South Woodham Ferrers Medical Facilities

The number of GP Practices in South Woodham Ferrers has shrunk over the last few years due to decisions made at a higher level. The plan is to house the remaining surgeries in a new centralised medical centre that will be built adjacent to the new supermarket on Burnham Road, opposite the entrance to Hullbridge Road, on the site of the former Crouch Vale Garden centre.

Amalgamation of the surgeries will lead to greater efficiency and lower costs since resources can be shared. Appointments can be made online via a mobile phone using an App called MyGp. Repeat prescriptions can also be requested.

At the present time the medical facilities in South Woodham Ferrers are:
