Can you advise me of my local Health Visitor Clinic please?

Your local Health Visitor Clinic takes place at Lord Lister Health Centre on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Please visit the Staff page of our website for more information about the Health Visitor service.


I don’t have time to go to a pharmacy to collect my medication; can I collect my prescription at your Practice please?

Apologies, but no, this is not possible because Woodgrange Medical Practice does not keep medication on the premises because we do not have a pharmacist who is authorised to dispense medication.
