Welcome to Sandown Health Centre Online
The doctors and staff at Sandown Health Centre on the Isle of Wight are proud to offer the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare.
We run many clinics for the management of chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes and offer a wide variety of other medical services including antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups.
This service is ideally suited for children, over 65 year olds and those who are entitled to free prescriptions.
A new scheme has been set up which allows people with certain ailments to go straight to their pharmacist to receive a consultation without needing to visit their GP to get a prescription first.
Your pharmacist is a qualified healthcare professional who can help with your health problems and will offer you a private space to talk with you about your symptoms. If it is something more serious, then they will direct you appropriately.
Below is a list of ailments that your local pharmacist should be able to give you treatment for:
|- Constipation||- Diarrhoea|
|- Insect bites & sting||- Allergic rhinitis/Hayfever|
|- Headlice||- Mouth ulcers|
|- Haemorrhoids||- Vaginal thrush|

Healthier Together is a free website and app developed by local healthcare professionals to help parents keep their children safe and healthy.
The website gives parents access to know where to go when their child is ill, providing information from local healthcare professionals about what might be wrong, what to do and where to go for help.
