We have a full complement of practice and attached community health staff operating from our modern, custom built premises. We have two GP Partners and one salaried GP at Academy Medical Centre, assisted by a team of nurses and healthcare assistants.

Of course we're not just here for when you are unwell. Our team of healthcare professionals and back-up staff promote good health and wellbeing whatever your medical condition.
