 *Please note the working days of the GPs are when they are at the Health Centre. However they won't always be holding Clinics as they rotate daily as the 'On-Call' Doctor - who will take responsibility for the majority of Telephone Appointments and Home Visits.

Our GPs are supoorted by our Team of Practice Nurses and our Urgent Care Practitioner.
They can be seen by appointment for dressings; injections; ear syringing; hearing tests; baby immunisation; foreign travel immunisations; family planning; cervical smears; removal of sutures; disease management; and health promotion.
