We offer a range of clinics and services here at St James’ Practice, ranging from long term conditions and health care clinics, to vaccinations and doctor’s sick notes. We have an integrated well established team offering a multitude of services particularly during the current pandemic.
We would also like to support the mental health of our community during the pandemic and have GPs with special interests in that field. This has become a growing problem in society today and more so during Covid.
