Both the doctors and the nurses may at times have a student doctor or nurse with them.  You will be advised of this before your appointment and may, of course, ask to see the doctor or nurse alone.  Please bear in mind that sitting in with their tutor is an important part of the students training.

Receptionists

We have a Team of Receptionists who are your first point of contact. When telephoning for medical attention the Receptionist may ask you for a few details.  All Reception Staff are fully trained and ask for these details in order that we can help you in the most appropriate way.  Our Receptionists are very busy at certain times of the day and we ask that you be patient. The Receptionists ease the flow of patients for the Doctors, Nurses and Health Professionals and keep the Practice running smoothly.  They are here to help you.
