The practice is a training practice with a Practice Registrar - a fully trained doctor who is receiving additional training in General Practice. Video surgeries form part of the continuing training of the Registrar and you may be asked if you will consent to have your consultation recorded.

THE PRACTICE TEAM

The Practice Nurse

Our practice nurse, Sophia Polatol, is available by appointment Tuesday and Wednesday morning and all day Thursay. She runs many of our Health Promotion Clinics including our COPD, asthma and diabetic clinics and also carries out cervical screening. We also have a health care assistant, Julie Clough, who works Tuesday, Thursday and Friday mornings.

The Practice Manager and the Administration Team

Our practice manager, Diane Magrath, and the administration team are here to help and guide you. They are bound by a code of strict confidentiality and have been trained to take essential details sympathetically. This allows them to inform the doctors of important information about patients' queries.

The Midwife

We provide an antenatal clinic in the practice on Thursday afternoons.

The District Nurses

The district nurses provide home nursing care and services for patients who are unable to attend the practice. Please do not request the services of our district nurses if you are able to attend the practice. District nurses are not employed by the practice but can be organised if required.
