Welcome to Harris Memorial Surgery
Based in Illogan and Lanner, Harris Memorial Surgery serves a large catchment area spanning from Portreath to Ponsanooth and Hayle to Mount Hawke. It is part of the North Kerrier East Primary Care Network (PCN).
Practice Manager Debbie Holborn leads the experienced team and supports four regular doctors, an eldercare matron, nurses and healthcare assistants, as well as a physiotherapist, pharmacist and social prescriber who are shared with the PCN. The Surgery constantly strives to deliver the best possible service and aims to treat its patients promptly, courteously and with complete confidentiality.
Routine GP services are supplemented by clinics for family planning, joint injections, physiotherapy, minor operations and social prescribing as well as midwife clinics.
The Surgery also dispenses medication from both its Lanner and Illogan branches for patients living more than a mile from a pharmacy and can offer delivery.
New patients registrations are always welcome.

Summary Care Records
Every NHS patient has a Summary Care Record (SCR) which contains your contact details and information about your medicines and allergies. With your permission, it can be accessed by NHS staff in A&E departments, GP surgeries, hospital wards and other NHS organisations to improve the quality and safety of your care.
Since the COVID-19 pandemic, NHS Digital is also sharing Additional Information in your SCR, which includes:
- significant medical history (past and present)
- reason for medication
- anticipatory care information (such as information about the management of long term conditions)
- end of life care information
More information about the Summary Care Record is available on the NHS Digital website.
