The Salaried Doctors
The Practice Manager and Support Team
Our practice manager Owen and our operations manager Emily are responsible for the daily running and business aspects of the practice.
They are supported by our clinical administrators to ensure we provide the highest quality service to our patients.
Our Advanced Nurse Practitioner
Advanced nurse practitioners are registered nurses who have done extra training and academic qualifications to be able to examine, assess, make diagnoses, treat, prescribe and make referrals for patients who present with undiagnosed/undifferentiated problems
Specialist Mental Health Nurse
We offer appointments with our specialist Mental Health Nurse who is able to assess and help navigate patients presenting with mental health problems.
Please note that this particular service isn't available for patients under the age of 18.
The Nursing Team and Healthcare Assistants
Our nurses provide a number of important services including dressings and wound care, immunisations, chronic disease clinics and run our popular leg club.
Our HCAs support the wider team in carrying out these tasks.
A first contact practitioner (FCP) is an experienced physiotherapist who has the advanced skills necessary to assess, diagnose and recommend appropriate treatment or referral for musculoskeletal (MSK) problems on a patient's first contact with healthcare services e.g. when they visit their GP surgery.
They are also able to offer joint injections where appropriate.
The Secretarial and Administration Team
Our team of secretarial and clerical staff provide administrative support for the practice, releasing reception and clinical staff to devote their time to patients.
The Pharmacist and The Medicines Management Team
The surgery has a practice pharmacist and pharmacy technicians. They deal with repeat prescription requests and medication queries.
The pharmacists also run clinics for patients with long-term conditions.
The pharmacist role is to support GPs in ensuring patients are taking the most appropriate medication and to ensure patients attend for regular reviews of their long term conditions.
The Reception Team
Our 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 will direct you to the most suitable healthcare professional.
