welcome to Westside Surgery

Westside Surgery in Boston aims to provide the highest quality primary health care to patients and their families in the area. Our four doctors (Dr Simon Lowe, Dr Afshan Butt, Dr Adeel Asim & Dr James Thompson), three practice nurses, two health care support workers and all our other staff are dedicated to offering a professional and friendly service. 

We have plenty of free parking and all our clinical areas are fully accessible by wheelchair or mobility scooter.  There is a pharmacy next door to the surgery and a late opening one in the nearby Asda.  It is easy to register with us - just see the 'new patients' section.

We offer appointments throughout the day from 0800hrs Monday to Friday with extended opening until 2000hrs on Mondays, Tuesdays and some Thursdays.  Any patient with a genuine medical emergency will have a consultation with a GP on the same day. 

Please have a good look around this website where we hope you will find all the information you need about us.

If you need urgent medical care when we are closed, please call the Lincolnshire Out of Hours Service on 111.
