Practice Staff

All patients are required to have a named GP (doctor) who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that the surgery provides to them.

Having a named GP does not prevent you from seeing any GP in the practice, but we would encourage you to see this GP where possible if you are likely to require regular appointments for ongoing issues. You can see below our current list of doctors.
