Westbury Medical Centre History

Westbury Medical Centre

Westbury Medical Centre has been a doctor's surgery since the early 1900s. In the 1950s the resident doctor lived on the upper floors and shared the surgery premises with a dentist and an optician who had a room each.

Dr Sheridan

Many of our older patients still fondly remember Dr Sheridan who spent 34 years as a partner in the practice. He died in 2007 at the age of 83. An obituary of Dr Sheridan, who had an impressive life and an illustrious career, appeared in The Times (It can be found here).

Since 1970

Since 1970 it has been a group practice consisting of four doctors and over the years as the practice list grew we had to expand into a shop next door to make provision for a new waiting room and nurses treatment, room. Innovations over the last few years have included a fire alarm and emergency lighting system, new office, refurbished patient's toilet, air conditioning, double glazing and modern hygienic flooring throughout.

Where are We Today

Currently we have four doctors, two highly qualified nurse practitioners, one Physician Associate and three health care assistants and are a training practice for medical students.
