16 December: Dr Andre Beattie's plans have changed and he will not be moving to Australia at the end of December. We are delighted to report that he will remain a Partner in the Practice and Dr Vishal Sagar will still be joining as a Partner from 1st February as planned
The practice comprises a purpose-built surgery in Dorking town centre and a dispensing surgery at the top of Box Hill.
The practice was first established in the 1930’s and was based in The Old House, South Street. Dr Pip Young joined Dr Bale in 1981, swiftly followed by Dr Giles Guthrie in 1982 when Dr Ian Clarke retired. Dr Guthrie’s practice at Hillside Cottage, Boxhill (which he took over from his father) joined with The Old House and so New House Surgery was founded in 1984. When Dr Young retired in 2011, the practice became known as Dorking Medical Practice.
