Our History
In the 1950’s Dr Tom Foot set up a single-handed practice in Northolt, holding
surgeries in various premises around the local area. In the mid 1950’s he built a family house and a surgery at 45 Doncaster Drive. Dr Foot was a well respected GP who pioneered GP training in the district, a practice followed by his successors. Over the years nearly 30 GPs have been trained at The Medical Centre. The practice gradually expanded and various doctors over the years made a valued contribution to its growth. Dr Balachandran who joined the practice in 1990 took over as senior partner after the untimely death of Dr.J.A. Thakkar in 1993.
