Widdrington Surgery was established 1938 by Dr Danny O’Driscoll.
Dr Finnbarr O’Driscoll took over from his father and was the village doctor for more than 30 years.

The surgery is a two partner practice - a husband and wife team - Dr Waite who joined in 2001 and Dr Lees who joined in 2005 when Dr O’Driscoll retired.

We are a Dispensing Practice with an attached Pharmacy. This means that all our patients are able to pick up their medication from the surgery if they wish.

The surgery benefits from a dentist - Jason Old, and an Optician - Paul Boyle of C4 Sightcare, who both have weekly surgeries.

Recently we have introduced a number of new services to the practice, including Physiotherapy, Audiology, Counselling and Phlebotomy.

Widdrington Surgery

Widdrington Surgery is a ‘teaching practice’.  We train medical and nursing students as well as doctors who wish to become GPs. 

We aim to treat all our patients promptly, courteously and in complete confidence. We feel it is important you are aware who you are speaking to, so our staff wear name badges and will identify themselves on the telephone.
