Drugs and Alcohol

Our practice is involved in a Shared Care clinic for patients with drug and alcohol problems.

The clinic is run by Dr Marrinan with a Drug Worker from a local voluntary organisation specialising in working with clients who have substance abuse problems The clinic is also supported by the local Consultant Psychiatrists who specialise in addiction who are part of the South London and Maudsley NHS Trust.

If you feel you or a member of your family may need help with a drug or alcohol problem, you can discuss this with any of the GPs or Nurses and they will advise you how we can support you.
