Travel Information

The surgery is located in Portland Road on the junction with School Road. There are several travel options:

By foot. For those that are able, walking is a healthy way to visit the surgery. According to research, it strenghthens the heart, lowers the risk of diseases such as diabetes, can cause weight loss and lowers the risk or dementia and depression. The pavements locally are well maintained and there is a pedestrian crossing, recently upgraded, over Portland Road located outside of the West Hove School.

By cycle. Again a healthy way to travel. Cycling can help with weight loss, reduce stress and improve fitness while being a low impact sport easier on the bodies joints than some other forms of exercise. There are several cycle racks outside of the surgery for you to be able to safely lock your bicycle. Cycle training is provided to school children free of charge by the local aothority, details of which can be found at

Public transport. We are well served by buses, with a bus stop located outside of the surgery for those travelling from Portslade. Bus numbers 2,7,25,25X, 46, 49, 95, 95A and N25 stops here. From Brighton, the stop is located by the crossing opposite the school. For those who wish to travel by taxi, there is a freephone in our lobby and a rank located by our main entrance door. See transport plan below

By Car. There is no onsite parking. Controlled parking operates outside of the surgery, with most of the local roads being payable or permit holder only. If getting a lift, please ensure that your driver parks legally.

We are currently working with our Patient Group to look at options for a disabled parking and also a drop off zone.
