Health Advice - Helpful Websites

Recommended Health Websites

Rather than carry pages and pages of health advice directly on our site we recommend the following web sites which offer a comprehensive resource for information and advice on health issues, first aid, medicines etc..

Steyning Health Centre is not responsible for the content on these external web sites and you visit them entirely at your own risk.

Remember that all advice should not be used a substitute for seeking advice from your GP. If in doubt book a consultation.
