Birchwood is a dispensing practice with a list size in excess of 11000 patients. We are based in a modern purpose built premises in an expanding but rural market town. There is quick access to Norwich by car (20 minutes) and a railway station located within a ten-minute walk from the surgery.

Our five partners share an enthusiasm for training in respect of both registrars and undergraduates. We currently have two qualified trainers - Dr Stuart Davidson and Dr Paul Everden - together with three Associate Trainers - Dr John Luck, Dr James Gair and Dr Pat Bunning.

We pride ourselves on our high level of computerisation which includes internet access from all PCs together with a bespoke electronic messaging system and scanning package. We have a large library and excellent teaching facilities including permanently linked digital projection facilities.

The practice deals with minor surgery and minor injuries and runs a range of chronic disease clinics. The practice employs an ECP who is based at the surgery and regular secondary care clinics operate out of the practice.

We would welcome the opportunity to show interested candidates around the practice. If you would like to visit or talk through what we have to offer, please contact Dr Stuart Davidson or Tony Belham our Business Manager
