All the doctors have a commitment to a friendly, caring style of family medicine, regularly updating their knowledge and skills via reading, seminars and refresher courses. All the doctors are parents themselves and they have experienced many of the pleasures, as well as the stresses and anxieties of parenthood.

District nurses for our area are based in Chichester. They look after patients who need nursing care but who are unable to get to the surgery. Patients with more serious illness or long-term conditions who cannot get to the surgery may come under the care of the Community Matron. Please contact reception if you think you may need to access the District Nursing Service.
Our midwife is Gabriella Fisher who runs an ante-natal clinic in the practice on Fridays. Gabriella will look after patients who are pregnant, throughout the pregnancy.
