Our practice population is reflects the diverse community within which it sits. The majority of our patients are young, between the ages of 20 - 50, and whilst we have a lower prevalence of long term conditions than the local average, the impact of the wider and social determinants of health is significant. Our patient demographic sits in the 1st most deprived decile; working to care for this community is hugely rewarding and offers great variety.
