MULTI-DISCIPLINARY TEAM
We now have a Physiotherapist, Clinical Pharmacist, Community Link Worker & soon to have a Mental Health Practitioner based at the surgery. Our dedicated team of Patient Advisors have now all been fully trained in sign-posting so they will ask for brief details on the reason you wish to make an appointment in order that they book the most appropriate clinician for you.
