Client Testimonials


The GP was so helpful, he answered all my questions and I never felt rushed. Everything I needed was done then and there in one visit. Martin S.


re: Weight Management Services

Dear Jo and colleagues,
We both felt we would like to put in writing how much we feel the support you are all giving us has helped in our desire change our lifestyle and, therefore, consequently lose weight.  The one to one sessions at home have certainly motivated us greatly.  This change is lifestyle is benefiting us with other health issues i.e. diabetes, hypertension etc.
The other group sessions have not only been informative and enjoyable but we now also realise, from all the nice people we have met, that there are a multitude of problems that cause weight to be a problem.
Thanks again to you all, keep up the good work.

DEXA Scanning for Osteoporosis

SMC provide DEXA scanning for Brighton and Hove NHS referred patients as well as Private individuals who may be concerned about the condition of their bones.

Diagnosing osteoporosis on a scan
Osteoporosis is diagnosed on a bone density scanning machine when the amount of bone you have, as measured on the scan, is found to be significantly lower than average.

DEXA scanning is currently the most accurate and reliable method. It is a simple, painless procedure that uses very low doses of radiation. You will be asked to lie down for 10-15 minutes while an x-ray scanning arm passes over you to take an image of your spine and hip.

If you think you are at risk then talk to your GP to discuss whether a scan would be useful. Your GP will discuss your risk factors with you and then decide whether a referral is necessary.

We provide DEXA scanning from two locations:

If you are registered with a Brighton and Hove GP your appointment will be held at Lower Ground Floor, County Oak Medical Centre, Carden Hill, Brighton, BN1 8DD.

If you are registered with a Worthing GP your appointment will be held at 10 Clive Avenue, Goring by Sea, Worthing, BN12 4SG (accessed via carpark off Barrington Road).
