Welcome to Townhill Medical Practice


We are a four partner practice that strives to provide high quality medical care to patients from Caterham, Chaldon and some neighbouring areas. We offer a personal approach to healthcare from purpose-built premises and all staff are committed to improving the service we provide to you. Our doctors, nurses and the supporting team will be pleased to welcome you as patients to our practice.


We are very proud to have served our local community for over three decades. As well as providing a wide range of general practice services for the local population, we have also been a training practice for many years, supporting the professional development of generations of future GPs.


We are one of the centres within East Surrey CCG for local GPs referring their patients for special cardiac investigations.


Wheelchair access for the disabled is provided throughout the building.


This website has been designed to tell you about the practice and the services we offer.


Modality Partnership

NHS services continue to be under pressure and General Practice is at the forefront of providing NHS care. We need to tackle the present challenges facing us to meet patient needs and address issues in resourcing such as staff retention.


As of the 1st January 2018, Partners at Townhill to merged with Birchwood and Smallfield Medical Practices as a Modality Partnership. We share the same ethos and vision for the future of patient care and GP led services in the East Surrey locality and believe we can build a more robust and dynamic primary care organisation through the process of this merger.


Modality is a GP partnership, originally founded in Birmingham and now operates nationally. We strongly believe that being part of a larger super-partnership makes our practice more stable and resilient for the future. It enables us to provide better patient care with the advantages of working at scale and collaboratively to pool resources & share best practice.


We can only begin to make these changes by working as a larger group of practices. We believe that working together we can harness the power of our talented teams to make healthcare across East Surrey excellent.
