Wednesday 17th January 2018 – Practice Training
In order to improve the service we provide for you - our patients - we will be closed on the afternoon of Wednesday 17th January for training.
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 please call 0300 5555 252.
We have taken extra steps to make sure we can see as many patients as possible during the morning on this date and we will be open again as normal first thing on Thursday 18th January 2018.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused but hope that you can understand the importance of this activity, which will ensure we are able to provide you with the most up-to-date and best possible health services.
Please remember A&E is only for patients requiring accident and emergency care, for serious and life threatening conditions. Please use the number above if you have concerns about your health on this afternoon and only use A&E in an emergency.

From time to time patients will present to us, most usually with either dental pain of dental related infection. The General Medical Council (GMC) and British Medical Association (BMA) guidance is very clear, as follows;
“GPs should not attempt to manage a condition requiring dental skills unless they have the appropriate training and expertise. Both the civil courts and the GMC require doctors to have appropriate skills for any treatment they offer.” It goes on to advise that the treatment of dental problems is not the responsibility of GPs and that the patient should be advised to contact local urgent or emergency dental services, or in severe circumstances the nearest accident and emergency department.

Dr David Pullan retires from PMG
After 18 years working at Pulborough Medical Group I decided to retire from the practice at the end of June 2017. It has been a privilege to serve the local community and to get to know so many interesting people in Pulborough and the surrounding area. Dr Leigh-Anne Bascombe will be taking over the care of my patients. She has been working at the practice already for a year and some of you may already have met her. She is held in very high regard by all of us at PMG and is a great general practitioner.
I wish to thank all the partners and staff at PMG for supporting me over the years. It has been a real honour to work alongside so many dedicated people. It comes as no surprise that the CQC rated the practice as outstanding.
I plan to work part time in general practice more locally to Chichester where I live.
I wish everyone all the best in the future. I leave knowing that the practice will continue to grow and develop and adapt to all the new challenges in the NHS.
Best Regards, Dr D Pullan
