Our Practice History
The practice was started by Dr Smellie before World War II and moved to 16 York Road in the 1940s. He was joined by Dr Symonds and later Dr Francis, followed by Dr Carmichael and Dr Lytton. In 1979 the practice opened the first doctor's surgery in Goldsworth Park and Dr Lander and Dr Collins joined the other doctors. In 1986 the practice moved into the new Goldsworth Park Health Centre and was joined by Dr Braiden. Four years later, in January 1991, Dr Carmichael retired and was replaced by Dr Sellars. In 1990 we moved from our premises in York Road to a new building, adjacent to Woking Community Hospital in Heathside Road. The building was named York House Medical Centre in recognition of our historical links with York Road.
As a result of our growing list size Dr Grove joined us in August 1998. Dr Lytton retired in June 2002 and was replaced by Dr Gaur. Dr Braiden and Dr Grove moved onto pastures new and were replaced by Dr Clayton in 2002 and Dr Perera in 2005. Dr Singh joined the practice as a partner in January 2008 but has now left , with Dr Khatoon joining in 2012. Dr Collins retired as a partner in October 2013 with Dr Juliet Graham replacing her. We also have the services of salaried doctor Dr Honnor, Dr Swampillai and Dr Amber Khan.
We became an accredited training practice in August 2013. This involves the post-graduate training of fully qualified doctors who wish to specialize in General Practice.
We train first anf final year medical students via St George's Hospital NHS Trust.
