Winners of an NHS innovation award for 2016

Fed up with waiting on hold? Instead of calling the practice you can now fill in an Online Consultation form or go to Patient Access – 24 hours a day/ 7 days a week at your convenience.

The questions you will be asked mirror those of a consultation with your GP. Once we have received your Online Consultation, the doctors will look at your form and get back to you by the end of the next working day. It is likely the doctor will be able to help you via a phone call, text or video consultation and they can arrange a face to face appointment if required.

We are not offering COVID-19 Testing. 

Please visit the NHS website.

We accept new patient registrations

You may become unwell and need advice from a doctor.  If you are NOT registered with a doctor please contact the surgery or  Find more details here

Friends & Family Test Comments

They have a fantastic rapport with patients and will always do what they can to help.

Attenborough moved a couple of weeks ago into a new purpose built surgery. All the doctors we have seen so far are excellent, waiting time is kept to a minimum

The new building, which also has an on site Pharmacy, is great fun using bright colours on the comfortable waiting room chairs. Well done Attenborough. K

I am very happy with Attenborough Surgery. My husband who needs extra care, has always been looked after very well.

The best surgery for my husband and myself!

I rung the doctors for an appointment on the Wednesday. I was very surprised to be offered 4 appointments on the Saturday afternoon and 1 on the Sunday. I work throughout the week and can now go to the doctor at the weekend.

At all times the staff at Attenborough Surgery have tried to help me to the best of their ability.

Professional and friendly, approachable staff. Ability to make a suitable appointment. Confidence in treatment and advice given.

They see me when it is really necessary with charm and professionalism.  Always helpful.

Generally polite and helpful attitude in all departments. Ability to request prescriptions and appointments online.

If it is not broken – don’t fix it -Applies at your Practice – including Reception.

GPs here are all very good and always have time for their patients even if you have more than one ailment.

Always happy with treatment and Doctors very helpful.

Extremely supportive, friendly and also professional.

Always received good care from the Doctors here.

Kind and friendly service – felt listened to and understood.

Wonderful service and care by all staff and doctors.

Very co-operative to speak to Doctors. Speedy appointments, good attention.

Telephone response to speak to a Dr. Very efficient. Turn round of prescription request fast.

Brilliant during my treatment for breast cancer.

Treatment and care has been very good

Practice is patient driven. Reception are most helpful. Doctors are available and approachable and listen to give best care to myself and wife. A really effective Practice.

Attended for an NHS Healthcheck. Both the Receptionist when making the appointment and the Nurse were extremely helpful. The Nurse in particular put me at ease and was very pleasant.

Having transferred from another surgery recently I am overwhelmed by the service offered at this surgery by All. I had come to expect to be treated poorly.

Saw one of the Doctors a week ago and I wanted to share how fantastic she was. I was given one of the best service I have had from an NHS GP.
