DHC GP Federation comprises the Primary Care Networks of Dorking, South Tandridge & Redhill Phoenix. Together we serve a population of around 100,000. Our collective strength allows us to develop a wide range of high quality services designed to meet the needs of local people:

i) Improved Access Services to provide appointments at the weekend and in the evening with a GP or nurse
