bloodpressure2Welcome to The Phoenix Medical Centre

The Phoenix Medical Centre moved to purpose built premises on the seafront at Goring-By-Sea in October 2011. 

There are 2 partners at the Phoenix Medical Centre, Dr Fatema Chowdhury and Dr Juliana Haynes.

At The Phoenix Medical Centre in West Sussex the doctors and nurses take pride in offering the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare.  We run many clinics for chronic disease care and offer a wide variety of other medical services such as antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups.  See "Clinics and Services" on the toolbar.


We are sorry to say that after over 30 years in the NHS, Dr Funnell retired in the middle of November 2016.  Dr Funnell qualified from the University of London in 1982.  He was a founding partner of Phoenix Surgery with Dr Woodward-Court in Beach House and then was heavily involved with the development of the new premises at The Waterfront in 2011. 

Dr Funnell is greatly missed by his colleagues and patients alike, and has received much appreciation over the years for his knowledge, kindness and compassion, and genuine interest in his patients.  Dr Funnell has been nominated again by a patient for an Evening Argus Community Star Award.

We would like to wish Dr Funnell a long and happy retirement.


We are very pleased to announce that Dr Adam Taylor joined Phoenix Medical Centre in December.  Some patients may remember Dr Taylor when he used to do locums at the practice. 



Please tell us how how we are doing.  Click HERE to undertake a short survey.  We are always happy to receive comments and suggestions - there is a leaflet available in reception.

 Surgery training

In order to improve the service we provide for you - our patients - we, together with our colleagues at other practices, sometime close for an afternoon.

There is still an urgent service available should you need to access healthcare during the afternoon and if you do need NHS help during this time we will give you a number to call.

We take extra steps to make sure we can see as many patients as possible during the morning of training days and open again first thing the next day.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused but hope that you can understand this activity, which will ensure we are able to provide you with the most up-to-date and best possible health services.

Training days in 2017 are as follows

Tuesday 28 February

Thursday 11 May

Wednesday 5 July

Expert patient training

For patients living with a long term health condition, expert patient training could help.  Please see the tab on the right under Further Information.
