Reception

Uzma Butt
Head Receptionist

Receptionists provide an important link for patients with the practice and are your initial contact point for general enquiries; they can provide basic information on services and results and direct you to the right person depending on your health issue or query.

Receptionists make most of the patient appointments with the GPs and nurses.

They also perform other important tasks such as issuing repeat prescriptions and dealing with prescription enquiries, dealing with financial claims, dealing with patient records and carrying out searches and practice audits.

Training Practice

GP Registrars

The practice usually has the benefit of one or more doctors training in general practice.

After substantial time spent working in hospital they spend a year with us before entering independent practice.

They are available for consultation in the same way as the other doctors in the practice.


Medical Students

Occasionally we may have medical students who sit with the doctor or nurse during consultations.

You will be notified in advance if a student is going to be present and have the choice of requesting that they leave before the consultation begins.
