English to French translations [Non-PRO] Medical - Medical (general)
English term or phrase:Doctors Surgery
Does anybody know what this refers to in French? Could it be "médecins chirurgiens" ?
Here's the context:
"Complete your GP ‘Patient Survey’ telling your Doctors Surgery how you feel about them"
Explanation: In the UK, a doctor's surgery' is her or his 'cabinet'.
In practice (and this appears to be the case here), several doctors often get together in what may or may not be officially called a 'group practice', in which case the 'cabinet' might be more a 'centre médical'
It should really have been written doctor's surgery (= 1 doctor) or doctors' surgery (= several docotors)
Of course, it has little really to do with 'chirugerie' — not least because most GPs are more likely to be physicans than surgeons!
