NEW Practice Pharmacist

Heather Call, our new Practice Pharmacist joined the surgery in June 2016.  Heather is here to assist the Practice Team in all areas relating to medicine.  Heather is also available to speak with patients for any medication queries.  If you would like to speak to Heather, please book a telephone appointment.  This appointment will be booked on a Monday, Wednesday or Friday morning.


The practice employs a number of Emergency nurses and nurse Practitioners who are registered nurses with extra training in advanced Nursing practice. They are able to see emergencies, take your history, diagnose and treat a broad range of medical problems, working closely with the Emergency doctor for support and prescribe medication if necessary.


Practice nurses are highly trained registered nurses involved in almost all aspects of patient care and treatment. They undertake more complex nursing tasks such as blood tests, urine tests, injections, major wound care, minor surgery and ear assessment. In addition, they run specialist clinics including diabetes, respiratory, coronary heart disease, adult/child vaccines, leg clubs/ulcers, women's health and promotion of health care.


As a large, progressive practice we take part in national and international clinical trials, to further clinical knowledge and contribute to major scientific publications. All the trials done at the practice have national and local ethical approval and are selected so as to benefit our patients, as well as being important studies in their own right. All our GPs take an active role in recruiting patients for clinical research.


We have a strong team of Health Care Assistants who give care under the guidance of the registered nurses. They have skills in blood taking; INR/Warfarin monitoring; ECG (Echocardiogram) and Blood Pressure monitoring; health checks/promotion; chronic disease management; urine tests and specimen collection; minor surgery support; ear syringing; simple wound care; smoking cessation; flu vaccine and B12 injections.
