CONSULTATIONS are now available at Littlehampton Medical Centre via phone or in house face to face.

Phone consultations can be booked on line through HotDoc while face to face appointments need to be booked through reception by ringing 83982600

Telephone consultations are currently bulkbilled. Most of our GP’s continue to bulkbill children under 16 and concession card holders monday to friday during office hours.

For your safety and in continuing to provide a high standard of Infection control we are continuing to triage patients before they enter the clinic. Any patients with a fever, cold/flu like symptoms and loss of taste or smell will be directed to attend our respiratory clinic and the doctor on duty. The doctor will be able to attend swabbing you for COVID-19 as required.

Your health and well being is our priority. We are attending to all procedures and routine preventative health care.

This includes skin checks, routine pap smears, Health Assessments, chronic disease care plans, iron infusions, venesections and routine physical examinations. As mentioned above you will be triaged for these appointments to ensure it is safe for you and our staff to see you in person.

We do request that a support person only attends your appt if it is necessary. One parent only is to attend childrens appointments and partners are not able to attend antenatal visits.

Could you please arrive 5 minutes early for your appointment to allow our staff to complete the triage process before you are due to see your doctor.

On arrival at the clinic please remain in your car, ring reception to inform them that you have arrived, they will attend the triage process with you and advise if you are able to come inside or need to continue to wait in your car for your doctor to ring you first.

While this precaution can be an inconvenience for some, it further adds to your safety.

Testing for COVID-19 is highly recommended for anyone with symptoms which may indicate the presence of COVID-19. If you need advice, please speak with our reception staff or visit our website to book a consultation with a doctor via telephone.
