The Surgery


Welcome to The Surgery, Silton

This is a dispensing Practice on the outskirts of Bourton and Zeals. Although in Dorset, it is within the administrative boundary of Wiltshire CCG and the majority of our patients attend Salisbury District Hospital or Shaftesbury Memorial Hospital if they need to be seen by specialists.

If you wish to see the Doctor or Practice Nurse please phone the receptionist on 01747 840226. You will be booked for a telephone consultation with a GP who will assess if you need to be examined.  If you need to be seen you will.  Some issues can be dealt with over the phone which is safer for you and the surgery staff.

Practice Nurses are not carrying out ear syringing or spirometry’s during Covid19 as these are aerosol generating procedures and carry a high risk of infection.  Some reviews and stop smoking consultations can be carried out over the phone to.  Call 01747 840226 and ask to be booked for a telephone appointment with a practice nurse informing the receptionist of the reason for the appointment. Our Practice Nurses are still doing a large number of consultations for Blood Tests, Dressings, Cervical Smears, some reviews etc.

Although the GP’s are speaking to patients via the phone in the first instance you may be reassured that you can see a Doctor if you need to. Full appointment details…
