Welcome to Gladstone Street Surgery

Our history

In January 1978, Dr Richard Quirke opened the doors of Gladstone Street Surgery. A single handed GP for many years, he was joined in 2000 by Dr Mike Quirke and a short time later by Dr Tara Dillon. The range of services at GSS expanded over the years and other GP assistants have worked with us through this time. For a number of years now GSS has been a GP training practice attached to the South Eastern GP Training programme. Dr Richard retired in 2016.

Our ethos

This is a modern GP practice offering a complete range of services. Through our doctors and our practice nurses we offer illness and disease management as well as a large range of screening tests and therapeutic procedures. General Practice has evolved over the decades from an illness-based service to one in which health promotion and wellbeing are a core principle of healthcare. All current therapies and procedures are carried out at GSS and referral made to appropriate hospital specialists where necessary.
