New Premises

We are delighted to announce that after years of deliberation, discussion and uncertainty we are finally able to announce that the Strand Surgery will relocate to purpose built premises just a stones throw away across the road on the site of the former Lloyds Building.

The new premises will offer both patients and staff an up to date working environment.

It is anticipated that the move will happen early 2019. We intend to hold an open evening to discuss the new building in due course. A special thank you must go to Sir Peter Bottomley and the PPG members, all of whom worked tirelessly to promote the need for relocation.

Watch this space for more details. 

Welcome to the website of The Strand Medical Group

Based in Goring-by-Sea, we are a 6 Doctor strong GP Practice offering GP and Nurse consultations and a variety of other primary health care services.

CQC Inspection

In February 2017 the surgery hosted a CQC visit. During the inspection the CQC interviewed staff, Doctors, Nurses and patients in-order to access the care we provide.

We are delighted to announce the overall outcome the surgery received was ‘GOOD’.

We will continue to work hard to ensure every patient receives the care that they need in a timely and effective manner.

Accessible Information Standard

The practice is part of the NHS England campaign to make our communications more accessible to our patients.  If you need our communications with you to be in a different format, please get in touch with the practice and we will do our very best to satisfy your needs.

The Accessible Information Standard aims to ensure that people who have a disability or sensory loss receive information that they can access and understand, for example in large print, braille or via email, and professional communication support if they need it, for example from a British Sign Language interpreter. More specifically, that information provided by the Strand is available in whatever method is required by our patients.

Further information can be obtained by reading this leaflet (PDF)

Should you have any communication needs, or know of a patient who needs support, please let the practice know and we will look to assist, whether that is by providing information in large print or putting a patient in touch with British Sign Language (BSL), an interpreter, or sending information via email or braille.

Further information can be obtained on the NHS website www.england.nhs.uk/accessibleinfo

Charities including Action on Hearing Loss, CHANGE, Sense and the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) will also be able to provide further support.

Please do not hesitate to contact the practice if you have any questions.

Patient Participation Group

Upcoming events - PPG Awareness Week, 4-9 June 2018

The Strand PPG Newsletter - November 2017

Named Accountable GP

The Practice now provides every patient with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to you. This does not prevent you from seeing any GP in the Practice as you currently do. Please do bear in mind that your named Doctor will not always be available to see or speak to you, you may be seen by or speak to an alternative Doctor.

 If you would like to know the name of your accountable GP, please ask at the Reception desk or alternatively call the surgery on 01903 243351 in afternoon hours only.

Friends and Family Feedback

We are actively encouraging our patients to participate in feedback of their care by the Practice.

Please take time to visit the iWantGreatCare website and leave your feedback. Thank You!

Important Information Regarding Your Data


Patient Data has now been uploaded to the Summary Care Record unless patients have specifically opted out of this scheme. Patients records are collected electronically via the GP2GP electronic system wherever possible when a patient registers with the Practice. Patients can already request prescriptions on line and make appointments on line, however, we will also be enabling in the future on line access to part of your medical record if you would like to view this. In the meantime, should you wish to view your medical record then this request needs to be put in writing to the practice manager and please note there will be a charge made for this. Feedback about the practice will also be available shortly on line but currently available on NHS choices or by email to the practice manager or forms available in reception at the practice.
