Practice Staff

Doctors

The practice is required to provide you with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to you. Your named GP will also work with other relevant health and care professionals involved in your care to ensure that your care package meets your individual needs. If you wish to know who your named GP is, please ask a member of staff.

This does not prevent you from seeing any GP in the practice.
