Welcome to Houghton Medical Group

Our practice is highly patient focused and we aim to provide you with a welcoming, professional and comprehensive primary health care service. Patients will receive individual care appropriate to their own needs and this will be delivered by combining the skills of the practice team with other health and social care workers in the community.
