Asthma and COPD Clinics

The surgery routinely requests all asthmatic and COPD patients to attend a yearly clinic to check how they are doing. If you feel you need to be seen before this you can make an appointment with a doctor.

Minor Surgeries

We are able to offer minor surgery appointments for small procedures such as cyst removal and in-growing toe nails. Please make a routine appointment with a GP and your name will be placed on a waiting list and you will be informed when a minor surgery appointment is available.
