With effect from 27 June 2016 Whitley House Surgery will temporarily be unable to offer new patient registrations because the registered list size has increased.

This is in order to protect the quality of the services offered to those patients currently registered with the Practice.

We will also only be able to offer temporary patient/resident appointments to patients staying in a household that is already registered with this Practice.

New babies born to mothers who are registered  here will continue to be registered. If you have any queries regarding this decision please ask to speak to the Practice Manager or the Reception Manager. We will continue to review the list size on an on-going basis. If you have difficulty finding a Practice to register with please contact NHS England on 0300 3112233

Message from Dr Boon

It with genuine sadness I would like to announce that I will be leaving Whitley House Surgery at the end of June 2016. I have been so very fortunate in practicing as a GP at Whitley House over the last 20 years, with such a hardworking and dedicated team of people who are truly committed to delivering the highest quality of patient care.

At the present time family commitments are preventing me from fulfilling all my obligations as a Partner but I very much hope to be able to return to general practice at some point in the future.

Dr Cathy Boon

 Practice Leaflet

Whitley House Surgery Download our practice leaflet (updated Aug15)

 We are a long established training practice offering a personal, friendly service whilst delivering a high standard of medical care.  The practice was bought by Dr Theo Whitley in 1927 when it was located at Thorneybrook, New London Road (opposite where Marks and Spencer is now). Then it expanded and moved to Moulsham Street, where the surgery was named after Dr Whitley.

The surgery continued to grow and moved to refurbished premises in Writtle Road in September 2003. The building was previously occupied by Marconi and before that Crompton and Co.

 Our aim is to provide our registered patient population with high quality, personal health care. We aim to maintain and improve the health of our patients by working in partnership with them. Continuing professional development ensures the entire practice team work within national and local guidelines for the benefit of its patients. Click here to read our full mission statement - the aims and objectives with which we strive to run our organisation.

Urine and Stool Samples for Testing

If you have been asked to provide a urine or stool sample please note the following restrictions:

1) Stool samples - these must be delivered to the surgery by 12pm because they must be couriered to the hospital for testing. We are unable to store these samples overnight. If you arrive with your sample after 12pm, the only option would be for you to hand deliver it to the hospital yourself.

2) Urine samples - these can be dropped off anytime during surgery hours

Repeat Prescriptions

Do you need to re-order your medication? Visit our prescriptions page and complete the online form. Find out more

Medical Sick Certificates

Please note - you do not need to see a doctor to get a sick certificate until you have been unwell for 6 days or more. After 6 days a doctor will need to issue a certificate for you. If you subsequently need an extension to this, our reception staff can request this from the doctor on your behalf (you don't have to see a doctor). It takes 48 hours for this to be ready. Please also note we are unable to provide duplicate copies.
