About

All of us here at Abbeywell Surgery work hard to maintain an excellent reputation, both as a traditional, patient-centred, holistic family practice, whilst making full use of the latest technology and research evidence to provide the very best care.

We maintain continuity of care by developing great relationships. We encourage patients to see the same Doctor, however, our Nurses are playing an ever increasing role in the provision of healthcare, taking the lead on many aspects of managing specific chronic conditions.

Some of our GPs are also specialised in particular areas and their expertise may prevent a hospital referral – giving you the opportunity to have your condition managed in the surgery quickly and effectively.
