Live within boundary area?

The practice will be pleased to register you as a patient if you live within our practice area. We regret we are unable to accept patients who do not live within this defined area.

The area includes most of the City of Salisbury but not villages or other areas to the south of the rivers or the area west of Queen Alexandra Rd. To the North and East we accept patients from Stratford-sub-Castle, Old Sarum, Ford, The Winterbournes, Porton, The Winterslows, Lopcombe Corner, Pitton and Farley, The Grimsteads, Whaddon, Alderbury and Laverstock.

Only in exceptional circumstances such as when a person moves into the household of a family who are already registered with this practice will we consider accepting new patients who live outside our defined Practice Area and this is solely at the discretion of the partnership.
