Here at the Saltdean and Rottingdean Medical Practice we offer a range appointments and services.

In order for you to be directed to the most suitable appointment for you, our receptionists will ask you a series of questions. This is to ascertain the correct appointment for you. You will then be booked in for a telephone or a face to face appointment with either a Doctor, Advanced Nurse practitioner, Paramedic, Nurse, Health Care Assistant, Phlebotomist or Pharmacist depending on your medical need. 

Our telephone lines are open from 8am until 1pm and reopen from 2pm until 6:30pm.

At 8am our phone lines are open to book urgent appointments. This does not include medical emergencies, and you should attend A&E immediately. 

After 10am our phone lines are open to book routine appointments. These appointments are booked up to two weeks in advance for a doctor, and several weeks in advance for other clinicians. 

As you can imagine our telephone lines are currently extremely busy. We advise patients that there is self help advice on our website and the NHS website. Pharmacists can also be very knowledgeable and helpful. 

Doctor Appointments

Appointments with a doctor can be made up to two weeks in advance. The Surgery can be very busy so we ask where possible that you make appointments via the telephone. You can speak to any of our doctors at the surgery for a routine telephone consultation appointment. Appointments for nurses, health care assistant and blood tests appointments can be made several weeks in advance. 

Nurse, Health Care Assistant and Blood Test Appointments

We have practice nurses at the surgery every day. Our Health Care Assistant has clinics four days a week and the Phlebotomist’s (who take blood) have clinics 4 mornings a week. You can book appointments for our Nurses, Health Care Assistant, Phlebotomist, and Pharmacist in advance. Please note that this is only a guide and subject to change due to staff leave or illness.


If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else.

SMS Service

We can now text you your appointment details. Please let the receptionist know your mobile phone number. You can also receive an appointment reminder the day before your appointment. If you do not wish to receive this service, please let the receptionist know.
