The practice originated in the early 1900s, when partners practised from their own homes. Some older patients may remember the names of doctors from years gone by... Dr Winter, Dr Croft Watts, Dr Lupton, Dr Secker Walker and of course Dr Hunter Dunn (father of Joan in Betjeman's poem). In more recent years we have seen the retirement of well-respected partners such as Dr Tony Turner, Dr Lind Wright, Dr Arthur MacAdam, Dr John Holden, Drs Stephen and Lorraine Linton & Dr Neil Gibbons.
The present purpose-built premises were opened in 1968, a design well ahead of its time and still admired by patients and staff alike. The large waiting area and all consulting rooms are on the ground floor. The building was extended in the mid 1990s, incorporating extra facilities for counselling/psychology, conference room, management and office rooms, and staff room.
The four partners in the practice are : Dr Glen Micklethwaite, Dr Nick Hughes, Dr Dheshni Moodley, and Dr Anirban Pal. Dr John de Verteuil, Dr Abigail Inglis, Dr Georgie Calvert and Dr Amina Masood are salaried doctors.
The practice has about 11500 patients from Farnborough, Cove and North Camp. We provide primary care services for everyone including minor surgery, family planning, maternity care and child health surveillance. We run a Travel Clinic for those intending to go abroad (we are a registered Yellow Fever Centre).
We are a GP Training practice and as such train GP Registrars, one or two of whom will be attached to the practice for a year. We also train doctors in the Frimley Park scheme who are still engaged in their hospital posts as well as medical students in their final years of training.
