The medical practice in Burham has been in existence since 1973 and on the present site in the purpose-built Phoenix Surgery since 1982.  Throughout this time the list size has grown steadily from around 1200 patients to its current size of almost 4300 (which also includes patients living in Eccles, Wouldham, Blue Bell Hill and Sandling).  This increase led to the surgery undergoing a major extension in 1986.  The services provided include general medical services, maternity services, contraception, child health and minor surgery.  Because of our rural setting we dispense to over 95% of our patients and hence the Dispensary forms an important part of the practice.

The practice has three GPs: Dr Pile,  Dr Van Sloun and Dr Thom.

The surgery also has 3 practice nurses.

Baby Clinics are held every 1st and 3rd Tuesday in the month.  Minor ops are also carried out on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday in the month.

There is one evening surgery a week (6.30pm till 8.30pm, held on either Monday, Wednesday or Thursday.

Surgery opening hours are:

Monday              8.30am 5.00 pm
