Welcome to The Phoenix Medical Centre
The Phoenix Medical Centre moved to purpose built premises on the seafront at Goring-By-Sea in October 2011.
The Phoenix Medical Centre has one partner, Dr Fatema Chowdhury.
We are very sad to announce that Dr Haynes left the practice on 12 December 2019 and will be moving abroad with her family. We will all miss Dr Haynes and would like to send her and her family our best wishes with their new lives.
Dr Hannah Hewlett, Dr Ajaz Sheikh and Dr Bernard Hardwick are providing long term locum cover to ensure continuity of care for our patients.
At The Phoenix Medical Centre in West Sussex the doctors and nurses take pride in offering the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare. We run many clinics for chronic disease care and offer a wide variety of other medical services such as antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups. See "Clinics and Services" on the toolbar.
INFORMATION ON CORONAVIRUS
DO NOT COME TO THE SURGERY IF YOU THINK YOU HAVE SYMPTOMS OR YOU HAVE RETURNED FROM WUHAN OR CHINA IN THE PAST 2 WEEKS
Please see information on the Public Health website -
What is coronavirus?
A coronavirus is a type of virus. As a group, coronaviruses are common across the world. Typical symptoms of coronavirus include fever and a cough that may progress to a severe pneumonia causing shortness of breath and breathing difficulties.
Generally, coronavirus can cause more severe symptoms in people with weakened immune systems, older people, and those with long-term conditions like diabetes, cancer and chronic lung disease.
Wuhan novel coronavirus is a new strain of coronavirus first identified in Wuhan City, China.
If you have returned from Wuhan in the last 14 days:
- stay indoors and avoid contact with other people as you would with other flu viruses
- call NHS 111 to inform them of your recent travel to the city
Please follow this advice even if you do not have symptoms of the virus.
We are asking people to take simple, common-sense steps to avoid close contact with other people as much as possible, like they would with other flu viruses.
This means remaining at home for 14 days after arriving from Wuhan and not going to work, school or public areas.
Where possible, you should avoid having visitors to your home, but it’s ok for friends, family or delivery drivers to drop off food.
If you develop symptoms
If you develop a fever, cough, runny nose, sore throat or difficulty breathing, you should continue to follow the advice above. Please do not leave your home until you been given advice by a clinician. Please call the surgery on 01403 728931 or call 111 for more advice. DO NOT COME TO THE SURGERY IF YOU THINK YOU HAVE SYMPTOMS OR YOU HAVE RETURNED FROM WUHAN OR CHINA IN THE PAST 2 WEEKS
HOW ARE WE DOING?
Please tell us how how we are doing. Click HERE to undertake a short survey. We are always happy to receive comments and suggestions - there is a leaflet available in reception.
In order to improve the service we provide for you - our patients - we, together with our colleagues at other practices, sometime close for an afternoon.
There is still an urgent service available should you need to access healthcare during the afternoon and if you do need NHS help during this time we will give you a number to call.
We take extra steps to make sure we can see as many patients as possible during the morning of training days and open again first thing the next day.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused but hope that you can understand this activity, which will ensure we are able to provide you with the most up-to-date and best possible health services.
