Our Staff

Doctors

Each Partner has their own Surgery base and tend to only hold clinics at 1 or 2 of the sites. None of the doctors work every day so they are not always available. As far as possible, for patient continuity, they prefer to see their own patients, but sometimes it will be necessary to see a different doctor. We also have several part-time Salaried Doctors who hold clinics as well. They are also based at one site in particular but do move around to help cover annual leave, etc. Alongside our GP's we have a range of clinical and non-clinical staff that you may be referred to, including specialist paramedics, physiotherapists and social prescribers.

Reception

Receptionists provide an important link for patients with the practice and are your initial contact point for general enquiries. They can provide basic information on services and results and direct you to the right person depending on your health issue or query. Receptionists make most of the patient appointments with the GPs and nurses. They also perform other important tasks such as issuing repeat prescriptions and dealing with prescription enquiries, dealing with financial claims, dealing with patient records and carrying out searches and practice audits.

Health Visitors

A health visitor is a registered nurse who has received training particularly related to babies, children and pregnant women. Their role is to provide families with children under five years old with support and advice around the general aspects of mental, physical and social wellbeing.
