If you are one of our regular visitors you probably already know our experienced and approachable team, many of whom have been with the Practice for a long time. However, if you are a new patient, or simply wish to remind yourself who's who, the information contained in the following sections provides a brief introduction to ourselves:

DOCTORS

NURSE PRACTITIONERS

Our doctors are supported by three Nurse Practitioners, Cathy, Lynne and Alison. Cathy's main role specialises in seeing patients with long term conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and COPD whilst Lynne sees patients needing same day care. Alison is undergoing training to independently care for patients needing on the day medical attention.

You'll see all our Nurse Practitioners at the walk in clinics.
