Did you know that you don't always need to see a Doctor?
The Forest Practice is pleased to announce that we now have a full time practice based Clinical Pharmacist working as part of our clinical team. Our clinical pharmacist is also an independent prescriber which means he can prescribe medicines just like your GP.
The practice also has Nurses and Health Care Assistants. You can book apointments directly with them by phone or at reception, and you will often be able to see them quicker than a doctor.

- Blood Pressure Checks
- NHS Health Check (Ages 40 - 74)
