Welcome to Lakeside Medical Practice

Lakeside is a modern Practice, situated in a purpose-built modern building, and was one of the very first GP practices with its own website. Here at Lakeside, we have retained some of the popular parts of good old-fashioned doctoring.

All our receptionists will try to help you with any problems that might arise or if you have any questions about the service we offer at Lakeside.
