Queen's Road Medical Practice in Guernsey offers a wide range of primary healthcare services to local residents, from doctors with a broad range of professional interests, to physiotherapy, chiropractic and osteopathy services, and an ear, nose and throat department. The Practice is also a leading provider of Occupational Health services in the Bailiwick.

In 1992 the long established Guernsey medical practices known as Albany and Grange End were amalgamated to become Queen's Road Medical Practice, one of three primary care practices in Guernsey.

Queen's Road Medical Practice operates from two surgeries: Queen's Road Medical Centre in St Peter Port and the Le Longfrie practice in the upper parish of St Pierre du Bois. Both are located in pleasant surroundings with excellent wheelchair access thanks to ramps and wide entrance doorways. Queen's Road Medical Centre also features a lift to the physiotherapy, chiropractic and osteopathy department.

Queen's Road Medical Practice aims to provide the highest standard of up to date patient-centred primary care services to the people of Guernsey.

More Than Just A Doctors' Surgery - Ear Care,
Physiotherapy, Chiropractic & Osteopathy


Audiology & Ear Care

Queens Road Medical Practice’s ear care services are hosted at Le Longfrie Surgery in their state of the art audiology room, offering comprehensive assessment and treatment of ear and hearing problems. This includes Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) problems responsible for vertigo and balance disorders.

Hearing Tests are available and if a Hearing Aid is determined as necessary then ‘Hidden Hearing’ audiologists visit the practice once per week and provide a full hearing aid fitting service. Hearing aids can be trialled before purchase. If your ears need to be cleaned at the same time then this can be done.

Ear Syringing is performed by practice nurses and is suitable for wax removal in uncomplicated cases. Microsuction is suitable for removal of wax in patients of all ages and for treatment of otitis externa (swimmer’s ear), and can be safer and more effective than syringing in certain cases. Tympanometry is used in the assessment of middle ear problems including glue ear and is also used to determine safety to fly and dive.


Physiotherapy, Chiropractic & Osteopathy

Physiotherapy helps people affected by injury, illness or disability through movement and exercise, manual therapy, education and advice.

Chiropractic focuses on the spine, concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system which may affect general health via the nervous system.

Osteopathy primarily focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation and prevention of musculoskeletal disorders. With a highly skilled sense of touch, Osteopaths seek to restore optimal functioning of the body and aid its intrinsic ability to heal itself.

This range of services can provide benefits for the treatment of conditions including:

  • Back and neck pain
  • Joint pain
  • Lymphoedema
  • Muscular aches
  • Muscle imbalance
  • Nerve pain
  • Postural & skeletal problems
  • Incontinence
  • Sports injuries
  • Tendon, ligament, muscle and joint injuries
  • Headaches
  • Occupational and repetitive strains
  • Growing pains

Advice can be given on:

  • Building muscles
  • Improving mobility in preparation for surgery
  • Pain relief
  • Rehabilitation after injuries or operations
  • Sporting and recreational activities
  • Chairs and workplace display equipment setup
  • Driving position
  • Core stability work
  • Back care during/after pregnancy
  • Posture
  • Beds and pillows
  • Lifting

The Practice also hires out equipment such as TENS machines and exercise aids, and provides advice on ergonomics.

Initial appointments may last up to 45 minutes, assessing your condition and discussing treatment with you. Subsequent appointments continuing treatment last up to 30 minutes. Referrals may be made by your Doctor, a Specialist or you may self-refer. Patients should check their insurance cover (and obtain prior GP approval where applicable) before commencing treatment. Further details are available upon request.


Occupational Health For Modern Businesses


Occupational Health

Queen's Road Medical Practice delivers a flexible range of pro-active and cost effective Occupational Health services to meet the needs of modern local businesses. These actively promote and maintain good health in the workplace, for legal compliance, and to support employers and employees when health problems occur.

Occupational Health should be important to Guernsey businesses that recognise their corporate, legal and social responsibility to their staff. Benefits to a business include:

  • Improved staff motivation and performance
  • Better staff attendance, retention and productivity
  • Reduction in sickness absence levels
  • Reduced risk and cost of litigation
  • Increased profitability
  • Tailored occupational health

All companies are unique, with different hazard and risk profiles. Queen's Road Medical Practice offer a flexible service matched to each client's specific need. After an initial review of your premises/operations they will propose a suitable package tailored to your needs, which can include:

  • Pre-employment medical assessments of prospective employees with full confidentiality
  • Medical examinations for statutory or other purposes
  • Medical screening of the physical & psychological capabilities of prospective employees
  • Routine and/or periodic health surveillance of staff
  • Ergonomic assessments in your workplace
  • Sickness absence management
  • Occupational health referrals for early detection of potential issues
  • Workplace vaccinations, including Hepatitis A & B, Influenza & Pneumovax
  • Screening for Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS) for staff using power tools

Under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, employers have a legal duty to protect the health of their employees. Under the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002 (COSHH) employers have a legal duty to assess the risk of infection for employees and others affected by their work.

An employer has a duty to provide health surveillance for all their employees in Guernsey who, despite actions to control the risk, are likely to be regularly exposed above the exposure action value or are considered to be at risk for any other reason. The Health and Safety Executive Guidance (HSG88) recommends a preventative approach to control the risk of injury.
