Wickersly Health Centre

Wickersley Health Centre is situated on Poplar Glade, which is immediately adjacent to the main Wickersley roundabout at the crossroads of Bawtry Road and Morthen Road. The health centre has excellent parking facilities and disabled access, the whole building is on one level and we have ramps for wheelchair access. The practice can trace its roots back to the early 1930s originally practising from premises on Sycamore Avenue, Wickersley. In the 1970s Wickersley Health Centre was opened and the practice began to serve the community from that time.
