The Practice has six Partners consisting of the partnership of Drs Sastry, Richards, Hamp, Popova, McGinley and Speakman. The Practice is situated on the south side of Ferndown Medical Centre at the end of St Mary’s Road. The six partners combine a traditionalist view of medicine with modern progressive ideas.

To view your doctor’s surgery hours, qualifications, areas of expertise and other interesting information please see below. All the Doctors attend frequent updating meetings and are appraised each year. This process will be part of a 5 year re-validation program.The practice has been a training practice since 1979.

The Practice is proud to offer a “Personal List” system- this means that you are registered with an individual GP rather than being seen by whichever doctor is in the Practice at the time. The Partners firmly believe that this system, which has run in General Practice for many years, provides you with a doctor who knows you and your history much better than having to explain your history each time. Further, as we aim to keep family members under the same GP care, this means that your family doctor really is your family’s doctor. You will be allocated to your GP when you join the practice and you remain under their care. In the event of an emergency, or your GP being on leave, you may see another doctor at the Practice, otherwise you will see the GP you are registered with.

All of our GPs are fully trained and qualified to deal with medical issues regardless of gender or identity.
