Our Clinics and Services
Chronic Illness Management
The practice runs a range of services for patients with conditions such as asthma, diabetes and ischaemic heart disease.
Patients are encouraged to be actively involved in their own care and the practice offers advice and monitoring together with access to specialist services where appropriate. These conditions warrant an annual review with the nurses.
Arrangements can be made with the local authority for the safe disposal of needles and other sharps for diabetic patients.

First Contact Practitioners
The Role of First Contact Practitioners (FCPs) in primary care is to assess patients with soft tissue, muscle and joint pain and to decide on the most appropriate management pathway
FCPs are physiotherapists with expertise in the assessment and management of Musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions. They may also be known as Advanced Practice physiotherapist (APP) or MSK practitioners

The Microsuction Clinic is a locally commissioned service for patients in Brighton and Hove.
Microsuction involves a microscope and small suction machine to remove debris from the ear canal. This debris can block the ear, making it difficult to hear, or may become infected. In some patients washing out the ears (syringing), is not appropriate and therefore microsuction is an alternative treatment.
The procedure is noisy and can occasionally cause some mild discomfort, but is a safe procedure which helps to remove wax blockages and can treat infections. More severe or recurrent ear infections will often benefit from microsuction to remove the infected debris.
Our clinics our run by Dr Tom Whitfield, Dr Sarah McGuire and Ms Melanie Oakley.
This clinic requires a referral from your GP Surgery and can be completed by a doctor or a nurse. Once we have received your referral we will contact you to arrange an appointment.
To book a follow up appointment or for any queries please contact us on 01273 557411.
You can then book in for your first appointment through by phone on 01273 664794
