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.
GP Locums are fully qualified General Practitioners who work in several different practices to cover surgeries for absent GP Partners, the cover maybe short or long term.
Clinical Pharmacists work directly with physicians, other health professionals, and patients to ensure that the medications prescribed for patients contribute to the best possible health outcomes.

They work very closely with the doctors and they are trained to do an extensive number of procedures and tests and hold screening clinics etc. You may book with the nurse for such services as foreign travel immunisation, cervical smears, routine blood pressure checks and general medical advice.

Receptionists & Secretaries
We have a team of 30 receptionists and 6 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.
If your doctor feels that you are troubled with problems such as anxiety, depression, stress or relationship issues, arrangements can be made to see a counsellor at the surgery. Our counsellors also run relaxation and anxiety management groups.
The health visitors are available for advice especially with children and the elderly, and monitor the health and development of children and families. They run a well baby clinic each Tuesday afternoon The health visitors can be contacted on 01606 544530
