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.
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.
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. We have also added a 3 new consulting rooms, taking us to a total of 10.
Innovations over the last few years have included a security system, new clinical rooms, new waiting areas, new admin room, modern hygienic flooring throughout.
