Teaching/Attached Doctors

We are a GP training Practice. Each year a fully qualified GP Registrar with experience in hospital medicine who is preparing to become a GP joins our Practice, sharing in all aspects of medical care with the Partners. We welcome the fresh ideas and enthusiasm they bring to our team. Our GP Trainer is primarily responsible for supervising and supporting the GP Registrar, and therefore spends one half day per week in tutorial session, during which time he is unavailable for consultations. Occasionally medical students and nurses in training may also spend time with our Practice.

Nurses

The practice nursing team offers a wide range of services including. If you are a patient seeing the practice nurse on a regular basis and you have a query about your condition or treatment you are welcome to telephone the surgery to speak to the nurse of your choice. This will depend on the availability for the return call and advise you of alternatives if your message cannot wait. Please note practice nurses do not undertake telephone consultations for travel advice.
