Who will treat you?
Who you see at the practice depends on what medical care you need. There are a range of professionals at the practice or affiliated to it, and many have a specialist area of knowledge. The practice has a high proportion of women doctors, so if you prefer to see a female GP, let us know when you register or book your appointment.
For minor medical issues you can see a nurse practitioner as an alternative to the doctor. The surgery’s nurse practitioners can diagnose, treat, and prescribe medication for some illnesses. If you are not sure if a nurse practitioner could see you about your illness, ask the receptionist, who will be able to advise you.
For those who are too sick to come to the surgery or too elderly to attend, the doctor may arrange for a medical professional to visit you at home.
