Tinkers Lane Surgery was purpose-built in 1957 (one of the first in the UK), and has been much extended and improved since then. A major extension and refurbishment project was undertaken in 2003.

Dr Peter Fudge came to Wootton Bassett way back in 1990!  Dr Vardan Tadevosyan joined the practice in 2013 as a salaried GP and went on to join the partnership on 1st June 2015.  More recently,  Dr Siu Fan, Dr Kenny Gilroy and Dr Charlotte Wilson joined us in 2017.

Practice Management

Charlotte Gorman

The Practice Manager is responsible for the 'business' of primary care and for administrative, financial, patient services, personnel and training issues within the practice. She has a keen interest in 'customer services' and would positively welcome your views and suggestions. She can be contacted by telephone or via the receptionists.


The secretaries deal with all correspondence leaving the practice, in particular the typing of patient referral letters to hospital. If you have a question about a referral, please contact them.


These staff, together with our reception team leader, will assist you in making routine (and sometimes more urgent) appointments to see a doctor or nurse, process repeat prescriptions, answer queries on an enormous range of topics, and generally offer help and advice on the services we provide. It is a legal requirement that patients’ records are maintained securely and confidentially at all times by all staff, so please discuss any health worries you may have in the knowledge that our staff will use their utmost discretion. If you are willing to provide them with details relative to your query, they will be much better placed to help you use our range of services.

We always try to be courteous and cheerful, and provide the flexibility of service you are looking for. If occasionally we fail to meet your needs, please bear with us!
