About Us

Burdwood Surgery

The surgery was purpose built in 1987. We are a PMS practice, with three GP partners and five salaried GPs. As a training practice, we also have GP registrars. The practice is urban, looking after the south eastern part of Thatcham. Our population of approximately 10,500 is relatively young, but there will be abundant opportunity to experience care of the elderly and as our population expands, it’s becoming more diverse.


It is quick and easy to register with a GP using our simple online GP registration form. Whether you are new to the area or have never registered with a GP practice before, there is usually no need to come to the practice to complete your registration. We are a local GP Practice and have a catchment area for home visiting purposes.

Meet our Team

Our team includes Doctors, Practice Nurses, Healthcare Assistants, Pharmacist, Paramedics, Receptionists and Administrators. We are a training practice so we host GP Registrars who are trainee GPs.

GP Registrars are members of the vocational training scheme at Reading. They attend a full day release at the post-graduate centre at the Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading. Registrars have a half day protected tutorial each week, aiming to provide a foundation for independent practice in the future.

We have visiting midwives from both the Royal Berkshire Hospital and the Basingstoke North Hampshire Hospital who run clinics here once a week. Occasionally we have a midwifery student attached.

Health Visitors continue to monitor children under school age but no longer run clinics from our premises; instead, their clinics are now held at Central Family Hub in Thatcham.
