Meet the Practice Team

We work as a team, recognising that all staff have an important role to play.



You will be registered with a named GP but you can consult any member of the team and choose any GP to be your regular doctor. Although the GPs work closely as a team, they can tailor care to your particular needs when they know more about you personally. As often as possible, it's worth making appointments to see the same doctor and asking for them specifically.
