The Culverhay Surgery

We are a group practice providing traditional family medicine to a high standard in our own purpose-built surgery. Our website has been designed to provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been built with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us. The technology also means you can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription or booking an appointment.

We're Having a Face Lift!

We are delighted to announce that building work will be starting at the surgery on 7th August. We have been successful in our bid to secure some funding which will enable us to renovate the inside of the surgery. This will include:

An additional consulting room, increasing from 4 to 5

New reception desk, and reception back office

New front entrance with automatic doors

Additional lighting in the car park

New training room in the roof space above the waiting room

General update and decoration

Building Work

The work will take place over 6 months from August 2017 – February 2018. We will be open as usual during this time, but obviously there will be some disruption to patients, visitors and to us!

The first phase of work includes the new front entrance and reception area. This is the biggest and most disruptive phase and will take approximately 3 months to complete. During this time patients will be directed to enter and exit the building via the side entrance (currently the staff entrance). We will have a much smaller temporary reception and waiting area during this time.

We are really excited about the work, and look forward to a much improved surgery building. Please bear with us during this time, we will do our best to continue operating as best we can.

Further details, and copies of the plans can be found with this link Culverhay Building Plans 2017 - 18 or there is a display in the foyer at the surgery (until 7th August).


The practice is taking part in the National Diabetes Audit (NDA).  The NDA collects information about diabetes care from GP practices and hospitals and is used to help the NHS to improve care for patients.

It is managed by the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC), working with Diabetes UK and Public Health England.  The information the audit collects is controlled by law and strict rules of confidentiality.

The NDA only uses information about your diabetes care that is already recorded.  For example, type of diabetes, latest blood pressure result and results of HbA1c, or eye screening tests.  The NDA is not a research project.  No extra blood tests, appointments or scans are needed.  You can choose not to take part if you have any concerns.

If you do not want your information to be used, please inform the surgery and we will make sure that this is noted on your medical records, so your information is not included.  This will not affect your care in any way.

For further information please see http://www.hscic.gov.uk/nda and https://www.diabetes.org.uk/Professionals/Resources/National-Diabetes-Audit/
