Welcome to Baddow Village Surgery
The doctors and staff at Baddow Village Surgery in Great Baddow are proud to offer the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare. We run many clinics for the management of chronic diseases such as asthma, diabetes and COPD. We also offer a wide variety of other medical services including antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and NHS Health Checks.
The Practice is committed to protecting Children and Vulnerable Adults and we will make their welfare our highest priority. Where additional support is necessary this will include working with other agencies. If you have any concerns about a child or Vulnerable adult please speak to your GP or Practice Nurse.
Baddow Village Surgery is a large modern practice based in the heart of Great Baddow. We have eight doctors and an excellent support team. The surgery also has a dispensary which dispenses medicines to eligible patients.
In addition to everything you need to know about the practice you will also find a wealth of health-related information in the Further Information and Your Health sections on the right-hand side of this page.
Patient Reference Group meeting - Tuesday 12 February at 6:30pm
All patients are invited to the next PRG meeting which is being held on Tuesday 12 February from 6:30 pm at the surgery. Please aim to arrive at 6:20pm for a 6:30 start.
The purpose of the Patient Reference Group is to give the surgery’s patients the opportunity to make positive suggestions about the practice and be an advocate for patient preferences when appropriate. The PRG also organises health information events and members help to raise patient awareness about the services the Practice offers.
Please come along and find out about what the PRG has been doing and tell us what YOU want from the PRG and YOUR surgery in the future.
Your input is important.

Flu Vaccinations 2018/2019
If you choose to attend the surgery for your flu jab, you will be vaccinated in a properly equipped consulting room or treatment room by a qualified member of our Nursing or GP Team; who will have access to your medical records and are properly equipped for emergencies.
You will also be supporting the practice and help to ensure that resources are not removed from General Practice. Please be assured that having your flu vaccination elsewhere does not 'help' the Surgery.
We do not have any further flu clinics so please call the surgery to book an appointment with an HCA or nurse.
Please see the eligibility criteria for 'at risk' patients by clicking on Clinics and Services on the tab at the top of this page then choosing Flu Vaccinations
If you have an appointment booked with a clinician (other than a phlebotomist for a blood test) they will be able to vaccinate you during your appointment so please request this to save you making another appointment.
If you wish to decline the vaccination, please contact the surgery and we will update your record.
