Training Practice

The surgery is a training practice and so from time to time has GP registrars attached. These registrars are fully qualified doctors who have decided upon a career in General Practice and are based at the surgery to receive training in aspects of family medicine. On occasion we also have medical students with us as a part of their general medical training. They are here only to observe and, with the patient’s consent, will sit in with the doctor. 

Advanced Nurse Practitioners (ANP)

Our Advanced Nurse Practitioners (ANP) are Registered Nurses who have undertaken additional training and academic qualifications to be able to examine, assess, make diagnoses, treat, prescribe and make referrals for patients who present with undiagnosed/undifferentiated problems.

Practice Nurses (PN)

Practice Nurses (PN) are available to do dressings, foreign travel vaccinations, tetanus injections, asthma, diabetic and CHD and baby clinics. They give advice and general nursing duties. They also organise and assist with health promotion

Health Care Assistants (HCA)

Our Health Care Assistants (HCA) run clinics for phlebotomy, blood pressure, new patient checks and health education. They assist at minor operations and record ECGs as requested by the doctors. They also do simple dressings, spirometry, diabetic foot checks, data collection and measurements (e.g. height and weight) for long-term medical conditions. HCAs will also give routine immunisations.

Midwife, Antenatal & Postnatal Care

The Community Midwife conducts antenatal clinics in the surgery. The midwife will support you throughout your antenatal care, labour and early postnatal period, providing shared care with your GP and the hospital you have chosen for your delivery. The hospital clinic is led by a Consultant Obstetrician who will arrange appropriate blood tests, scans and further investigations as necessary and providing further care according to the local guidelines.
