Welcome to the home page of the Merstow Green Medical Practice website. We aim to provide all our patients with a high standard of personal, caring family medicine within the resources available to us and to deal with any problems you may have as quickly and efficiently as possible.
We hope to use our Surgery website as a way of presenting all our patients with an up to date resource for all information relating to our Practice. We will keep it current with any news, developments and details that are relevant to the Practice and our patients.
As well as a source of information about our Practice, the staff and the services we provide, we hope you use the website as a useful resource with links to other reliable websites for health related information. If there is topical health information we will also add this to the website.
Our team includes 7 GPs, 5 Nurses, Practice Pharmacist, 3 Health Care Assistants, our in-house Dispensary (available to eligible patients) with delivery service where appropriate, Reception, Medical Secretaries and Management staff.
Should you wish to register at our Practice, whether new to the area or from another local GP Surgery and you live within our Practice catchment area, please complete a registration form available from our Patient Liaison Team on the Reception desk.

Becky Griffiths - London Marathon 2020
Becky Griffiths, a member of the administration staff at our Practice, and her sister are taking part in the London Marathon next year in memory of their Auntie Ange, who after a short illness lost her battle against cancer in 2009, aged 54 years.
Macmillan Cancer Support helped Becky's family every step of the way. They became a huge part of Becky's family supporting them as they do in so many other people's lives.
Becky and her sister would love to give back to this amazing charity. We all know someone who has been affected by cancer and have been supported by a team like Macmillan Cancer Support, who are there for so many people helping them find the best way through, from the moment of diagnosis to live life emotionally, physically and financially.
Becky and her sister are holding various fundraising events in order to help raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support, of which the Practice is also supporting, including a bingo night, a car boot sale, a charity bike ride and cake sales.
If you would like to read Becky's story or make a donation to Macmillan Cancer Support, please visit her fundraising page Virgin Money Giving/Becky Griffiths.
On behalf of Becky, thank you.
