Doctors

Patients are free to consult whichever doctor they choose, irrespective of the doctor with whom they are registered. However, it is best if some continuity can be maintained by seeing the same doctor for each problem.

If you have a preference for a particular doctor, please inform our Reception Staff.

All GPs are registered with the General Medical Council.

Practice nurses

plan and provide nursing care, treatment, and health education. Our Practices Nurse responsibilities include (but are not limited to):


carrying out physical examinations, investigatory procedures, and cervical smear and pregnancy tests
applying and removing dressings
giving advice, education, and information about health conditions and ailments, stopping smoking and losing weight
taking patient samples, swabs, and specimens, and checking pulses, temperatures and blood pressures

 

By utilising the skills of Practice Nurses our surgery is able to take the burden off GPs whilst still providing our patients with the highest quality of care.

 

We have Practice Nurse appointments every day both telephone and face to face.

Pharmacists

Clinical pharmacists are predominantly focused on medicines and medication reviews. They work as part of the team, ensuring that patients get the right medications at the right times and will also see certain patients for reviews. This includes providing extra help to manage long-term conditions and advice for those on multiple medicines. 

Having clinical pharmacists in our practice means that GPs can focus their skills where they are most needed, for example on diagnosing and treating patients with more complex conditions. This helps GPs to manage the demands on their time.

We have Clinical pharmacist appointments every day via telephone
