Hodgson Medical
The practice started as branch surgery of an old established practice in Peterborough in a Porta-cabin in February 1986 to the serve the then new development in the Northern part of Werrington. It was located across the road from The Dragon Pub, where the current Ash Park estate is. In July 1986 it was decided that Dr.Vijay Iyer run the practice as an independent single handed practice serving the local population. At the time just over one hundred patients were registered at the practice. 






The current surgery was planned and built as a purpose built surgery in about eighteen months.The practice moved to the premises in the Easter of 1989. The surgery was officially opened by Sir John Major, then Member of Parliament, on 26th May 1989. At the time the practice’s registered population was just over one thousand. At that time, the staff employed by the practice were a part time Practice Manager and two part-time receptionists.
