Dear Patient,

From April 2015 GP practices are required to provide all their patients with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that the surgery provides to them.  Having a named GP does not prevent you from seeing your usual GP or any other GP in the practice as you have previously been able to.



The surgery will be closed on Monday the 31st of August.  The surgery re-opens again Tuesday the 1st of September at 8am.

Should you need to see a doctor during this time please call 111 and you will be directed to the most appropriate service.





The aim of Sutherland Lodge is to use the funds allocated to them for Health Care to reduce morbidity and improve the quality of life for its patient population, by offering a caring medical service of the highest quality based on established professional standards that satisfies the needs of our patients and is provided by professionally competent, content and motivated staff.




This is to inform our Patients that after more than 40 years’ service to the NHS, Dr Edelsten has now retired. Dr Edelsten joined the Practice on 1st July 1981 and became our Senior Partner on the retirement of Dr Nadra in July 2004. We are sure that patients will miss her enormously.

The new Senior Partner from 1st July 2015 will be Dr G Cunniffe.

Friends & Family Test December 2014

There will be no requirement for Surgeries to complete a Survey this year as this is being replaced by the ‘Friends & Family Test’.

The question in the ‘Friends & Family Test’ is: How likely are you to recommend our services to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?’

The possible answers are:

‘Extremely likely; Likely; Neither likely or unlikely; Unlikely; Extremely Unlikely; and Don’t Know’

These answers generate scores and once these are determined, the result is sent to NHS England on a monthly basis to be published on the NHS Choices website.

Please look out for the papers containing these questions which will be in Reception from December 2014.  Or you can complete this online.
