Eastbourne GP Specialist Training
Lighthouse Medical Practice: Ian Gow Memorial Health Centre
Greg Folwell is the trainer at the Ian Gow Memorial Health Centre which is a purpose built premises completed in 1991. This is part of a two centre practice (the Lighthouse Medical Practice) comprising ten partners, 4 of whom work from the Ian Gow Memorial Health Centre. We have a full complement of attached health visitors, district nurses as well as our own practice nurses. Dietitians, speech therapists and podiatry as well as community dentistry are all provided on site. The surgery is fully computerised using the versatile EMIS system.
The area serves a mixed population with some areas of social deprivation and overall a rather younger population than is to be found in other areas of Eastbourne. The registrar has exclusive use of his/her own room and receives excellent support from the team at the health centre.
