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.
The Nurses also offer a wide range of clinics and services. It is often possible that they can help a patient if a GP is unavailable.
|The practice manager is involved in managing all of the business aspects of the practice such as making sure that the right systems are in place to provide a high quality of patient care, human resources, finance, patient safety, premises and equipment and information technology. The practice manager supports the GPs and other medical professionals with delivering patient services and also helps to develop extended services to enhance patient care.|

|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.|
