We are aware of Boris Johnson announcing the end of all remaining COVID restrictions, and the provision of free testing, in England.
Please note:
- Face masks are recommended, but not mandatory
- Respect others wishes for social distancing
- Try to arrive no more than five minutes before your appointment time, where possible
- Avoid attending for routine care when you have COVID
- Tell us if you have COVID symptoms or are COVID positive when you have an appointment
That way we can keep all patients safe - including those who cannot be vaccinated or whose immune systems are compromised/weak.

Appointments are being delivered face-to-face, online and over the telephone. If you are asked to come into the surgery for a face-to-face appointment, we recommend wearing a face mask. Measures are in place to keep you safe from infection during your visit to the surgery.

Further clarity can be obtained by calling the practice on 01724 877744.

Welcome to West Common Lane Teaching Practice

West Common Lane Teaching Practice was first opened in July 1991 by Dr Chris Hall and Dr Andy Lee. Since then there have been many changes with the most notable one happening in February 2015 when the surgery took over the care of Dr Balasanthiran’s patients.

Dr Chris Hall retired in 2017 and Dr Andy Lee is no longer a Partner, but is still working at the Practice. The current Partners are Dr Francisco Terreros, Dr Kyle Hall and Dr Laura Thomas who became a partner on April 1st 2018.

Our list size is currently in excess of 8000 patients and continues to grow.
