The administrative team gives essential support to the clinicians to enable the practice to run smoothly, and ensure our patients receive the best possible care at all times. They provide the link between patients and clinicians, making sure all information is accurate, up to date and available when needed. This is not always an easy task, and is one which benefits from a degree of understanding at times. Your tolerance is appreciated.

All staff are qualified and trained for their particular role, working within practice protocols and guidelines. If any difficulties arise with any member of the practice team please contact the practice manager.

The Administrative staff are bound by the same rules of confidentiality as the doctors and nurses.
