The practice was established in 1830 at the Corner House in the Market Place in Chippenham and approaching 200 years later seven doctors work in partnership from the purpose-built premises forming Rowden Medical Partnership.

Rowden Surgery lies adjacent to Chippenham Community Hospital and provides an attractive and functional environment for patients and staff. All facilities for our patients are at ground level with easy access, particularly benefiting the elderly, infirm, those in wheelchairs and those with pushchairs.

At Rowden Surgery, we have greatly valued the doctor/patient relationship and we have fought very hard to maintain our "personal list" system.  This means that every patient has a named doctor from the moment of registration who is responsible for co-ordinating their care.  We believe that continuity of doctor is more important than continuity of record and that delivering a high quality personal consultation remains the cornerstone of modern day general practice.
