Doctors

We have 10 permanent GPs with a wide range of clinical interests. They look after Patients with chronic illness, with the aim to keep people in their own homes and ensure they are as well as they can possibly be.

Our GPs work as part of a large Multidisciplinary Team and together, they support the care of our Patients.

GP Registrars

We are proud to be a well-established training practice, helping qualified doctors, known as registrars, complete the final stages of their GP Training.

We believe that achieving and maintaining training practice status enhances the quality of the medical care that we provide at the practice. It also enables patients to see a wider range of clinicians whilst allowing the surgery to benefit from the fresh ideas and approaches brought by young enthusiastic doctors. You can of course still elect to see your chosen regular doctor but sometimes this may require you to plan your appointment.

We have been a training practice for several years and the feedback from patients regarding our registrars has been overwhelmingly positive. The doctors tend to be in the surgery for around 12 months, becoming an integral part of the practice team and an invaluable resource for patients.
