Tudor Lodge Surgery is a training practice. This means that some of our GPs support, train and supervise students. These students will usually be qualified doctors who are undertaking post graduate study. We have also in 2014 become a nurse training practice. We will advise you at the time of your appointment if this is the case and if you are uncomfortable with this for any reason please do not hesitate to advise our reception team.

The practice also occasionally participates in research studies designed to improve future health care. All research studies are closely governed to ensure that patient confidentiality is protected and maintained and that the studies have passed the proper ethical requirements. If a study involves specific patients, those patients will be asked whether they would like to participate and given information. They have the right to decline involvement. It is entirely voluntary.

Improved Access

We are working together with other local practices to offer patients access to more appointments in the early mornings, evenings and at weekends. To find out more about these services, please contact the practice.

Patient update from Tudor Lodge Surgery:

Like other GP practices, we are affected by the current national shortage of blood tubes.

In order to continue blood tests for people with the greatest clinical need, we are delaying routine and non-urgent blood tests in line with national guidance.

If you have an appointment booked in the next few weeks the reception team will be in touch via phone or text. Your appointment will be rescheduled once the situation is resolved.

We will be providing regular updates on our website, which we encourage you to check for the latest info.

Please don’t contact us – we will be in touch with you when appointments can be rescheduled. Thank you for your patience and cooperation.
