About Us

This website has been designed to tell you about the practice and the services that we offer. Please read it carefully. We trust that you will find it helpful and informative.

The Westerham Practice covers much of the North Downs area, from Limpsfield to Riverhead/Dunton Green and Halstead, and Westerham/Biggin Hill to Marlpit Hill, including many small villages, Toys Hill, Ide Hill, Crockham Hill, Brasted and Tatsfield. The practice is based at two main centres, Winterton Surgery just off Market Square in Westerham and The Medical Centre on the main road in Sundridge.

We are a dispensing practice and our Sundridge Surgery has a fully stocked dispensary and qualified dispenser. All new patients registering with our practice who live more than a mile from the chemist will be able to choose to have their drugs dispensed to them at the surgery or at their homes if the doctor is visiting. Arrangements can be made for the housebound to have their repeat medication delivered.

The doctors do occasionally support medical students to further their studies. This may involve the doctor requesting your permission for a student to be present at your consultation, but please do not feel obliged in any way to consent to this. Please note that the partners will not accept patients outside the practice area except under special circumstances. If you move outside the area, please re-register with a GP near your new home.
