We are a GP training practice which means that we have trainee GP’s working in our practice for 6 or 12 month placements.
The trainees are fully qualified doctors who have already been working in hospitals for at least 2 years, and in many cases for much longer, and you may have already met them in their former roles. When working in the practice their work is supervised by our two trainers, Dr Selby and Dr Norris, who will be available for advice.
We welcome the fresh approaches our trainees bring and find it a stimulating experience to have them working with us. As part of their training these doctors will sometimes need to video their consultations: you will always be asked for your consent if videoing is planned, and you may decline if you do not want to be videoed. However, it would be greatly appreciated if you do consent, in the sure knowledge that your confidentiality will be respected and that you are contributing to the development of our future GP’s.

DIP, RSA – Practice Manager
The team comprises IT and secretarial staff who work in collaboration with the clinicians to ensure the behind the scenes work is effectively carried out so that you receive a smooth efficient service from the practice.
Our Reception Manager is called Rachel Wood
The receptionists are often the first people you have contact with at the surgery. Theirs are the voices at the end of the telephone when you make an appointment or an enquiry, the faces you see when you make an appointment or pick up your prescription. Their duties are multi skilled and essential to the effective operation of a busy GP practice. The receptionists are trained to help you with any queries or questions you might have about the practice or its services. There are occasions when the receptionist may need to ask you for personal information. Please do not be offended by this as they are following necessary procedures and all information is treated in the strictest confidence at all times. Please be courteous to our staff as they are there to help you.
