They are qualified smear takers and offer sexual health checks. They also provide child health  checks to all our 4 year olds, and do free annual diabetes patient checks.


Our Administration staff:

Our receptionists, are here to greet you from 8am to 5pm each weekday.

You will find they are friendly personalities who will soon get to know you and welcome you by name. Feel free to ask them if you have any questions or concerns.

Medical Centre Assistant

The medical centre assistant (MCA) is a new role that supports the clinical team by completing some of the non-clinical tasks normally done by nurses. This can include checking your height, weight and blood pressure as well as ordering stock and sterilising equipment. The MCA may well be the first person you see after the receptionist if you need some basic observations taken.


Practice Manager

Our Practice Manager, Anne Hall, is responsible for the day to running of the Practice and is always on hand to make sure things run smoothly.

Please contact her if you have any enquiries about fees or billing, concerns about the service you have received, or even if you want to compliment any of our team.
