An Introduction To The Hawthornden Surgery

This practice was founded by Dr Francis Gibbs in 1895 but he was to die at an early age in 1911. He was succeeded by Dr Selborne Bailey who was to remain with the practice from 1911 until 1968! In 1923 he amalgamated with the other practice in Bourne End; Dr Vaudrey Mercer joined the practice in 1934 and in 1943 Dr Bailey's son Alison entered the practice; Dr Mercer moved to Cookham in 1946. Dr Flanagan came as an assistant in 1954 and Dr Lloyd Parry joined as a partner in 1965 followed by Dr Fergusson in 1967. Dr Alison "Joe" Bailey retired from the practice in 1986, by which time he and his father had completed a total of 100 years of general practice. Sadly Dr Bailey died in November 1997. Dr Sarah Buxton joined as a partner in August 1992 and Dr Michael Wolfin in March 1996. He replaced Dr Lloyd Parry who retired in March 1996 after more than 30 years as a partner in this practice. Dr Tanveer Hussain joined the practice in January 1997 to be followed by Dr Peter Newman who joined the practice in May 2000 following the retirement in April 2000 of Dr Fergusson who had by then completed more than 32 years as a partner here. Our newest partner is Dr Sarah Abbas who joined us in February 2012 as a job-sharing partner with Dr Hussain.

We are dedicated to providing an effective primary care service to ensure that our patients receive the highest quality of medical care and attention within the National Health Service.

Our primary care team consists of the general practitioners supported by our two practice nurses, a healthcare assistant, two phlebotomists, plus a team of district nurses, school nurses, health visitors and a community midwife who are attached to the practice.

We are currently part of the Chiltern Clinical Commissioning Group.

We are also part of Bucks Primary Care Collaborative, BPCC, which is an association of 34 local GP practices, working together to improve healthcare services for our 320,000 patients. Do please visit the BPCC website at

Disabled Access:

Both the main and branch surgeries can accommodate wheelchairs; patients who are unable to manage the stairs may be seen downstairs at the Hawthornden surgery.

Duty Chemists

Information about duty chemists can be obtained from the Bucks Free Press or the Maidenhead Advertiser.

NHS 111

NHS 111 is a free 24-hour helpline, staffed by a team of highly trained advisers, supported by experienced nurses, who will assess you, provide advice and direct you to the local service that can help you best.

Patient Confidentiality & Data Protection

We ask you for personal information so that you can receive the most appropriate care and treatment. This information is recorded on computer and we are registered under the Data Protection Act. The practice will ensure that patient confidentiality is maintained at all times by all members of the practice team. However, for the effective functioning of a multi-disciplinary team it is sometimes necessary that medical information about you is shared between members of the practice team.

Freedom of Information - Publication Scheme

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 obliges the practice to produce a Publication Scheme. A Publication Scheme is a guide to the ‘classes’ of information the practice intends to routinely make available.

This scheme is available from reception.

NHS Data Sharing Schemes

There are two schemes, the summary care record where details of patient medication and allergies can be made available to hospitals and other NHS health providers in an emergency and the programme where anonymized data is gathered by NHS England to identify trends and patterns in healthcare across the country. If you do not wish for your data to be shared in this way you need to opt out by completing a form or making a written request to the surgery.


The practice would like to thank the various advertisers who have helped to produce this Website. However, it must be pointed out that the accuracy of any statements cannot be warranted, nor any products or services advertised, be guaranteed or endorsed.
