Please note: We remain closed for general enquires
Patients should only attend the surgery for the per booked appointments, either with the nursing team or in circumstances where the GP has asked you to come to the surgery following a telephone appointment. All enquires or requests for appointments must be made via the telephone. We appreciate your patience and support in this matter.
We are currently limiting access to the surgery to those people with a immediate medical problem and are unable to deal with general enquires in person. Please telephone for advise but be patient as we anticipate we will experience high call volumes
Please note that we have reintroduced some pre-bookable appointments. These appointments are available to book online or by telephoning the surgery . If you have a non-urgent medical problem to discuss or wish to speak to a specific GP, please consider booking one of these appointments. If you call the surgery to book, you will be asked the nature of the problem so that the GP can be informed before they call. If you book online, please give a brief note to the problem in the booking notes.

PLEASE NOTE, THIS SURGERY TAKES PART IN CLINICAL RESEARCH.
Furnace Green Surgery is a four Doctor Partnership - two female and two male. The partners are supported by a Salaried GP plus a team of Nursing and non-clinical staff with vast experience. The practice operates from its surgery premises in the Glade, Furnace Green and care for around 7,300 patients. On the rare occasion, locum doctors also help but we have a policy of using the same locum whenever possible to give continuity of care. Furnace Green Surgery has been approved for GP and medical student training and each year one or more fully qualified doctors with experience in hospital medicine may spend time with the practice as part of their preparation to become general practitioners. They share all aspects of patient care and the partners welcome their contribution to the team. Occasionally, medical students may also spend time with the practice. The practice is visited at times by other doctors, representing KSS GP Deanery, who oversee standards of training within the practice and inspect patient records during the visit. Please notify reception if you wish to exclude your medical records from this process.
