Welcome to Old Road West Surgery 

Please note that following the announcement by the government for Monday 19th July, NHS England and Public Health England have advised that GP surgeries need to maintain public safety and prevent the spread of infections especially in view of covid variants.

We have always been open throughout the pandemic and continue to provide the best service to our communities in the safest manner.
