Welcome To Isca Medical Centre


The doctors and staff would like to welcome you to Isca Medical Centre, which occupies Cadoc House, a delightful old vicarage in the village of Caerleon. There is also Candwr Brook Medical Centre, our branch surgery, which is located only two miles away in Stokes Court in the village of Ponthir.

Cadoc House was tastefully refurbished in 1999 and the branch surgery is a modern purpose-built medical centre completed in early 2004. These two amenities allow us to offer our patients first class facilities for the provision of medical care in the 21st Century.

This website has been designed to tell you about the practice and the services that we offer. Please read it carefully. We trust that you will find it helpful and informative.
