Our Team

Partners

A surgery is normally run as a Partnership, consisting of at least one GP supported by other GPs, and/or nurses or other healthcare staff. The Partnership will have signed a contract with NHS England which covers the provision of services, management of patients, and clinical responsibility for all of the patients within a defined catchment area. The Partners also manage the practice staff, the finances and the administrative work associated with running the practice.

Doctors

Although your General Practitioner (GP) doesn’t need to be your first point of contact if you're feeling unwell, everyone should be registered with a GP. Your GP can give you medical advice, treatment and prescribe medication. They can also refer you to other healthcare professionals to diagnose or treat specific aspects of your condition. For example, they may refer you to a chiropodist, for a hearing test, or to your local falls prevention service. These other health professionals may visit you at home or hold clinics at a local practice, health centre or hospital. If you have a long-term condition, your GP should help you understand and manage your own care. This may include drawing up a care plan to help you manage your condition on a day-to-day basis and recognise symptoms that you should report to your GP.

Advanced Nurse Practitioners

ANPs are educated at masters level in advanced practice and are assessed as competent in practice, using expert knowledge and skills. There is very little that ANPs are not allowed to do according to the law. They can assess a patient, make a diagnosis and provide treatment, just like a doctor. However they do this within a clearly defined scope of practice that is agreed with their employer, and the level of medical complexity that they deal with is usually less than that of a doctor. ANPs in primary care and the community are able to develop close, long-term relationships with their patients and work in partnership with them to help them achieve their optimum level of health. Examples of these skills and competencies include, but are not limited to, the ability to undertake a comprehensive and sophisticated physical and/or mental health assessment of patients with complex multiple healthcare needs and/or in crisis, interpret the results of multiple different assessments and investigations in order to make a diagnosis, and plan and deliver care, confidently and competently make ethical, evidence based decisions and interventions when faced with complexity and assess and manage the risk associated with these decisions., prescribe and work with individuals to manage their medicines, work independently but also as part of a multi-disciplinary team and exercise values based leadership, plan and provide skilled and competent care to meet a patient’s health and social care needs involving or referring on to other members of the healthcare team as appropriate.
