The Court House in Sutton was built in the 1940s and at that time it was said to be the largest Court House outside London. The building ceased to be used as a Court House in 1986 and re-opened as a Primary Care Surgery in 1997.
Sutton GP Services
The Old Court House Surgery is a member of Sutton GP Services Limited (SGPS) a GP Federation set up to provide quality healthcare for the residents in Sutton.
The organisation was formed in February 2015, in response to the growing need for change and collaborative working within General Practice.
SGPS is made up of 24 local practices who are passionate about providing robust healthcare for the population of Sutton.
The key aim of SGPS is to bring healthcare services closer to patient’s homes, and has managed to achieve this, by working very closely with all its partners in Sutton and its surroundings and are therefore available to all patients registered with a GP practice in Sutton.
Most of the services we provide, are commissioned by our key partner Sutton Clinical Commissioning Group (SCCG), making it eligible to all patients registered with a GP practice in Sutton.
