From the BBC:

"Most MPs hold surgeries in their constituency to give people an
opportunity to meet them and discuss matters of concern."

From "Wiktionary":
"5.(Britain) Any arrangement where people arrive and wait for an
interview with certain people, similar to a doctor's surgery. * Our MP
will be holding a surgery in the village hall on Tuesday."

I didn't know that.
