About our 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 has since retired but Dr Andy Lee is still a partner with 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.
The practice is in the process of switching patients whose medical condition is described as stable by the GP to repeat dispensing.
Repeat dispensing is a new way of getting your medicines without having to ask the GP for a prescription each time.
