What is a Health Centre and its services?

A Health Centre is the basic service of the National Health Service (NHS) to attend and provide health care to the population. The Health Centre is the first door you should knock when you need medical care.
In a Health Centre you meet family doctors and general practitioners, public health doctors (health delegates) and nurses, who provide essential health care, preventive and healing. Apart from the administrative personnel, in some Health Centres there are also other professionals working - social service technicians, psychologists, nutritionists, oral hygienists and environmental health technicians.
 
In general every day from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm.
