Welcome to Lechlade Medical Centre
It is with extreme sadness that we announce the death of Dr Ian Thomson who died on Friday 22nd January at home. The thoughts of everyone in the surgery are with his family at this difficult time.
There is a book of condolence for patients at the reception desk.
We are organising a collection for Cancer Research UK in memory of Dr Thomson. Please ask Reception for details.

At Lechlade surgery the doctors and nurses take pride in offering the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare. We run many clinics for chronic disease care and offer a wide variety of other medical services such as antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups.
The Practice has been fully computerised since the end of 1999. We are linked electronically for the receipt of test results and patient registrations. Correspondence is scanned and recorded on patient records. The “Choose & Book” internet-based referral system has been in use since September 2006. We are registered under the Data Protection Act.
We hope all these developments will increase our efficiency, which in turn means we can help you more effectively. The extension to the Surgery building was completed in 1997 and has provided space and equipment to continue developing services at least during the next decade. We aim to provide the most up-to-date services needed in a rural community and ideas on improving these are always welcome.
The Practice premises have suitable access for all disabled patients.
As a rural Practice, travelling to hospital is sometimes difficult, particularly in an emergency; we have equipment and facilities to help you. We are supported in these endeavours by the Fairford Hospital League of Friends and a voluntary car service for those with no transport or sufficient funds (this is arranged by discussion with the doctor.)
