Woodlands Medical Practice

At Woodlands Medical Practice in Brooklands the doctors and nurses take pride in offering the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare. We run many clinics for chronic disease care and offer a wide variety of other medical services such as antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups. We pride ourselves on being a small friendly practice, getting to know our patients well.

Woodlands Medical Practice is also an approved training practice for GP registrars and medical students. To become good doctors the students need to have contact with patients and we appreciate your contribution to their training. However if you do not want a medical student to sit in the consultation, please let the reception know. In addition to everything you need to know about the practice you will also find a wealth of health-related information in the menu on the website. Please have a look around and do send us some feedback if you like.
