Tamworth House Medical Practice

Tamworth House Medical Centre is a partnership of five doctors, four working full-time and Dr. Santina LaPorta working part-time on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. As a practice we try, not only to treat illness, but also to promote general good health and well being in our patients. We endeavour to treat all our patients as individuals, with needs that are not only physical but also emotional, irrespective of race, creed, colour, gender, sexual orientation or religion. The practice is part of Merton Clinical Commissioning Group operating under the Personal Medical Services contract.
