The Surgery occasionally has Students attached to the practice for short periods. You may be asked if it is acceptable that they are present during your Consultation.
We are also fortunate at the present time to have an F2 with us. F2s are qualified doctors who are gaining experience in General practice. They are supervised by one of the Partners who is their trainer.
We are trying to limit A&E attendances to those who really need this service. You can help by ensuring you use your local GP practice as your first point of contact. Thank you for your co-operation.
