The practice employs a team of reception, secretarial and administration staff to help you make appointments, answer queries and deal with administration. All our staff are committed to a high level of customer service. Whatever the problem, we will try to assist and will certainly know who to ask if we cannot deal with it personally.
Our team of community nurses all work closely with your doctor and provide nursing care within your home when clinically necessary.
The health visitors are specifically trained in the care of young families and the elderly and can be contacted by telephone on 0300 7900243 for help and advice between 9.00am - 5.00pm Monday to Friday. When they are out, a receptionist is available to take a message. There are various children’s clinics around the area and the health visitors will also visit families at home by arrangement.

Mental Health Services
We can refer patients to an NHS funded counsellor who sees patients by appointment. We also liaise closely with the community mental health team based at Highlands House and can organise Psychology appointments if needed.
Teaching & Training
We are an approved training practice for qualified doctors who are training to become GP’s. You may be offered an appointment with our trainees who will usually discuss your treatment with one of the Partners. If you would prefer not to see the trainee please inform reception. This will not affect your treatment. On occasions, we may ask if you mind your consultation (but not examination) being video recorded as this is an excellent way to help doctors improve their consulting skills.
