The practice area covers approximately 400 square miles of rural south Lincolnshire covering approximately 50 villages. We have two surgeries;
Caythorpe Surgery, 52 High Street, Caythorpe, Grantham, Lincs, NG32 3DN and
Ancaster Surgery, 12 Ermine Street, Ancaster, Grantham, Lincs, NG32 3NP.
Both surgeries offer a full range of medical services.
If patients move outside of the practice area they are required to register with a practice in the area where they have moved to.
A recent government initiative allows practices to accept patients living beyond the defined practice boundaries but for home visits to be provided, by specific arrangement with NHS England, by a different practice. The Caythorpe & Ancaster Practice has however decided that we are not able to engage with this scheme as we feel that to do so would dilute, and potentially compromise the care that we provide to our registered patients living within the present practice boundary.
All patients are registered at Ancaster Surgery, the practice HQ. For geographical reasons patients living in the Caythorpe area tend to consult at Caythorpe Surgery and patients living in the Ancaster area at Ancaster Surgery. As our clinical records are stored on the practice IT system and are accessible on both sites of the practice there is the option of consulting at either site of the practice.
