Surgery and staff

We are a fully computerised practice with 6 consultation rooms, waiting room and admin area. We have a vast array of patient information leaflets available and on display.

Thanks to the generosity of staff and patients, as well as sponsored events we are able to provide diagnostic and resuscitation facilities on site.

Reception staff: Our experienced staff have a busy and difficult job. They sometimes have to ask for medical details to help them assess the urgency of your request. Please ask if you wish to speak in a more private area.

At times the switchboard and reception are very busy – we appreciate your patience whilst staff deal with other people’s queries.

  • Make a diagnosis
  • Refer you for test or investigations
  • Give you a prescription
  • When necessary they will refer you to other members of the primary health care team or to a consultant if more specialist care is needed
