Meet your Practice Team
Your GP practice is open and here for you and your family.
In order to provide the right care at the right time, all GP practices are changing how they work. In a GP practice you will now find a wider team of specialists and professionals working together to help and care for you. The larger practice team is designed to best manage the very busy workload and the range of health needs that people have. You may get referred to the most appropriate member of the team to provide the support you need.

We hope that you will co-operate with us and help the students to learn about general practice.
