Sherborne Health & Care Directory

     This Directory lists contact details of local organisations that offer support to help you stay healthy and independent. It is arranged A-Z. If you can’t find what you are looking for, speak to a Receptionist at your GP practice for further advice. The information has been compiled and distributed by the Patient Participation Groups of the Sherborne Medical Practices for the benefit of the community of Sherborne and District and is made possible by the generous support of the Sherborne Summer Festival.
