Having formed from the merger of two practices in 1964, the practice is now one of the largest in the Cotswolds and covers an area of nearly 300 square miles of rural Gloucestershire. Eight doctors work from two main surgeries, providing general medical care to over 10,000 patients.

The practice has been operating from its present premises at Moore Health Centre in Bourton-on-the-Water since July 1998, and from the Westwoods Surgery in Northleach since 2003.

GP Practice Pressures

You may have seen stories in the press and on TV about the pressures the NHS is under and GP practices in particular. This practice is no different and we are experiencing unprecedented increases in requests for appointments, prescriptions, referrals and home visits.

In order to provide patients with the most appropriate and efficient service, we have introduced a triage system every day. This means that if you call the surgery for an urgent appointment or a home visit, we will ask one of the GPs to phone you back.  They will talk to you about the problem you are having and decide with you the most appropriate course of action. This may mean coming to the surgery to see a GP or nurse, arranging a home visit, using some medication you already have at home, or collecting a prescription from us or the the chemist. In some cases they may ask you to provide a sample or attend the surgery for a blood test.
