About the British Surgery
The British Surgery of Corfu is a Primary Health Care Provider with four surgeries. One of our surgeries is located in Dassia resort (northeast Corfu), one is located in Paleokastritsa resort (northwest Corfu), one in Ypsos resort (northeast Corfu) and one in Gouvia (northeast Corfu).
The British Surgery has been created and run by British GP Dr John Yannopapas in 1996, who has been joined by his business partner Paediatric Consultant Dr S.Mihalitsis. Mrs Vicky Manatou secures the smooth running of the business in her role as Deputy Practice Manager. Mrs C.Valsamouli, our Practice Manager, oversees the whole team and makes sure everybody and everything is in order.
Our service is modeled on British GP surgeries, although our consultations last longer than the usual 10 minutes of the British NHS!!! Due to the nature of the summer holiday adversities we have expanded our service to include minor injuries and emergency care, similar to the one you would expect in a small A&E in UK.
Our working hours
Working hours are 09:30 – 14:30 and 18:00 – 20:30 during the busy summer season (1 May – 31 October) but emergency care (including home visits) is a 24/7 task for our team, should our patients need us. A reduced hours operating schedule applies in the winter months (1 November – 30 April).
