Claremont Surgery

claremont-buildingClaremont Surgery is a long established training practice in Maidenhead, Berkshire and currently two partners are GP trainers. We often have more than one learner in post simultaneously.

We work from very spacious premises, in a Grade 2 listed Georgian building. We have nurse practitioners, practice nurses, district nurses, physiotherapists, a midwife and a dietician working on the premises, as well as the usual complement of administrative staff. We also have a dedicated “learning resources room” with library and internet access from all rooms.

We are a highly computerised practice and are now almost completely paperless. We have a history of being at the leading edge of developments in general practice. For example, we were first wave fund holders and have had several staff members working with the CCG. Despite all this, we are a friendly and welcoming practice, who value the stimulus of having GP trainees working with us and we have a variety of social events during the year in which all trainees are welcome to participate.

Maidenhead is a pleasant riverside town on the Thames, with easy access to both the M40 and the M4, Heathrow Airport and central London. The surrounding countryside is easily accessible for walking and cycling. The surgery itself is situated in the middle of the town, between a leisure centre, public tennis courts and a park.

We are a seven partner practice with a number of outside interests, including GP training, CCG and local medical politics.

The GP registrar works in the practice Monday to Friday, but has a whole day release on Tuesday. The out of hours arrangements are in line with national recommendations.

We would welcome informal enquiries by telephone to Dr Perihan Colyer or Dr Huw Thomas on 01628 624469 and are happy for prospective trainees to visit the practice by prior arrangement. You are also welcome to speak to current or previous trainees for a chat about the practice.
