Dr Cooper       FEMALE

They are doctors who have worked in hospitals for a number of years come to work at the practice for a year before themselves becoming General Practitioners. This is valuable work experience for them and also benefits us by stimulating new ideas within the practice. From time to time the GP Registrars request that they video their consultation with you, as part of ongoing training, and reflection on techniques. Please inform reception staff if you would feel unhappy with this.

Receptionists & Secretaries

We have a team of 30 receptionists and 7 secretaries.

The receptionists, like all the staff, are there to assist you in making appointments, taking requests for home visits and answering other queries.  Please be patient if you are kept waiting or if you feel they are asking too many questions. They have to judge the urgency of requests so please give the information they require. They are bound by the same rules of confidentiality as the doctors and nurses.
