Our GPs

Doctors’ schedule

Please note all times are subject to change, as our GP’s can swap/change days due to the needs of the practice.

Admin session (when the doctor deals with emergency queries/ admin responsibilities such as prescriptions/sick notes etc.) are also allocated evenly to the doctors throughout the week, meaning this allocated GP will not have available bookings.

The best to way to get an accurate portrayal of the week is to speak to the reception team.

Locum GPs

Occasionally when there is the need for it, other fully qualified and registered GP’s will provide surgeries in our practice to help with appointments.

Medical students and Nursing students attend the practice from time to time. We hope that you will co-operate with us and help the students to learn about general practice. However, you will be informed of their presence in advance, and if you do not want them to be present at a consultation, your wishes will be respected. This will not affect your treatment in any way.

Named Doctors

It is now a requirement that all patients have a named GP. The named GP will be responsible for co-ordinating all services relating to your care. This change will not affect the way in which you book appointments and you will still have a choice as to which GP you see.

If you wish to know who your named GP is, please contact the reception team.
