Welcome to Woodside Surgery
We are a friendly, family-oriented general practice based in the historic East Cleveland town of Loftus.
We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us.
Dear Patients we apologise and ask you to bear with us if it appears to be a bit cooler than normal in the practice. Our central heating is not working at the moment and we are waiting on it being repaired. We do have heaters within the practice however we appreciate they will not heat everywhere. We will keep this page updated and have information in the waiting room to keep you informed of progress.

Patient Online Services
Our online services should be up and running as usual. If you have any problems please contact the surgery to let us know.
Our dedicated team are here to treat those minor ailments that occur as well as providing specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues. The technology also means you can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription or cancel an appointment.
Partners in Care
Once registered, patients and healthcare professionals work together to ensure the most appropriate care is provided. This partnership philosophy extends even further and our active patient group exists to make sure that patient needs and the practice offering are always heading in the same direction.
Friends and Family Test
If you have recently used our services, please feel free to complete this short survey by clicking the "Friend and Family Survey" link on the right hand side of this page. This Survey is anonymous, and will help us to provide continually improving services based on your feedback. Many Thanks.
NHS England require that the net earnings of doctors engaged in the practice is publicised, and the required disclosure is shown below. However it should be noted that the prescribed method for calculating earnings is potentially misleading because it takes no account of how much time doctors spend working in the practice, and should not be used to form any judgement about GP earnings, nor to make any comparison with any other practice.
All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (e.g. average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.
The average pay for GPs working in this practice in the last full financial year was £117,550 before Tax and National insurance. This is for two full time GPs, one part time GP and zero locum GPs who worked in the practice for more than six months.
