Welcome to The Lodge Surgery
Lodge Surgery opened in 1987 as a brand new GP practice for the newly built and expanding Pewsham estate. The practice was originally housed in a portakabin-style unit until the current building was constructed in 1991. A large extension was added in 1997 and was originally rented out as private offices and later a Therapy Centre. It was refurbished in 2020 increasing the number of consulting rooms and adding a waiting room and administration room.
With patients' needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need.
We have a dedicated Covid-19 section with up to date information and guidance as well as links to local and national sites for support during lockdown.
We are open but we are working differently during the pandemic. Online appointment booking is not currently available but patients who ring the practice will receive a phone call back from an appropriate clinician, usually on the same day. If the clinician feels that a face to face appointment is needed, you will be offered one on the same day.
For advice and information on a range of medical conditions, local services and handy links please visit our Resource Hub.
The Lodge Surgery is a community based surgery that strives to put patient welfare and excellent service at the heart of all it does.
If you are ringing us to enquire about a Covid booster vaccine, please be aware that due to limited vaccine supplies, we are unable to book any further appointments at Rowden Surgery at this time.
Please ring 119 to make an appointment at an alternative venue. Please bear in mind that you will need to wait until 6 months after your second vaccination before having your booster.
If you are eligible for a flu vaccination you will be contacted in due course, we will be in contact either by text, telephone or letter. As such, could we kindly ask that patients refrain from calling the practice to enquire about a flu vaccination.

"What would have made your visit better?"
"It was all great, nothing to change. Seen on time, all staff really friendly, easy to park."

"Make it easier to get an appointment without receptionists trying to divert you to someone other than the doctor."
There have been huge changes in primary care and patients now have access to a range of specialists including physiotherapists, pharmacists, nurses and care co-ordinators. Seeing a doctor isn't always the best option. Receptionists ask you about why you are calling to ensure that you are given an appointment with the most appropriate person for your need - often this is on the same day. For more information please see our Primary Care Network page.
