This website has been designed to tell you about the practice and the services that we offer. Please read it carefully. We trust that you will find it helpful and informative.
There has been a medical practice at the Lea Road/Oaklands Road corner since about 1938. The present building was erected in 1954 and was built as a medical suite rather than an adapted house.
The building and its running costs are wholly financially supported by the doctors. We hope that this website will tell you all you need to know about how the practice works.

For the past few weeks we have been experiencing telephone problems. The BT and Virgin Media engineers, as well as our telephone providers, are all coming out as soon as possible to hopefully resolve the issue. We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused.
What are the symptoms, and what should I do if I think I'm infected?
A person infected with Ebola virus will typically develop a fever, headache, joint and muscle pain, a sore throat, and intense muscle weakness.
These symptoms start suddenly, between two and 21 days after becoming infected, but usually after five to seven days.
If you feel unwell with the above symptoms within 21 days of coming back from Guinea, Liberia or Sierra Leone, you should stay at home and immediately telephone 111 or 999 and explain that you have recently visited West Africa.
These services will provide advice and arrange for you to be seen in a hospital if necessary so the cause of your illness can be determined.
If you feel you have been at risk of Ebola and have symptoms please ring 111 immediately.
Do not under any circumstance visit the surgery, walk-in centre or A&E without first calling 111 where fully trained staff will advise you on what to do.
