Court Thorn – About Us


Court Thorn Surgery is a three GP partner training rural practice located midway between Low Hesket and High Hesket.

We aim to provide personal and highly professional care to all our patients and their families in the locality. The surgery is fully computerised and safeguards storage of confidential information, repeat prescribing and all test results.


The surgery is also fully dispensing in which you can obtain all repeat prescriptions including vaccinations and holiday travel information.

The term ‘Training Practice’ means that from time to time the Practice enables final year medical students, Foundation Year 2 (F2) doctors and General Practitioner Registrars to receive insights into care and general practice.  Please see Training Practice – What does this mean?
