As from December 11th, Dr Unnikrishnan is leaving our surgery. He had been a valued GP Partner for almost 15 years and all our staff wish him all the very best for the future.

We now provide a small number of appointments especially for young people (13-19yrs) so they can either talk to or see a clinician to discuss any problems. Contact the surgery to ask when these appointments are available every week. 

Care Quality Commission Inspection

The Friarwood Surgery was inspected by a CQC Team on Thursday 24th September 2015, we  received positive feedback from the inspection team on the day which has lead to our official report being published.

The good news is that we were awarded a rating of OUTSTANDING which is a wonderful achievement for all of our hard working and caring staff. This result puts your GP surgery in the top 4% best rated in England. 

The surgery would like to thank the members of the Patient Participation Group for their positive engagement on the day of the inspection and for their ongoing support to help drive us forward on behalf of all of our patients.

Good News: Free WIFI now available in the surgery for patients.

Please Note: New Travel Questionnaire added on the right side of the website for patients to fill in when they have any requests for travel vaccinations.
