Welcome to Albany House Surgery
We at Albany House Surgery are a traditional family general practice, offering a friendly and personal medical service to our patients. Each doctor has a special interest, which includes diabetes, asthma, skin disease, family planning and child health, but at the same time a team approach is applied where we pool our knowledge, expertise and resources.
The practice is located in the City Centre and covers an area of approximately three miles radius from the Worcester Cross including Hindlip, Kempsey, North Claines, Norton, Spetchley, St Peter the Great and Whittington. Our surgery premises are easy for patients to find their way around and appropriate to the needs of users including the disabled.
As well as a source of information about our practice, the staff and the services we provide, we hope you will use this website as a useful resource for other health-related information. Please have a look around and do send us some feedback if you like. We can use your ideas to improve our online services and further develop the content of this site.
We have received feedback regarding patient parking. Albany House is a GRADE 2 listed building, therefore only allowed to have certain amount of parking spaces. Following the patient feedback we have appealed to the council on 2 occasions to change the garden area into parking. These applications unfortunately have been turned down due to a preservation order on the Trees. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. We welcome your feedback.
Please note, our online booking services has been temporarily suspended due to the Coronavirus.

Helping you prevent heart disease, stroke, diabetes and kidney disease
Free NHS Health Checks are available to patients with the practice nurse here at the surgery for patients aged 40-74. If you are currently being seen annually for any Chronic disease i.e. Diabetes, Asthma, High Blood Pressure, COPD or Cardiovascular Disease you will not need a health check as you are already being monitored for risks being identified through this health check appointment.
Having this done at your own GP Surgery ensures accessibility to past medical history and previous tests, and confidence that your tests will be received back to the surgery in a matter of days and your results will be followed up accordingly by your own doctor and action taken to help you prevent long term future health problems.
