About us

Woodlands Surgery was originally formed out of three, well established smaller surgeries merging together in 2005. Our first premises was based on Station Road until we relocated to our permanent, purpose build surgery at Eden House on Bateman Street. As a surgery we aim to provide the best possible care & support, in a clinical as well as a holistic sense. We host a number of other healthcare providers within our premises currently including; counsellors, ultrasound diagnostics, psychologists. We aim to extend the range of services accessible to our patients in the near future. We also have a strong focus on education & training of our staff & the future generation of doctors. In addition we actively participate in research As a practice we consider that medical research is fundamental for improving the health of the population, along with supporting advances in the field of medicine. Limited parking space is available.
