St Mary's Surgery

The Practice will endeavour to always offer services to our patients that comply with NHS Standards.

The care of your health is a partnership between yourself and the Primary Health Care Team. The success of that partnership depends on an understanding of each other’s needs and co-operation between us.

Training Practice

St Mary's is fortunate to be a training practice, which means there may be a doctor working in the practice alongside the established partners and are normally with us for one year. This doctor will have already had extensive hospital training and is known as a General Practice Registrar.
