Our Team

The practice manager and practice administration staff are all here to help you make the best use of the services which we provide. They attend initial and continued training programmes in order to provide an efficient and friendly service.

We believe they have a difficult job and it is only with their help that the doctors can organise their work and see as many patients as possible in the time available.

We welcome any suggestions for improving our services. If you have any ideas, questions or complaints, please speak to our practice manager or, in her absence, please speak to her deputy.
