The primary health care team work across both Practice sites. In addition to the GP partners, the team includes the following members:
GP registrars are qualified doctors who are planning a career in general practice. They will be attached to the practice for a period of 12 months and will hold their own surgeries under appropriate supervision of Dr Chin, Dr Howes, and Dr Ross. When you ring for an appointment you may be offered an appointment with one of the GP Registrars. Sometimes the registrars may ask to video your consultation. These videos will be used for training purposes only and not for any other reason.

Foundation Year 2 GPs

They will be attached to the practice for a period of four months and will hold their own surgeries under the supervision of Dr Howes.

Our Advanced Practitioners are available to see patients in a similar role to that of the doctors. They can prescribe and issue prescriptions for patients. They have appointments throughout the day and are available outside the usual surgery times of the doctors, ie 11:00 to 15:00. They work across both sites.

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 make most of the patient appointments with the GPs and nurses. They also perform other important tasks such as issuing repeat prescriptions and dealing with prescription enquiries, dealing with financial claims, dealing with patient records and carrying out searches and practice audits.
