Welcome to The Abingdon Surgery

The Abingdon Surgery is an established doctors surgery based in Abingdon. We employ over 30 practice staff. All patients are allocated a named GP.

Over the next five years, we will seek to continue to react well to demands that are placed upon us and will continue the very successful policy of personal lists, but will also seek to develop into a proactively changing organisation that encourages innovation and change in all aspects of patient care. With a particular emphasis on ensuring the best possible care for the elderly, those with multiple medical problems, and those who are particularly vulnerable.
