As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations.
Get Well, Keep Well
Of course we’re not just here for when you are unwell. Our team of healthcare professionals and back-up staff offer a number of clinics and services to promote good health and wellbeing whatever your medical condition.

How Are You is for over 18s only and is only designed to point you in the right direction. It’s not a medical assessment – if you’re worried about your health you should speak to a health professional.

FLU SEASON - At Risk of flu or 2 - 4 yrs Old?
It is that time of year again where we encourage all our “at risk” patients to have a flu jab. If you are over 65, have a long-term condition or you are pregnant please speak to reception to arrange for a flu injection appointment or to attend one of our drop-in clinics.
