The Locking Hill Practice is derived from two single-handed practices: one based in Uplands and the other at the 'Top of the Town'.
The doctor for Uplands in the 1920 - 1930s was Dr Whitley. His successor in the late 1930s was Dr Royal who retired in December 1962 and was succeeded at that time by Dr Lamb.
Dr Newton joined his practice in the 1930s and was based at The Chestnuts, Hollow Lane.
At the end of 1963 the two practices joined in partnership but continued to work from separate premises, Dr Newton at The Chestnuts and Dr Lamb at a purpose-built surgery attached to Brookfield House, Lansdown. After a couple of years it was decided to close the surgery at Hollow Lane and all practice work was conducted from Brookfield House. During that time Drs Lamb and Newton were joined by Dr Bamford and later by Dr J L Dod.
In 1972 the practice moved to the Health Centre at Beeches Green, being joined by Dr Gillian Dod and, on the retirement of Dr Newton, by Dr Voss.
increasing numbers of patients and extreme pressure on available space it was
decided to move out of the Health Centre into the purpose-built Locking Hill Surgery
