Advanced Practitioners (AP) are highly qualified practitioners who have received extensive, additional training to provide an advanced level of patient care. Our AP is an excellent resource within the surgery, working alongside GP’s. AP’s work within a defined scope of practice and can assess, diagnose, treat and refer, just like a doctor.

Practice Nurses treat and advise patients on self-care for the management of short term and long term conditions. Amongst a wide range of services, Practice Nurses give vaccinations / immunisations, carry out smear tests and annual reviews. Our Practice Nurse is also trained in minor illness and holds a daily minor illness clinic for suitable conditions.
Healthcare Assistants (HCA) support the clinical team in the service and delivery of medical care within the practice. Our HCA conducts some annual reviews of long term conditions, will carry out tests such as blood pressure checks and gives certain vaccinations.
The Practice Manager is responsible for the overall smooth running of the practice. Responsibilities include HR, business and finance management and the first point of contact for any comments or complaints. Please speak to the Practice Manager if you have any queries or concerns about any aspect of your care or the practice. Our Practice Manager is contactable at the surgery on the usual telephone number or by email on firstname.lastname@example.org
Our administration team are responsible for the admin requirements on the surgery. Our secretaries process referrals and type letters. They also deal with the administration process of providing medical reports to solicitors and insurance companies upon request. Our scanners and coders deal with clinical coding and scanning of patient letters into patient records. Our receptionists are responsible for making appointments, processing prescription requests, ordering ambulances and taking messages. They have a demanding role and therefore we ask that our patients are respectful to our receptionists both at the desk and on the telephone - they are here to help you! We request that our receptionists ask for a brief description of your problem so that they can book you an appointment with the right person, at the right time. It may be that a specific clinician is trained in a certain field (i.e. contraception options) or that you may need a double appointment if you have more than one problem to discuss. Giving our receptionists this information helps us to book you in to the system accordingly. If however you do feel that the nature of your problem is very private and do not wish to disclose it to the receptionist, we will respect this. All our reception staff are bound by the strictest of confidentiality rules. The surgery takes any breach of confidentiality very seriously and will act accordingly should it be reported.
