Reception/Admin

We have a team of receptionists and secretaries who are here to help you as much as possible. They will do many things for you including making appointments, taking messages, ordering prescriptions and ambulances, and will inform you of your test results when the doctor has seen and approved them. Sometimes they will ask for details of your condition in order to assess the degree of urgency. Such information is dealt with in complete confidence and at the direction of the doctors. Please be patient with our team members - they are trying to keep everyone happy!

Community Nurses

Our district nurses are responsible for all domiciliary visits, i.e. patients who are completely housebound.

Health Visitors

A health visitor is a registered nurse who has received training particularly related to babies, children and pregnant women. Their role is to provide families with children under five years old with support and advice around the general aspects of mental, physical and social wellbeing.
