About The Burns Practice

Practice Philosophy

The Burns Practice is a traditional family practice. We always put our patients’ interests first and take great pride in the level of care that we offer our patients.

Our team of GPs and nurses are of the highest standard; we aim to work with patients and to deal with problems by taking your wishes and values into consideration.

We are involved in training medical students and trainee GPs and enjoy the responsibility of helping to educate those who will care for you in the future.

We welcome your views and will always respond to your concerns.
