About Us

The practice history dates back to the beginning of the 20th century when one of the former senior partners followed a family tradition of doctoring in Horley. As the growth of Horley led to an increased list of patients, so too did the number of doctors.

We transferred into the Kings Road surgery in 1976 and in May 2005, after many years of planning, moved into the current premises known as Birchwood Medical practice.

Since 2009, Dr Elango Vijaykumar is the senior partner of the practice.

Birchwood Medical practice is one of the 17 practices in the East Surrey Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG).

Our Vision

To be recognised as a centre of excellence that provides the highest quality of NHS care, which is equitable, family orientated and evidence based.

Our Mission

We will consistently strive to provide comprehensive health care that fully reflects and addresses the needs of the community we serve. Key to this will be evidence based patient centred care.

Respect and courtesy towards our patients and their carers will be a hallmark of our efforts. We will at all times respond adequately and appropriately to the needs of our patients, within the scope of the NHS.

We will continue to provide the highest standards in teaching and training to future generations of health care professionals.
