Litchdon Medical Centre
With patients' needs at the heart of everything we do, our website www.litchdonmedicalcentre.co.uk has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations. Patients who previously used our old website to order repeat prescriptions, book and cancel appointments can use their existing logins on this site.
