Advanced Practitioners

Many of our Advanced Practitioners have special areas of expertise including the care of older people, children, women’s health, travel health and mental health problems.

Having the Advanced Practitioners gives us more appointments, and ensures the GPs have time to care for patients with many medical problems and very complex health needs.

Every practitioner works alongside a GP, who is available for advice, and if the AP is unable to deal with the problem, care will be transferred to the GP.

Reception & Admin

We employ 52 administration staff working across all four of our sites.

They represent a committed and hard working team, here to help you see the doctor or nurse, undertake repeat prescriptions, answer questions and give any other assistance you may need.

All our staff are involved in continual professional training. Please remember that they are also bound by the same code of confidentiality as our GPs and nursing team.

Receptionists provide an important link for patients with the Practice and are your initial contact point for general enquiries.

They can provide basic information on services and results and direct you to the right person depending on your health issue or query. Receptionists make most of the patient appointments with the GPs and nurses. They also perform other important tasks such as issuing repeat prescriptions and dealing with: prescription enquiries, financial claims, patient records and carrying out searches and Practice audits.
