The philosophy of the practice is to provide a very responsive service for patients and excellent clinical care.
The practice area encompasses the pleasant Berkshire town of Maidenhead and surrounding vicinity. The town has a good shopping centre with restaurants, cafes, banks, cinemas and all the usual facilities. Served by a main railway line from Paddington, with frequent fast trains into London. Access to the M4 is only minutes away from the town centre and the M25 about 20 minutes drive away.
