All patients have a named GP who is responsible for their overall care at the practice. If you don’t know who that is you can contact us to know who this is, and if you have a preference as to which GP that is, we will make reasonable efforts to accommodate this request. We do not restrict you to ‘only’ seeing your named GP, nor can we guarantee the availability of a specific GP on the days when you are seen.
The named accountable GP will take lead responsibility for the coordination of all services required under our contract with NHS England and ensure they are delivered to each of their patients where required (based on the clinical judgment of the named accountable GP). They will also coordinate your care with all the other providers involved in your care.
GP Registrar and Trainees
We are a training practice and we regularly have other Doctors training at the practice. A Registrar is a fully qualified doctor undertaking specialist vocational training as a GP and generally is with us for a 6 or 12 month period.
We also train F2 doctors from Weston General Hospital. These are qualified doctors on a 4 month rotation through various hospital posts and at this GP surgery for further training.
From time to time will be hosting visiting Medical Students.

The Support Team
|Assistant Practice Manager
The practice manager is responsible for the efficient administration of the practice. All our Receptionists and Medical Secretarial Support staff are fully trained. Their job is to help you and to ensure that the doctor can see you with as few interruptions as possible. Please be patient if you have to wait a few minutes at the reception desk or for the telephone to be answered.
In addition to providing general nursing, our Nurses also perform blood pressure checks and take samples for lab, perform smear tests, ear syringing and childhood immunisations etc.
They run a variety of health promotion clinics including: chronic heart disease, weight reduction, diabetes, Cardiovascular and respiratory. Please ask reception if you would like to attend one of these clinics. If the nurse/HCA detects a problem at a clinic they will liaise with a doctor.
Our Nurses can also give advice on foreign travel as well as administering the necessary vaccinations with the exception of yellow fever. A charge is made for some travel vaccinations.
The practice nurses are supported by a health care assistant (who takes certain clinics, changes dressings, blood pressure checks and blood tests) and a phlebotomist (blood tests).
A team of community nurses, (including Community Ward leads, District Nurses and Rapid Response and Recovery nurses all supported by HCA’s), provide general nursing care such as injections, dressings, bathing and advice on all medical matters for those Housebound patients unable to attend the surgery. They can be contacted through Care Connect on 01934 888 801 between 8.00am and 6.00pm.
A team of health visitors, deal with a variety of health problems with particular emphasis on health promotion and preventative medicine. They provide postnatal care and also give advice to the elderly and handicapped. Their telephone number is 01275 885601 between 9.00am and 5.00pm.
The midwife runs our antenatal clinics and looks after the mother before and just after the baby is born. Appointments for the midwife are made at reception.
