We aim to provide the highest standard of acute care, chronic disease management and to screen for medically and socially important diseases while encouraging positive health beliefs. We strive to be accessible and friendly to the population we serve, while fostering the personal motivations of the practice team.

We offer advice on female health, teenage sexual health, birth control, menopause. Counsellors and alcohol workers also hold
