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 to Australia 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. 


The surgery will only be closed on Public Holidays over the holiday period, that is Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Years Day.  Normal opening hours apply for all other days.

Surgery training

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.

We will be closed on the afternoon of 17 December for training.
