Get Well, Keep Well
Of course we’re not just here for when you are unwell. Our team of healthcare professionals and back-up staff offer a number of clinics and services to promote good health and wellbeing whatever your medical condition.
We hope you enjoy having a look around the site and familiarising yourself with some of the online features such as ordering a repeat prescription. Whatever your thoughts, be sure to let us know via our feedback function. Comments and suggestions are always a great way of helping us continue to enhance the way we look after you.
Access & Parking
All of our surgeries are accessible to patients using a wheelchair. We have parking spaces outside The Bridges Medical Centre which are reserved for patients displaying a disabled sticker. There is a lift available at The Bridges Medical Centre.
Fortunately there are large public car parks very close so could we ask you to use those to allow patients with significant mobility difficulties / Blue Badge holders to have access to the few spaces available at the rear of the surgery. If you do use those spaces please vacate the spaces following your consultation / visit to Lloyds pharmacy as soon as possible to allow your following patients to access them.
Littlemoor Surgery and Health Centre have plenty of free parking available.
