As an independant practice the primary health care team is led by two Doctors, the Chairman and the Practice Manager. Our Doctors have a special interest in providing family planning, steroid injections, controlled drugs, gynae & childrens medicine. We also provide private services such as HGV Medical examinations, the completion of Health Insurance forms, Travel Vaccinations and Claims.
You can now contact the surgery online to tell us about your non emergency medical problem or ask an admin question. You can ask for help anytime, anywhere within the UK, and with any device. Using Online Consultations allows us to quickly and safely decide on the best way to help you, your child, or an adult in your care. By creating an Engage Consult account you can also receive replies to your request online, rather than by phone.
