Reception

Provide a professional reception and administrative service to patients. Our staff make your appointments, take requests for home visits or emergency care, prepare your repeat prescription requests, and deal with many telephone enquiries and with significant levels of record keeping and secretarial work. Their job is considerably more complex than is commonly thought. It is often extremely difficult for this team to meet patient demand when the capacity is limited. As a result, they are generally very busy and this sometimes affects their ability to deal with individual routine requests in the desired timescale. They will, however, help you as quickly and as courteously as they can. We ask you to be patient and courteous in return!

MARIANNE ALLAN

The Patient Services Manager is responsible for the day-to-day supervision of the reception team and the efficient operation of the reception and records office.

Physiotherapists

Advanced Physiotherapy Practitioners (APP) see patients (age 16 and over only) at the Practice for a range of musculoskeletal issues such as sprains, strains, sports injuries, joint pain and stiffness, sore back/neck, arthritis and muscle, ligament, tendon or bone problems. These appointments are 20 minutes long and are an alternative to seeing a GP, for assessment and diagnosis as well as advice, support and exercises. These appointments aren’t for ongoing treatment, but they can refer patients on to physio and secondary care, as well as for further investigation including X-ray.
