South Woodham Ferrers Medical Facilities

The number of GP Practices in South Woodham Ferrers has shrunk over the last few years due to decisions made at a higher level. The plan is to house the remaining surgeries in a new centralised medical centre that will be built adjacent to the new supermarket on Burnham Road, opposite the entrance to Hullbridge Road, on the site of the Crouch Vale Garden centre, which is no longer trading.

At the present time the medical facilities in South Woodham Ferrers are:
