Who’s Who in our Nursing Team

Online Advanced Nurse Practitioner/Doctor Appointment

If you don’t yet have online access, you can sign-in online here as a test patient and view live appointment dates and times to help your planning

All patients are registered with a named senior.  Their work focuses on the regular follow-up of patients with long term or complex medical conditions and their appointments are booked in advance.  The rest of our medical and nursing team works in close collaboration with your named GP.

We allocate your named GP when you register with us to adhere to NHS England requirements.

If you are usually fit and well, we would suggest that you use the Pharmacy First service, or see our Advanced Nurse Practitioner or one of our speciality training doctors first.

It is usually much easier to get a fast, convenient appointment with these members of the team in the first instance.  They are able to see, diagnose and treat the majority of medical conditions

In more complex cases, they will initiate appropriate investigations and arrange input from your named senior GP.

Please feel free to ask these members of the team to discuss your case with your named GP, if this would help you.

If you have complex long term conditions, please see other members of the team for any immediate, pressing problems and also book to see a GP regularly so that we can ensure that we provide optimal continuity of care to you.

We strongly encourage all our patients to search for UK-based, reliable information on your symptoms/condition via this website and to look through the Self Help Information page before you attend

This will help you and your doctor to ‘be on the same page’ in sharing decisions about investigations and treatment options and help us to provide our highest quality of care to you

Please do note down any questions you might have and we will be only too pleased to answer these when we meet
