Welcome to West Common Lane Teaching Practice

West Common Lane Teaching Practice was first opened in July 1991 by Dr Chris Hall and Dr Andy Lee. Since then there have been many changes with the most notable one happening in February 2015 when the surgery took over the care of Dr Balasanthiran’s patients.

Dr Chris Hall retired in 2017 and Dr Andy Lee is no longer a Partner, but is still working at the Practice. The current Partners are Dr Francisco Terreros, Dr Kyle Hall and Dr Laura Thomas who became a partner on April 1st 2018.

Our list size is currently in excess of 8000 patients and continues to grow.
