All doctors must undergo an apprenticeship comprising a three-year post-graduate training, including one year of GP experience in a training practice. We are an accredited training practice; all our registrars are qualified doctors who have undergone five years' medical school training, passing all the necessary exams. They are fully able to deal with all your problems. They are usually attached to the practice for one year.
Practice nurses are qualified and registered nurses. They can help with health issues such as family planning, healthy living advice, blood pressure checks and dressings. The practice nurses run clinics for long-term health conditions such as asthma or diabetes, minor ailment clinics and carry out cervical smears.
Clinical pharmacists work as part of the general practice team to improve value and outcomes from medicines and consult with and treat patients directly. This includes providing extra help to manage long-term conditions, advice for those on multiple medicines and better access to health checks. The role is pivotal to improving the quality of care and ensuring patient safety.
Healthcare assistants support practice nurses with their daily work and carry out tasks such as phlebotomy, blood pressure measurement and a range of other services. They may act as a chaperone when a patient or doctor requests one.
The Practice/Business Manager is involved in managing all of the business aspects of the Practice such as making sure that the right systems are in place to provide a high quality of patient care, human resources, finance, patient safety, premises and equipment and information technology. The Practice Manager supports the GPs and other medical professionals with delivering patient services and also helps to develop extended services to enhance patient care.
