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 9,000 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

Wednesday 21st September  An East Surrey wide training event will be taking place on the afternoon of Wednesday 21st September.  Please be advised that the practice will therefore be CLOSED from MIDDAY.

Should you require urgent medical advice whilst the practice is closed, please telephone 111.

The practice will re-open as usual on Thursday 22nd September.

Dr Wright and Dr Hamilton have recently taken up positions on the board of the local Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and will no longer be working in the practice full time. They have said that they are happy for their patients to be seen by any of the other doctors and would like to encourage you to do so.

We have appointed a new part time GP called Dr Clare Watson, partly to cover Dr Wright's and Dr Hamilton's absence but also because we are aware of the need for more appointments.
