The practice originated in 1925 when Drs Barron and Caldwell joined together to form a new practice in Devonshire Lodge in Seaside. It moved to the Winifred Lee Health Centre (now Horder Healthcare) when it first opened in 1974 under the leadership of Dr Craib.
The practice gradually expanded and outgrew the 'Wini Lee' and after several years of searching for a new site, The Princes Park Health Centre was built and opened on 1st January 2000. The Winifred Lee Health Centre was then redeveloped and re-opened as The Apollo Centre in July 2002, which has since been renamed Horder Healthcare Eastbourne in January 2013.
The Princes Park Health Centre runs entirely NHS services.
The practice has six permanent doctors and visiting GPs and other associates when required. This is part of a team of primary health care staff that also includes practice nurses and support from reception, secretarial and managerial staff. Our aim is to provide the fullest possible care which includes maternity services, contraceptive services, child health, certain forms of minor surgery as well as the usual medical care. Services are also available from attached staff including an audiologist, retinal screening, full digital X-ray service, DXA (Bone Density), stop smoking (One You) and MRI Scanning.
- The health centre has access for the disabled and parking space is available.
- There are nappy changing facilities on the premises.
- Smoking is not permitted anywhere in the building.
