Please be advised that, because we have reached in excess of 11,300 patients registered at Bridge Medical Centre, our patient registrations are now capped with effect from Friday 2nd April 2021. This means that we are unable to take on any new patients. This decision has been taken in order for the practice to continue safely providing NHS services to our currently registered patients.

Information on where to register at other surgeries in the area can be found on the NHS Choices website

You can access further information and download the allocation form from the West Sussex ICS website

For assistance with finding a GP Surgery in Sussex to register with, please contact the NHS Sussex Allocations Teams on 07425 616194.

Everyone is welcome in general practice. You do not need to provide proof of ID, address, immigration status or an NHS number in order to receive care or see a GP, but it might help. Once the registration has been processed you will receive a letter of confirmation.  We will also be offering a New Patient Screening once we have resumed normal services.

Practice Area

Temporary Registrations

If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.

You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.

To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.

Named GP

All patients at Bridge Medical Centre have a named, accountable doctor who is responsible for coordinating their care.

Your named doctor will be allocated to you by the Practice. You can still talk to or make appointmnets to see any of our doctors or nurses, not just your named GP.
