Please note that all patients now have a named allocated GP. The named GP is usually the GP you are registered with. If you are unsure who this is or wish to request a specific GP, please contact Reception.
We are a GP training practice and our current GP trainees are Dr. Gary Lawrence (supervised by Dr. Tutty) and Dr. Rowe (supervised by Dr. Dawson). If you are struggling to get a routine appointment about an ongoing problem and your usual doctor is Dr. Tutty or Dr. Dawson, it may be helpful to book an appointment with their GP trainee instead, who will be able to personally discuss your case with their supervisor.

Carley Wilkinson is Practice Manager who is in overall charge of the 22 non-medical support staff, comprised of Departmental Managers, Receptionists, Secretaries, Apprentices, Pharmacy Technicians and Cleaners.
The Administration Department works separately to the Reception Team. They work hard and strive to invite patients for routine screening appointments, deal with the large number of notes that flow through the surgery and deal with all documents entering the surgery, to name but a few of their many tasks.
Our Receptionists are trained to give you a helpful service, but to do so they need accurate information. This ensures we remain efficient and prevents mistakes being made. Please try to remember that they have a difficult job trying to fit a maximum number of patients into the working day, hence their need to question you closely to establish the degree of urgency. All our staff are bound by the same rules of confidentiality as the Doctors.
Secretarial Team - Our secretaries deal with the large number of patient referrals that are made to the many areas of the health service. They strive to process these as efficiently and as quickly as possible with the information that they are given. The have many other tasks within their role.
