We are amongst the South coast's most well established Private COVID-19 testing centres, having reliably provided this service since testing became available outside the NHS in June 2020. We believe we offer amongst the fastest turn-around for RT-PCR COVID-19 test results in the country.
We are an UKAS accredited centre and are pleased to offer Public Health England evaluated, accredited COVID-19 (Corona virus) laboratory tests. These can be posted to your home across the United Kingdom or collected from the Hove Practice.
These are highly accurate and can be used to determine if you are currently suffering from (RT-PCR swab) or have suffered (either IgG or IgG AND IgM antibody blood tests) COVID-19. We also now offer antibody tests to the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein, which may prove useful in determining the level of an individual's response to COVID-19 vaccination, although its clinical significance is yet to be confirmed.
Our COVID-19 RT-PCR are available to use for Travel and Day 5 "Test to Release" for travellers who have not been in or through any country that is on the travel ban red list in the 10 days before arrival in England. We do not currently offer Day 2 nor Day 8 testing. Due to the uncertainties of COVID-19 testing, we can never guarantee results within a time frame, however we strive to offer test results that are performed in time for our morning courier (10.45 am) before midnight the same day.
Please see our dedicated COVID-19 testing page for more information or click here to book online now. Alternatively you can contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org or 01273 733830) to order a test during our opening hours.
We are welcoming patients to the practice for face to face review for non-feverish illnesses and medical reviews/check ups. It is essential that the pandemic does not deter general medical care and we are determined to provide this for you. In order to protect you, vulnerable patients and our staff we ask that you please DO NOT visit the practice without an appointment.
Alternatively, we offer high quality telephone and secure private medicine video consultations which can be booked online here or via telephone (01273 733830). These are suitable for a wide range of general practice ailments and have proved very popular to patients within Brighton, Hove, London and beyond.
Registered patients can request prescriptions via email (email@example.com) or telephone. Once reviewed and approved by one of our doctors, they will be sent directly to the pharmacy of your choosing for collection.
Please remember, if you are short of breath, have chest pain or are struggling due to a deterioration in your health please call 111/999 according to severity or visit here for NHS triaging and further information specifically relating to COVID-19.
The Hove Practice provides the best that private healthcare has to offer, tailored to you.

We look after people of all ages: babies and young families, busy professionals, and older adults. Whatever your stage in life, we have a programme to suit you and your family.
Your private GPs will get to know you, building a trusting and professional alliance between doctor and patient, ensuring a personal and responsive approach to give you the best care private medicine has to offer.
Although we practice exclusively private medicine, we can work closely and confidentially with your existing NHS GP, and provide you with general practice guidance and a second opinion. Registration at The Hove Practice does not require a commitment, nor do you have to live in Brighton or Hove; we care for patients all over the United Kingdom and will see you as much or as little as you need.
