The new Trinity Medical Centre is a state of the art primary care facility serving ca 17,000 registered patients. The medical centre has invloved redevelopment of the Holy Trinity Church in Blatchington Road. The Grade 2 Listed 1850’s church has been transformed into over 1,300 sq m of fully NHS compliant surgery space over 3 new floors.
In addition to the new medical centre an on-site pharmacy has been built on the grounds close to the main surgery entrance with the rest of the site given over to parking and landscaping.
Trinity Medical Centre was formed following the merger and move of Sackville Medical Centre and Central Hove Surgery, both long established practices based in the heart of the Hove community.
We believe that the merger into Trinity Medical Centre will safeguard the future healthcare interests of all concerned in the 2 practices, including patients, staff and the partners, and provide greater opportunities. Access to the doctors and nurses with whom you are familiar will not be affected by the change.
Trinity Medical Centre aims to provide high quality health care in a responsive, supportive, courteous and cost effective manner, regardless of race, age, gender, disability, sexual orientation, religion or belief.
Our approach is patient centered, promoting partnership between clinician and patient.

We aim to provide high quality healthcare in a responsible and cost effective way, following local and national evidence based guidelines.
