This website tells you about the practice and the services we offer.

The practice was established in 1976 with one general practitioner. By 1982, the practice had grown to four general practitioners with approximately 6,000 patients and moved into the purpose-built health centre we are in today. The practice currently has seven partners, one salaried GP as well as GP registrars. Our practice population is around 10,000.

The doctors practice together as a non-limited partnership.
