About us

Practice Overview

Goodheart Surgery is situated in an area of deprivation; it sits on a large, mainly council estate to the East of the city. The practice is housed within a large Health Centre and is 1 of 8 separate GP businesses. The practice is well-established and has operated in this locality since 1976.

Dr Koshy Puthukkeril Korathu is the senior Partner.

The practice moved into a purpose built health centre in September 2012. The new health centre delivers a more comprehensive range of health & community services to meet the needs of its population.  The practice population is more than pleased with the new and updated facilities the health centre now provides and the patient environment has much improved, this is well reflected in the results of this year’s patient questionnaire.
