Also known as: Freshford Practice
This surgery offers extraordinary care and a wonderful service, all staff are warm and friendly. I feel in control of my health with the support of the Doctors, I dont always come away with a prescription but more often than not an awareness as to how to manage my own health. I am a carer for my husband he has a long term chronic condition and is supported with this by Dr Kim Andrews, she is an exceptional doctor, has an excellent manner she has a good understanding of my husband and how he lives with his conditions, because of her management of his conditions he remains well and has great confidence in her care and that of the practice.
The receptionists only care if you’re above the age of 50. They’ll tell you that results from certain tests aren’t in and they actually are. They’ll also tell you that there are no appointments available yet they are on system online. I was in with a doctor all of 2 minutes before they couldn’t be bothered anymore and just referred me which will take months, and when I try and ask about another problem they tell me my appointment is over and I need to book another. Absolutely disgusting service by receptionists and certain doctors.

Great place to be a patient. You are treated with respect in a friendly helpful way. GPs answer questions, discuss and explain. I would hate to move away from the area!
since transfering to freshwell in 2016 the care and attention has been first class.i would like to express special thanks to Mary-ann who has been more successful in my diebetes care in 6 months than 15 years at previous surgery.many thanks to all involved.
My young daughter had a medication review with Dr Mackin today & she was absolutely lovely! She took the time to explain how the medicine works to my daughter, and as a result she is more engaged with her treatment. Really happy (& lucky) that we are patients at Freshwell :)
