Practice Information

We are a rural practice situated in the heart of the village of Kirkoswald in the beautiful Eden Valley. Our traditional sandstone building has recently been extended, on stilts over the Raven Beck, which has enabled us to provide our patients with the best possible care we can

We offer a full general practice and run specialist clinics. At Kirkoswald, we aim to treat all our patients promptly, courteously and in complete confidence. This information is for both existing patients and those considering registering with us. It tells you about our services, how to access them and some general information about how our practice operates.

If you live in our practice area and would like to register with us, please complete our registration forms; online or from reception.

If a patient wishes to see a particular doctor we will do our best to accommodate that wish, but where there is limited appointment availability, it may be more appropriate to see the next available clinician. You will be able to say which particular doctor you would prefer to see, we will accommodate that request, but where there is limited appointment availability, it may be more appropriate to see the next available clinician. However, you will be registering with the practice rather than an individual GP

Welcome to Kirkoswald Surgery website where you will find lots of useful information about your local Practice.


Please take time to browse and see the services that we offer. However, before you do, could we ask that you make a note of a couple of points that would be really appreciated in respect of our Dispensary. Firstly, could we ask that you give us at least 2 full working days notification to allow us to prepare all medications and secondly please note that prescriptions are currently £9.65 per item. The good news is, that for your convenience, we are now able to take card payments. However, if you prefer to pay by cash, it would be really helpful if you could have the correct change available.


Thank you for your cooperation.
