Lavant Road Surgery Philosophy:

Our aims are to offer the highest standard of health care and advice to our patients, with the resources available to us.  Continuity of care is very important to us.

We have a team approach to patient care and endeavour to monitor the service provided to patients, to ensure that it meets current standards of excellence. 

We are dedicated to ensuring that Practice staff and Doctors are trained to the highest level and to provide a stimulating and rewarding environment in which to work.

We aim to have open discussion with our patients and welcome their views via the Lavant Road Surgery Patient Participation Group.
