Quick Reference Guide

Who should I see at the surgery?

It is not always necessary to book an appointment with a doctor. Many cases of minor illness and injury can be dealt with appropriately by another healthcare professional such as a nurse practitioner, practice nurse or health care assistant. The guide found here will help you to decide which is most appropriate in your case.

General Enquiries

If you have any query regarding non-medical matters, the reception team will be happy to assist you wherever possible. Our practice manager, Suzanne Fryers and reception manager Catherine Mattei are responsible for the general office and administration and are available during surgery hours.
