Woodlands Surgery was formed out of three, well established surgeries merging together in 2005. With a strong focus on wellbeing, we aim to provide the best possible care and support. In addition to primary care, we host a range of external healthcare services. This includes: Counselling, Physiotherapy, Ultrasound Diagnostics, Oncology, Midwife Clinics and Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT) clinics. We focus on staff education and training to build adaptive skills and to inspire our future generation of doctors. In addition, we actively participate in clinical research as we believe this is fundmental to improve health, and to advance the field of medicine. Limited parking space is available.
At Woodlands Surgery we take a multifaceted approach to patient healthcare. This means not only focusing on the cure, but also on prevention and information to help patients lead a healthy fulfilled lifestye.
We believe in:
- Putting patient welfare at the heart of all we do.
- Treating everyone with compassion, dignity and respect.
- Providing information and supporting patients in making decisions about their health.
- Collaborating effectively with others involved in patients care (with your consent)
- Keeping up to date by pursuing a forward-looking, adaptable approach to healthcare.
- Maintaining confidentiality at all times.
- Providing patients with a voice, feedback on your service is welcomed at all times.
Commitment to Teaching
Woodlands Surgery is a dedicated teaching practice with close links to Cambridge University, Kings College London, University College London and Anglia Ruskin University.
Throughout the year we have GP registrars, student doctors and nurses and work experience. Teaching at all levels allows the practice to remain up to date with new processes as well as imparting knowlege and influencing the next generation of clinicians.
As a patient your roll in teaching is extremely important and we will always ask your consent prior to booking. If you would like to express your interest in being a volunteer please contact us via email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Woodlands Surgery 2018/19 Publication of Earnings
All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (eg average) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.
The average pay for GPs working at the WOODLANDS SURGERY in the last financial year before tax and national insurance is £42,927. This is for 8 part time GPs who worked in the practice for more than 6 months.
It should be noted that the prescribed method for calculating earnings is potentially misleading because it takes no account of how much time doctors spend working in the practice, and should not be used to form any judgement about GP earnings, nor to make any comparison with any other practice.
