We are an accredited training practice. We run a team of 4 permanent Doctors, 2 Nurses, 2 Assistant Practitioners, 1 Practice Manager, 1 Reception Manager and 9 receptionists/Administrative staff. Together we endeavour to provide the best possible care. We are also privileged to be part of the NHS Doctor Training Programme so will often have a Registrar running Clinics at the Surgery. The Registrars are fully qualified doctors who after completing some hospital placements have chosen a career in General Practice. The Registrars spend a total of 18 months training, but not always in the same place. As a result, you may find they spend any time from 6 months to a year with us. Ath the end of this placement they will be fully qualified GPs and able to seek employment in General Practice.
