We are here to support you to manage your health throughout your life. Our dedicated team are here to treat those minor ailments that occur, as well as providing specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues.
Once you are registered with us, our healthcare professionals will work with you to ensure the most appropriate care is provided. We have many clinics to support our patient population, from acute illnesses to chronic disease management and ongoing care, offering a wide variety of medical services. This partnership philosophy extends even further, and our active patient group exists to try to make sure that patient needs and the practice offering are always heading in the same direction.
We became an accredited training practice since August 2013 which means provision post-graduate training of fully qualified doctors who wish to specialize in general practice.
We are a training practice and several of our GP’s are involved in the training of doctors and medical students which we will be extending in 2021 to include nurses and physician associates. Additionally, we train first and final year medical students via St George’s Hospital NHS Trust. We believe that this continuous involvement in medical education helps the practice to focus on the provision of high quality care, both now and in the future
We are a busy practice working from two purpose built premises in Woking, with 8 GPs and a list size of 12,500 registered patients across both sites.
This practice was started by Dr Smellie before World War II and moved to 16 York Road in Woking in the 1940s. In 1979 we opened the first doctor’s surgery in Goldsworth Park when Dr Lander and Dr Collins joined and in 1986 that branch moved into Goldsworth Park Health Centre. In 1990 the main branch moved from 16 York Road into a new building adjacent to Woking Community Hospital in Heathside Road. The building was named York House Medical Centre in recognition of our historical links with York Road.
As a result of our growing list size Dr Grove joined us in August 1998. Dr Lytton retired in June 2002 and was replaced by Dr Upendra Gaur. Then Dr Braiden and Dr Grove moved onto pastures new and were replaced by Dr Clayton in 2002 and Dr Preethi Perera in 2005. Dr Singh joined the practice as a GP partner in January 2008 but has now left, with Dr Tahira Khatoon joining in 2012. Dr Collins retired as a GP partner in October 2013 with Dr Juliet Graham replacing her.
