How to make an appointment

The practice appointments system has changed to clinician-led triage only as a result of the coronavirus (COVID19) outbreak forcing us to change our practice in order to protect vulnerable patients and to protect our staff.

This means you are no longer be able to book any face-to-face appointments online.

If you need to book a face-to-face appointment for a blood test, or for the health care assistants (HCAs) or Practice Nurses, please call reception on 01273 772020.

Telephone appointments are bookable online with our Doctors, Advanced Nurse Practitioners, Nurse Practitioners and Pharmacists on weekdays Monday-Friday from 6am online or by telephoning reception from 8am. Your appointment will be triaged and, if appropriate, a face-to-face appointment will be offered to you by your clinician. Please use and of the following links to book a telephone triage appointment - https://systmonline.tpp-uk.com/ or via the AirMid UK or NHS apps.

eConsult is a new service as an alternative way to contact the practice for non-urgent clinical advice, administration queries, referral issues, or prescription related matters but also has options for self-management guidance and signposting. Your eConsult message will be triaged to the appropriate team member and you will receive a response by the end of the next working day. Clinicians may be able to help you through email, online messaging, text message, telephone call, video consultation or may need to arrange a face-to-face appointment. Please use the following link https://brightonhealthandwellbeingcentre.webgp.com/ to send an eConsult message. For more information about eConsult see https://econsult.net

Robin Hood Health Foundation

robin hood health foundation logo

The Robin Hood Health Foundation was establsihed by Dr Laura Marshall-Andrews and Gary Toyne (managing partner) in 2016 in order to assist those patients of BHWC who want to access complementary therapies but couldn't afford to. Prior to the formation of the charity (1169072) Gary and Laura had been making donations into a fund from the practice profits in order to enable access to complementary therapies for those that couldn't afford them until the charity could be formally established.

The objectives of RHHF are:

The relief and prevention of sickness and the preservation of health for the public benefit by the provision of complementary, natural and alternative medicine, in particular but not exclusively through the provision of affordable complementary therapy treatments and therapeutic art projects.

To advance the education of the public in health and wellbeing and the therapeutic benefit of the arts by but not exclusively through the provision of lectures, exhibitions, arts programmes and workshops.

Since 2013 4000 patients have come through the charity funded arts and complementary therapy programme. The charity (including that donated to the fund prior to charity formation) has received £137,000 in funding since the inception of BHWC in 2013. BHWC has contributed £85,000 of this funding. The charity has also received funding from Arts Council England and the Big Lottery.

Testimonials

I feel so fortunate to have The Brighton Health and Wellbeing Centre on my doorstep. The Receptionists are always so pleasant and hardworking and the doctors are first class. Everything is discussed and explained in detail and, from my experience, the doctors are always very thorough. The surgery itself is bright and cheerful and it is so easy and convenient to book appointments and repeat prescriptions online. Also, there is so much going on in the way of community health matters, a really good facility right here in the neighbourhood.
