Welcome To Our Surgery

The Practice & Role of the Doctors

We are a five-doctor practice working from a health centre in the northern half of Newham. We accept patients who live within our catchment area. We provide routine surgeries and a number of specialist clinics to promote better health by giving advice on diet, exercise, immunisation, smoking and alcohol consumption, as well as minor surgery and child health surveillance. We undertake routine screening for cervical and breast cancer. Clinics are also held for patients with high blood pressure, asthma, heart disease and diabetes. Our surgery is a purpose-built health centre and has wheelchair access and facilities for people with disabilities.
