Welcome to the Quay Lane Surgery Website
Quay Lane doctors' surgery in St Germans provides the highest quality healthcare to patients in the Cornwall area. Our doctors, nurses and all our other staff are dedicated to offering a professional service and this surgery website will help us to keep all our patients up to date with news and information about our practice.
As well as a source of information about our practice, the staff and the services we provide, we hope you will use this website as a useful resource for other health-related information. Please have a look around and do send us some feedback if you like. We can use your ideas to improve our online services and further develop the content of this site.

We are currently recruiting for a Receptionist, a temp Receptionist/Dispensary Assistant and a Long Term Conditions Nurse - see Job Vacancy section on the right for details.
In January 2019 we introduced active signposting to Quay Lane Surgery.
This new process sees the Receptionist asking more questions of patients at the point of booking appointments to enable them to make the most appropriate appointment with the right member of clinical staff depending on the patient’s condition.
It is important for patients to understand that they are not being nosy and the information being asked for is very much in their best interests and to ensure they receive the most appropriate and efficient service possible.

Improving Access to General Practice
We are participating in a national incentive to offer evening and weekend appointments to make it easier for you to see a doctor, nurse or other healthcare professional at a time more convenient to you between 6.30pm – 8pm Monday to Friday and at the various hours at the weekend. See opening hours by following the appointments tab at the top left of the page for further information about this scheme.
