About Our Practice

Our Practice

Welcome to acorn surgery

acorn surgery opened its doors to patients in March 2001, initially based in temporary accommodation whilst the Oak Tree Centre was being built. During the first two years the Practice became the fastest growing GP Practice in the history of the NHS! The number of patients on the Practice list is now over 10,500 and we see our continued steady growth as a huge vote of confidence in our extensive range of patient services and quality of care.

We continue to be one of the highest scoring GP practices in the country in terms of Quality and Outcomes and in 2017 were rated ‘Outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission, a rating we have maintained since.
