Smallfield Surgery is a ‘training practice’. This means that at times hospital doctors wanting to enter general practice spend up to a year with us in order to gain the experience they need to become family doctors. Other practice health care professionals are also involved in training and one of the nurses, for example, might have a nurse training to become a practice nurse sitting in with her.
This website is for both existing patients and those considering registering with us. It tells you about our services, how to access them and some general information about how our practice operates.
If you live in our practice area and would like to register with us, please complete one of the registration forms that are available from reception. We will ask for proof of identity and proof of address. You will be registering with the practice rather than an individual GP, but you are welcome to specify a preferred doctor if you wish. We will also ask you to complete a form that gives us some basic information about your medical history and you will be encouraged to book for a basic check with one of our nurses. Such a check is essential if you are on repeat medication.The practice does not discriminate on the grounds of race, gender, social class, age, religion, sexual orientation or appearance, disability or medical condition.
