you are not yet registered to use our online services, please request an application form at the reception desk when you next visit the Practice.

The Practice will be closed on the afternoon of Thursday 24th November, 2016 from 1.00 p.m. for staff training. We will re-open at 8.30 a.m. the following day.

Care Quality Commission

Since 1st April, 2013, our Practice has been registered with CQC, which inspects GP Practices to check that they are meeting the national standards of quality and safety.
