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?
Below is a link to a quiz to help find the healthier you..
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.
Please note that the surgery will be closed during the normal UK bank holiday times (https://www.gov.uk/bank-holidays)
