Our Services

Accidents and emergency

If you have an emergency and require immediate care, you do not need to make an appointment. A triage nurse will assess you on arrival for treatment.

Full family medical care

Family medical care consists of primary illness prevention and general healthcare. Always see your doctor if you or a family member are feeling unwell.

Infant checks and immunisations

We’ll take care of the good health and well-being of your infant with the required immunisations and checkups through the early stages of their life.

Contraception and sexual health care

Sexual health can be a challenging subject for some people. When you see us, we’ll treat you with total respect and discretion. We also supply Mirena IUDs.

Minor surgery

Your doctor can take care of a range of minor surgical procedures. Book an appointment if you have a suspect mole or lesion, ingrown toenails or other concerns.

Health education and care

General checkups are as important as any other form of maintenance. They promote better health and well-being, even if you are feeling well.

Nursing services and advice

Book an appointment to see a nurse if you need a smear, booster shot, a blood test, a diabetic review or any other vital service.


We have a fully funded Health Improvement Practitioner on-site to help you with general mental health and well-being. Simply book through reception.

Travel immunisations

If you need to travel to another part of the world, we can take care of any essential vaccinations or medication. Contact your nurse to discuss.

Children and infants

All medical care is free for children under 14 years of age. If your child is feeling unwell, don’t hesitate to book an appointment as soon as possible.
