Our Practice Team

Our Practice Team

We have three General Practitioners in our Practice, and two Salaried GPs.

Named GP for All Patients

From April 2015 all Practices are required to provide patients with a Named / Accountable GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our Practice provides to them. If you would like to know who your Named GP is, please ask the Receptionist. Having a Named GP does not prevent you from seeing any GP in the Practice as you currently do.

We have a Nurse Practitioner at the Practice.

The Nurse Practitioner deals with minor illness and acute medical problems as well as being responsible for chronic desease management. Many problems which traditionally required the attention of a GP can now be dealt with by our highly trained Specialist Nurse Practitioner. 

Our Nurse Practitioner has  undergone additional specialist training.

We have three Practice Nurses and one Health Care Assistant.
