At Lonsdale we promote self care and tailor our services to the needs of our patients offering a personalised care approach.
If you are feeling unwell please try our self help sections or the options for self referral such as sexual health home testing and physiotherapy referrals.
If none of these options are suitable you can complete an online consultation and a member of our team will review your case within 24 hours. You may be directed to a more appropriate service or booked to see someone at Lonsdale.

All patients registered with a GP have a Summary Care Record, unless they have chosen not to have one. The information held in your Summary Care Record gives health and care professionals, away from your usual GP practice, access to information to provide you with safer care, reduce the risk of prescribing errors and improve your patient experience.
Please note the Practice will need to opt the patient out via a government website.

Units are a simple way of expressing the quantity of pure alcohol in a drink.
One unit equals 10ml or 8g of pure alcohol, which is around the amount of alcohol the average adult can process in an hour.
This means that within an hour there should be, in theory, little or no alcohol left in the blood of an adult, although this will vary from person to person.
The number of units in a drink is based on the size of the drink, as well as its alcohol strength.
For example, a pint of strong lager contains 3 units of alcohol, whereas the same volume of low-strength lager has just over 2 units.
Knowing your units will help you stay in control of your drinking.
Please state how many units of alcohol you drink a week
