New Musculoskeletal Service
Patients with muscle and joint problems can now be seen by our new Advance Practice Physiotherapist Service at Alison Lea Community Clinic WITHOUT THE NEED TO SEE A DOCTOR FIRST. Please ask our reception staff to book an appointment directly.
Our Practice is a registered Yellow Fever Vaccination Centre.
Make an appointment with our Practice Nurse. We can administer Yellow Fever vaccinations whether you are our patient or not. There is a charge for yellow fever immunisation (and other travel immunisations) as it does not come under the NHS.
If you give your mobile number to reception we'll text you the day before your appointment as a gentle reminder.
