We are a semi-rural dispensing practice in the centre of the Tendring peninsula. Thorpe-le-Soken is an old established village and a conservation area. Many of the buildings in the High Street are listed, with the parish church dating from the 11th century. The surgery has approximately 7500 patients, drawn from Thorpe-le-Soken and the surrounding villages of Weeley, Tendring, Little Clacton, Beaumont and Kirby.
The surgery is situated in a prominent location on the High Street, and it consists of a Grade II listed building with a modern, purpose built extension. The surgery was opened in this location in 1993. A branch surgery operates at Frinton Road, Kirby Cross to provide easier access to our services.
We have 2 GP partners, 3 salaried GPs, 2 advanced nurse practitioners, 2 emergency care practitioners, 2 practice nurses and 5 healthcare assistants (one of who is currently in nursing training), together with an administration team consisting of a practice manager, a finance controller, assistant practice manager, a dispensary manager, 9 receptionists and a medical secretary. All members of the practice have a role to play in patient care and we work as a team with each member trained in the skills required for their position. We aim to provide a high quality, friendly and efficient service. The practice is an equal opportunities employer.
We work closely with the community (district) nurses, community matrons, midwives and the local hospitals to ensure good patient care.
