About Hillcrest Surgery

Hillcrest Surgery is based in Acton, W3 and has been established since the early 20thCentury.  There are currently 2 partners, one male (Dr Tailor) and one female (Dr Dhatt).

The practice has been a teaching practice for medical students since 1972 and a training practice since 1997. In 2008 the surgery became a Development and Research Practice under an Ealing PCT initiative and successfully bid for monies to support a non-research enquiry in to end of life care in nursing homes.  The Practice has also taken part in a number of large research projects.

Hillcrest Surgery aims to provide a high quality of care to all our patients to the best of our ability and resources available.  We aim to respect patient privacy, confidentiality, dignity and cultural beliefs. We have always had strong links with health policy decisions and play an active role in the work Ealing Clinical Commissioning Group.  Dr Tailor is an elected Board Member.


We have ramp and wide doors for wheelchair access, and most facilities are available on the ground floor. We are investigating the possibility of induction loop for hearing aids. We have a small operating theatre for minor surgery. If you are unable to climb stairs please let the receptionist know when booking any appointments.
