Ardleigh is a large village approximately 3 miles north of the historic Roman town of Colchester and adjacent to Dedham Vale and 'Constable Country', a beautiful stretch of countryside which straddles the Essex/Suffolk border. The branch surgery is situated in the pretty village of Dedham, 2 miles further north.
The practice area extends over a predominantly rural part of north Essex and as well as Ardleigh includes the parishes of Langham, Dedham, Stratford St Mary, Manningtree, Mistley, Lawford, Great and Little Bromley and parts of Bradfield.
There has been a practice in Ardleigh for many years. The current building dates from 1974, but was extended in 1991 and again in 2007 to accommodate the growing practice. We provide services from both the main surgery and a branch surgery in Dedham. The practice cares for a patient list of around 7,100 patients.
We are a training practice, training both general practitioners and nursing students. Dr Cole is a GP trainer and Sister Harrison is a student nurse trainer. Dr Bettle has an interest in Cardiology and both Dr Cole and Dr Bettle perform minor surgery.
The practice dispenses to around 70% of our patients, and we have a well stocked dispensary with qualified dispensing staff, who can help you with your medication needs.
