PACE SETTER AWARD for MENTAL HEALTH 2018
The Medical Centre has been awarded the 'Pacesetter Award for Mental Health 2018' by MIND, NHS Health Education England and Coastal West Sussex Clinical Commissioning Group.
This is in recognition of the work done by the whole surgery team in 2018 relating to Mental Health. The project focused on raising awareness in the local community and improving signposting for patients to local Mental Health agencies. Work was also done within the practice with staff relating to their mental health and wellbeing.

Pharmacy2u is NOT your local pharmacy and has nothing to do with us
You may have received a letter in the post or email inviting you to get your repeat prescription from a company called Pharmacy2u.
Here are some important facts about Pharmacy2u which we feel you should know:
- Pharmacy2u is not your local community pharmacy and has nothing to do with us.
- Pharmacy2u is a distance-selling (internet only) pharmacy based on an industrial estate.
- As a patient, you cannot have any face-to-ace contact.
- In October 2015, they were fined £130,000 for selling their patients’ details to marketing companies.
- Over Christmas 2015, they failed to send out prescriptions for three weeks, leaving patients without essential medicines.
- In February 2017, the CQC inspect Pharmacy2u, finding it was ‘’not safe, effective or well led’’
- We believe that an internet business like this is no substitute for your local pharmacy.
- Please support your local pharmacy.
