Welcome to Goldsworth Medical practice
We are a busy practice working from two purpose built sites with 9 doctors and a list size of 12000 patients. We run many clinics, for acute illnesses to chronic disease care, and offer a wide variety of other medical services.
We aim to make you and your family welcome and as comfortable as possible and we hope you will find us friendly and approachable.
Our ethos is to provide excellence in family medicine and to offer high quality evidence-based NHS primary health care to all our patients. We have Family doctors who are trained in the principles of the discipline of Family Medicine. They are personal doctors, primarily responsible for the provision of comprehensive and continuing care to every individual seeking medical care irrespective of age, race, sex and illness.
Our Practice History
The practice was started by Dr Smellie before World War II and moved to 16 York Road in the 1940s. He was joined by Dr Symonds and later Dr Gillies, followed by Dr Carmichael and Dr Lytton. In 1979 the practice opened the first doctor's surgery in Goldsworth Park and Dr Lander and Dr Collins joined the other doctors. In 1986 the practice moved into the new Goldsworth Park Health Centre and was joined by Dr Braiden. Four years later, in January 1991, Dr Carmichael retired and was replaced by Dr Sellars. In 1990 we moved from our premises in York Road to a new building, adjacent to Woking Community Hospital in Heathside Road. The building was named York House Medical Centre in recognition of our historical links with York Road.
As a result of our growing list size Dr Grove joined us in August 1998. Dr Lytton retired in June 2002 and was replaced by Dr Gaur. Dr Braiden and Dr Grove moved onto pastures new and were replaced by Dr Clayton in 2002 and Dr Perera in 2005. Dr Singh joined the practice as a partner in January 2008 and in 2012 Dr Khatoon has joined as a partner. We have also have the services of two salaried doctors, Dr Honnor and Dr Reade.
