Training

Our practice is involved in the further training of doctors for the special skills required in family medicine. Every six months we have a doctor attached to our practice who will initially see patients with one of the partners and then run their own surgery. This doctor has the title of GP registrar. They are fully qualified doctors and will often have several years' experience of hospital medicine before joining us in general practice.

Admin & Reception

We have a team of receptionists, secretaries and dispensers and who are here to help you as much as possible. They will do many things for you including making appointments, taking messages, ordering prescriptions and ambulances, and will inform you of your test results when the doctor has seen and approved them. Sometimes they will ask for details of your condition in order to assess the degree of urgency. Such information is dealt with in complete confidence and at the direction of the doctors. Please be patient with our team members - they are trying to keep everyone happy!
