Reception Team

Our reception team cover the surgery hours at all times, their job being to ease the flow of patient/doctor/nurse consultations so as many patients as possible can be seen within the working day. Should you call in to make an appointment or with an enquiry, the reception staff can arrange this in privacy if you wish.

Administrative Team

Administrative staff work "behind the scenes" using one of the largest medical computer systems available to general practice to ensure accurate record keeping and patient care, eg - exemption claims, insurance medicals, hospital appointments and referrals, registrations etc.

Health Visitor

Health visitors play a major role in providing routine development checks for young children, and helping with health queries.

District Nurses

The district nurses provide nursing care for those unable to come to the surgery, eg after hospital discharge etc. You can contact them through the surgery or direct to their office on 01509 564422


The midwife is available on Thursdays and Fridays to assist the doctors with antenatal care.


Counselling is provided by our practice on certain days of the week but appointments are only arranged on referral from the doctor.

Medical Students

All the partners are designated tutors to fourth year medical students. When students are with a doctor a notice is displayed and the receptionist will inform you. Students benefit by contact with our patients during consultations but will willingly withdraw on request.
