We cannot provide all routine services listed above as you should contact your own GP practice for these. We cannot do routine referrals or testing if you are registered to another GP. The service is for minor illness and minor injury; we do not have x-ray facilities.

On occasion it may be necessary to contact your GP for further information regarding your care. We will only do this with your consent.
