The Practice comprises the equivalent of three full-time Doctors. We achieve continuity of care by ensuring that patients are only seen by the Practice they are registered with and by the most appropriate member of our clinical team; this could be a GP, Practice Nurse, Pharmacist or HCA.
Find out more about us in our Practice Leaflet.
All patients registered with our Practice are assigned to a named GP. This GP will have overall responsibility for the care and support our Surgery provides to you. Your medical care will be provided by the entire healthcare team, and appointments, consultations and home visits will be arranged with the most appropriate GP/Nurse available.
If you are unsure as to the identity of your named GP, our Reception Team will be happy to assist.
