Other News

The news of Abbey Court Medical Centre going into special measures has been published in the local press.

Please can we take the opportunity to state that Abbey Court Medical Centre is a completely different surgery to Clanricarde Medical Centre.

Clanricarde happens to be resident at the 'Abbey Court' building complex, which also houses a Diabetic Centre, and a Kidney Centre among others. Abbey Court Medical Centre are also resident at the 'Abbey Court' complex, but are not to be confused with Clanricarde.

As can be found at the bottom of our webpage, Clanricarde were given a ‘Good’ rating by the CQC.


The website provides many online facilities, including appointment booking and cancellation, registration, prescription ordering, and much more. It also contains a vast range of health information and resources, along with practical information on visiting the surgery. We hope you find it useful and informative.


Presently our complement includes Drs Averill, Thomas, Kirk-Smith, Jones, Morris, Creed & Koshal.

Telephone: 01892 546422 *
Fax: 01892 533987
Out Of Hours: NHS 111

* Can we ask all of our patients to refrain from calling the surgery between 8.30am - 9.30am unless it is of an urgent medical nature.  We need to keep our phone lines free for patients who are unwell on the day and have to get through to us to book urgent appointments.
All routine appointments must be booked in advance, not on the day.

Accountable/Named GP

From the 1st of April 2015, the practice is required under the terms of the latest GP contract to allocate all patients a named accountable GP.

This is purely an administrative exercise in order that patients can have a named responsible GP should they require them.

For convenience your named accountable GP will be the named doctor you are registered with.

If you wish to be told the name of your accountable GP, please ask the receptionists when you are next in the surgery.

Please note: there is no need to telephone the practice for this information.

If you need input from a variety of health professionals, then you can discuss these with the named GP if you wish. Alternatively you can discuss these with any of the other doctors.

Having a named GP does not prevent you seeing any other doctor in the practice. Your named GP will not be available at all times and if your needs are urgent, you may need to discuss them with an alternative doctor.

How information about you helps the NHS to provide better care

Confidential information from your medical records can be used by the NHS to improve the services offered so they can provide the best possible care for everyone. This information along with your postcode, date of birth, gender and NHS number but not your name, are sent to a secure system where it can be linked with other information such as diagnoses and medication. This allows those planning NHS Services to use information in a way that does not identify you. The data is governed by data protection laws.

If you are happy for your information to be used in this way, you do not need to do anything. If you have concerns or wish to prevent this from happening, please speak with a member of staff or ask for a copy of the leaflet "How information about you helps us to provide better care". More information can be found at

An opt out form can be requested from reception.
