health services

Eynsham is well supplied with public healthcare and private (ie commercial) health specialists. This page covers physical healthcare, dental healthcare, mental healthcare (including counselling), caring (children, adults, elderly and residential homes), keep fit, where to get information about healthcare, learning to be an Expert Patient, and finally, animal healthcare.
If you want to know anything about anything medical, consult NHS Direct - a serious mine of serious information. It is really well-laid out, easy to use and often very reassuring. Well worth consulting if you're worried about any or anyone's health problem - and wondering whether to consult a doctor.
