It was my first time in Wellback GP and I must say that I am very impressed with the service provided by Shivani. She spent enough time to understand my concern and took actions immediately. Lucky to have this GP near by.

I have been a patient of this practice for over 20 years before the expansion and new build. In this time what I have noticed is although the patient /doctor time has been shortened the quality of care is still excellent. There are various excellent doctors on site my preferred is Dr.khan due to his attention to details as well as his expertise. Nothing seems to much for him. Referrals are made if necessary. My only complaint in the past was about front desk . This was addressed for that reason I will still give 5 stars . Face to face appointment are available as well as telephone consultations They practice is keen for the on line system to be used its not that difficult to navigate although I have at times telephoned in for an appointment be prepared to wait as it can get busy if you'd rather use this method of appointment booking . A variety of services are available on site blood draw family planning etc. All in all a very pleasant place to be attended to . New patients are welcome to register .

The practice is at the forefront of technological developments with the aim of improving the patient journey and to that end we have a variety of options to book appointments or communicate with the practice. Appointments can be requested online around the clock 24/7 (yes you can request an appointment online at midnight) or via our receptionists Monday – Friday between 08:00 – 18:30 Patients can request regular medication both online, by post or in person and they can also message the practice securely online. 


I had to find time for writing this review. I honestly haven’t met a doctor like Dr Nizar Merali. He is an amazing doctor with compassion and consideration. Talking to him feels you are half cured there and then. I would highly recommend.


Excellent customer patient care service provided by one of receptionist GiUsella at Welbeck Road Surgery for going that extra mile.

We offer a range of services beyond the scope of standard general practice which include extensive family planning services such as the fitting of coils and implant devices, joint injections, travel advice and vaccinations including Yellow Fever (some of which incur a charge as they are not covered by the NHS). We also offer a range of private medical services such as general medical examinations, examinations on behalf of insurance companies, at the request of solicitors and for the statutory needs of the DVLA or other bodies. 

The core service of offering our patients an accessible service with an appropriate clinician in a timely manner for a presenting medical complaint is at the heart of our service to you. The practice also provides a full range of nursing services including cervical screening, wound dressings, ear syringing and childhood and travel immunisations.
