GPs & Physician Associates

We welcome your feedback. If you would like to comment about our surgery or staff, you can do so on the NHS website, or iWantGreatCare. This last website also allows you to comment about individual doctors, which can help them reflect on your experience.

Our GPs are part-time and work a dedicated number of sessions at the practice, offering continuity of care to our patients. Each GP can tend to have their own particular clinical interests, which can complement each other as a team. The GP Partner has more involvement in the management of the whole practice. We also have some Sessional GPs who do adhoc sessions at the practice. Our GPs are dedicated to support patients in the management of long-term conditions through traditional medicine and innovative approaches.

You are welcomed to book with any GP of your choice, but this is subject to availability.

For more urgent problems, it is less likely that the practice can offer your choice of doctor at short-notice and you are more likely to have contact with the on-call GP at that time.

Members of the GP team are:
