Welcome to Roxton

The Roxton Practice has provided medical services to the people of Immingham and the surrounding area for more than 60 years. The first home for the practice in Immingham was a small house in Manby Road, serving the population of Immingham. The Roxton Practice then moved to Worsley Road in approximately 1960 until 2004 when they moved into the Pilgrim Primary Centre in Immingham. More recently Roxton also provides services for our Grimsby residents at Weelsby View Health Centre as well as operating from The Health Centre in Keelby.
