Welcome to the website of Mile Oak Medical Centre
We are a GP Doctor's Surgery providing both NHS and private services and
clinics to the residents of Mile Oak, Portslade, Hangleton, Fishersgate and
parts of Shoreham-by-Sea in Sussex. Unlike most GP Practices we have a range of
other specialist clinicians and clinics working together in our purpose-built
building- we have health visitors, physiotherapists, midwives, audiologists,
podiatrists, dermatologists, and various other clinics. This benefits our
patients and improves communication between the various clinicians.
At Mile Oak Medical Centre, we are very proud of the service we provide to
our registered patients. We aim to practice modern, high quality and innovative
care in the friendly family-based tradition of Mile Oak. We strongly believe
that all patients have a right to equal access to medical care.
We are currently accepting new patients - so if you are searching for a
Doctor's Surgery to register with and live within our practice boundary then you are free to register
with the practice. You can pop in to the surgery to get the registration
documents or download the registration forms
from this site.
We trust that this website will help you make the best use of all the
services that we offer. Read more about Mile

Which of our new GPs will you be registered with?
If you previously had Dr. Edwards as your usual GP then you will now be
assigned to one of our 2 new GPs by the first letter of your surname:
Dr. Chloe Webber: letters A to F plus J
Dr. Rebecca Tillott: letters G to I and K to Z
Patient Representative Group (PRG)
We are in the process of forming a "virtual" PRG. We would like to email
members of the PRG occasionally to hear their views about the important issues
that patients care about at the Practice. The PRG responses will then help us
to survey the wider patient population, and then help us to develop action
plans to improve the range and quality of services that we offer. We will
only contact you 3-4 times a year, and there will be no obligation for you to
respond or remain part of the PRG. Generally we will use short questionnaires
asking general questions about the practice. If you would like to be involved
in the PRG then please contact us, providing your email address. Your contact details
will be used for no other purpose. We look forward to hearing from you!
You have probably heard about this plan to extract anonymised data from GP
records to a secure database . The upload was supposed to be in April but this
has been delayed due to concerns about the public being insufficiently
informed. It will be going ahead but we are not sure when at this stage.
For decades your confidential medical notes have been guarded by your GP
Practice, and your notes are transfered from one Practice to another when you
move. The NHS wants to use the anonymised data (no name/address) to
improve the services offered so we can provide the best possible care for
