Welcome to Lisson Grove & Woolwell Medical Centres

A Plymouth based General Practice that aims to provide a wide range of high quality accessible services that add value to your lives.

The Practice has two surgeries, WOOLWELL MEDICAL CENTRE and LISSON GROVE MEDICAL CENTRE. Both have been open since the 1990s.

The Practice is actively involved in teaching medical students from the Peninsula Medical School and is also a GP training Practice.


We have 4 Doctors in the Practice as well as a Nurse Practitioner, three Practice Nurses, two Health Care Assistants and associated Reception and Administrative staff. Our staff work across both surgeries and patients are welcome to attend either site.


We also manage an independent travel clinic in association with MASTA.


Both Surgeries have access for disabled service users. If you encounter any difficulties please let the receptionist know immediately.


Important information which you may wish to act upon.

This Practice is part of the local shared care initiative. This means that from 1st December 2015 it will be possible for you to give permission for other health care professionals to view your GP health record when they are providing you with care. Please see the "NHS information technology and sharing data " page opposite for further information.



We are committed to creating a fully inclusive and accessible service. We treat people with dignity and respect, promote equal opportunities and eliminate all forms of discrimination regardless of race, nationality, gender, disability, age, sexuality, religion or belief and family status. We welcome feedback on the way we operate. Please contact Penny Ridley, the Practice Manager with your comments in the first instance.
