Medical Students

Our Practices are assisting in the training and teaching of final year medical students and you may therefore be asked if you mind a student being present during your consultation. You will always be asked for permission before any such consultation and if you prefer, they will not be present.

Pharmacy Service

Most of our local pharmacies provide a prescription pick up service. If you feel you would benefit from this service, please inform one of the reception staff.
