About us

We are a large practice covering an extensive rural area and population of over 24,000 from three surgery sites in south-east Nottinghamshire. There are 9 partners in the Belvoir Health Group, practising from our surgeries in Cropwell Bishop, Cotgrave and Bingham.

You will be able to see and get to know the doctors and staff at the surgery that you attend. We have a full complement of ancillary staff at each location, both nursing and administrative, in order to make the practice run efficiently.

Our aim, with your co-operation, is to provide a high standard of care for all our patients.

The medical team is made up of the 9 Partners, 12 Salaried GPs, 10 Practice Nurses and 7 Health Care Assistants. The Practice Manager and Support Services Office are based at Cropwell Bishop Surgery, in premises newly built in 1993.

The Practice area covers 72 square miles, from villages such as Screveton in the North to Hickling and Kinoulton in the South; from Cotgrave in the West to Plungar and Stathern in the Vale of Belvoir to the East.

Cropwell Bishop is a farming village east of the A46, where over 5,000 patients are registered. About 3,000 patients live in the surrounding villages, some within Leicestershire.

Cotgrave is a larger ex-mining village west of the A46, serving over 7,000 patients. Nearly all the patients live in the village.

Bingham is a market town on the A52 Nottingham to Grantham road, having a patient population of over 10,000. Two-thirds of patients live in Bingham, and the rest come from the villages to the North and East


We are pleased to be able to dispense medication to almost all patients who are registered at Cropwell Bishop and certain patients living in villages surrounding Bingham. Our dispensary team work hard to provide an excellent, efficient service.

In order for us to dispense to you, you must live at least 1 mile from your nearest community pharmacy as the crow flies. Once your prescription has been processed please allow up to 2 full working days for your medication to be ready to collect from our dispensaries at Cropwell Bishop and Bingham. If we are able to get your medication ready any sooner then we may send you a text message.

We provide a home delivery service for dispensing patients who require it and are also able to provide dosette boxes for patients who may struggle to take their medication correctly. Please ask at the dispensary for more information.
