Welcome to Caterham Valley Medical Practice
The Practice area covers Caterham, Woldingham, North Godstone and parts of Chaldon and Warlingham. Please ask at Reception for specific road / street details.
Caterham Valley Medical Practice has four full time principal GPs serving approximately 9,500 patients.
We are a training practice so there will often be other fully qualified doctors attached to the practice in preparation for entering general practice in their own right. We also take part in the teaching of undergraduate medical students
An East Surrey wide training event is taking place in the afternoon of Wednesday 28th June. The practice will therefore be closed from Midday on that day.
Should you require urgent medical advice whilst the practice is closed, please call 111
