Welcome to Downham Family Medical Practice

We provide comprehensive NHS primary care services to help you manage your health and well-being.

We are a local well established family practice and have been in existence on the Downham estate since 1954. We moved to our current premises at The Downham Health and Leisure Centre in September 2007.  Our health professionals are committed to providing a high standard of care under the NHS.

  • Having a highly qualified and trained multi-professional integrated primary Healthcare Team
  • Offering our services in a safe, supportive and suitably equipped environment, using technological advances in healthcare systems for our patient’s benefit

We work very closely with our allied Community Nursing, Health Visiting and Specialist Teams to ensure your care is co-ordinated to the highest of standards. We welcome any comments or suggestions you may have.
