Welcome to Forest Gate Surgery
We are a group partnership of NHS GPs offering a full range of NHS Primary Care Services and we aim to offer you an accessible, high quality service.
This surgery website is used to supply all our patients with up to date news and information about our practice. We will keep it current with any developments or other details that we feel are relevant to you.
As well as a source of information about our practice, the staff and the services we provide, we hope you will use this website as a useful resource for other health-related information.
We would like to inform you that Dr Chris Newman has now retired from Forest Gate Surgery. We have appointed two part-time Doctors who will take over the care of Dr Newman’s patients. Dr Emily Edwards is already in post and has taken half of Dr Newman’s patient list. Dr Maha Ahmed will be joining the practice in September and will take the remainder of Dr Newman's patients on her list.
If you were previously a patient of Dr Newman and you are not registered with Dr Edwards, we will allocate you to another doctor until Dr Maha Ahmed arrives. If you would like to know the name of your temporary doctor please contact the surgery. I am sure that you will join us in thanking Dr Newman for his many years of support and guidance to both patients and the practice and wishing him a happy and healthy retirement.
If you would like to help others to enjoy the benefits of getting fitter and enjoying a healthier lifestyle in the outdoors then take a look at our Healthy Walks poster...
