For a modestly sized practice, we have a relatively large number of doctors and nurses.

This enables us to offer choice, as well as a wide range of skills.

We all participate in regular appraisal and proactively seek to improve our skills.

Our Midwife

Mrs Jill Abbott is our community midwife. She is involved in the care of expectant mothers, new-born babies and their mothers. She holds clinics in the surgery and also visits mothers in their own homes for at least the first ten days after they have had their baby.

District Nurses

The community or district nurses generally care for those who are unable to attend the surgery for nursing treatment. The nursing care given by the community nurses allows people to stay in their own homes who might otherwise need to go into hospital. They also provide care in the surgery.

If available, the District Nurse will speak to you directly; otherwise the receptionist will take a message and the District Nurse will contact you as soon as possible.
