Welcome to the Welbeck Surgery
Welbeck Surgery is a progressive practice aiming to provide the best evidence-based care possible.
We are pleased to have a small and cohesive team at Welbeck Surgery to offer you the best standards of healthcare in the primary care setting. We have two committed GP partners and a practice nurse working at the practice, supported by a Healthcare Assistant and the Admin Team. We also have other healthcare professionals that run clinics at the practice, including the Health Visitor, Diabetic Specialist Nurse and the Substance Misuse Service.
Our practice population is growing slowly and we have a higher than average number of patients over 65 years old in comparison to many Nottingham City practices. We also have a high number of patients in nursing or residential homes. Recent growth in our practice population is within young families and we are seeing an increasing number of babies and young children joining the practice. The surgery currently has approximately 4,500 patients.
UP TO DATE NEWS:
Due to Covid 19 Pandemic we are now not seeing people face to face for routine appointments. However WE ARE STILL OPEN MONDAY – FRIDAY FROM 8AM – 6.30PM and are able to offer telephone appointments for both routine and urgent issues.
We now have an intercom system so you will need to ring the bell and talk to reception. If you have a pre- booked appointment you will be asked to await outside until we call you in. You will be seen by a Health Care professional in full PPE. We ask that you wear a face covering when you attend the surgery.
SO ANY QUERIES PLEASE CALL THE SURGERY 0115 9620932 FOR ASSISTANCE
THANK YOU AND STAY SAFE.

Parking for Patients
Car parking is available for patients who are attending the surgery.
There is a parking area reserved for our disabled patients, which allows easier access to the main surgery entrance. The disabled parking area is clearly marked so please do not park in this area unless you are disabled.
Please note there are times when the car park can become particularly busy, especially on days when we are running extra clinics. We do understand the frustration this can cause.
Alternative free parking is available at the car park opposite the surgery on Spondon street, next to the Sherwood Library.
All our consulting rooms and treatment facilities are at ground level. Toilet facilities suitable for disabled patients are also on the ground floor.
There is a designated parking area for disabled drivers and entrance ramps to the building to make access easier
Named Accountable GP
Important Patient Information
As part of the new 2015/16 General Medical Services contract, ALL patients, (including children), should be informed that they have been allocated a named GP and this GP will be responsible for your overall care at the practice.
So what does this mean for you?
All our patients are allocated a named doctor. This does not mean you can only see this GP, as a patient you are quite within your rights to book, in advance, with the doctor you choose to see or continue to see the GP who is available on the day. Therefore you should see no change in the day to day running of the practice or your care.
However, if you wish to know who your allocated named GP is, you will find it at the bottom of the tear off slip of your prescription or we can give you this information at your request when you next attend the surgery or by contacting us. If you would like your allocated named GP changing we will make reasonable efforts to accommodate your request.
Please remember this DOES NOT affect which doctor you usually see at the practice.
Welbeck Surgery would like to invite you to join our
Patient Participation Group
