Welcome to the Village Health Group
Village Health Group was established in 2020 from the merger of two existing GP surgeries, East Leake Medical Group (ELM Group) and Keyworth Medical Practice.
Originally, ELM Group started as a small rural practice ran single-handedly by a doctor in Costock. After the war, the population of East Leake village expanded and the practice moved to East Leake. In 1968 East Leake Health Centre opened and it was the first purpose built health centre in Nottinghamshire. Later, Sutton Bonington Surgery and Church House Surgery in Ruddington became part of the practice, which was renamed East Leake Medical Group.
Keyworth Medical Practice started out as two individual GPs working from their homes in Keyworth and Tollerton. Keyworth Health Centre was opened in 1970 and was later extended in 1995. The surgery relocated to the newly built Keyworth Primary Care Centre in 2007.
Village Health Group is an active member of the Rushcliffe Primary Care Network.
