Old Bridge Surgery


If you care for, or help someone with an illness or disability, whether this is a partner, friend, other relation or even a neighbour then YOU ARE A CARER.

Here at Old Bridge Surgery, we pride ourselves on providing the best possible support for our patients who care for somebody else as well as those individuals in their care.
