Our staff

The surgery staff comprises of 7 Salaried GPs, 4 Advanced Nurse Practitioners, 3 Practice Nurses, 2 Practice Pharmacists, 3 Health Care Assistants, Administration staff, Receptionists and Dispensers.


Only the Doctors and Staff of the practice have access to your medical records (WHO ARE ALL BOUND BY THE CONFIDENTIALITY AGREEMENT). Information to a 3rd Party cannot be disclosed without written consent from the patient.

Advanced Nurse Practitioners (ANPs)

Our advanced nurse practitioners are all independent prescribers and hold qualifications in autonomous diagnosis. They are available to advise and prescribe for a wide variety of minor illnesses, such as: cough, colds, earache, sore throats, conjunctivitis, joint & back problems, hay fever, ‘women’s problems’, urine problems, rashes / other skin problems and morning after pill. They cannot deal with on-going problems that the Doctor is investigating, and cannot issue sick notes. It would help immensely if you could indicate some idea of what the problem is when you book an appointment with the ANP. You may prebook an appointment with the ANP but can also book on the same day.
