Chiropody Clinic

The community chiropody is provided in the mobile van, which will visit the villages on a regular basis. The service is intended for patients who are unable to tend to their own foot care or whose health may be adversely affected by poor foot care. Ask for a chiropody form from reception.

Alternatively, there is a private chiropody sevice in the Limes Complementary Thearpy Unit, held on a Saturday morning.


Medical examinations for insurance policies, HGV or PSV drivers, elderly drivers, sub-aqua purposes etc, can be arranged by appointment. As these invariably do not come under your doctor's terms of NHS service, a fee will be charged.

New Patient Consultations

Every patient registering with the Westbank Practice will have the opportunity of a new patient consultation. The appointment gives you a chance to meet us, have your health checked and bring to light any ongoing medical problems or important past medical history, including continuing your medication.

Your appointment may be either with your doctor or a practice nurse.
