The Primary Health Care Team
The doctors, nurses and other members of the team work together to provide the best possible care and treatment for patients in the light of current methods and practice. They meet frequently to discuss patients' clinical problems. Each member of the team is well aware of the expertise of his fellow workers and frequently seeks another opinion or their advice.

All our receptionists have been trained and many of them are very experienced and will be able to answer most of your queries. Anything you tell them will be treated in absolute confidence. If you are unsure whether to consult your doctor, nurse or health visitor etc, the receptionist will be able to advise you.
If you are in doubt about anything ask the receptionist. If she does not know the answer she will ask someone who does. A brief explanation of your problem may enable them to suggest the right person for advice, or offer the most suitable appointment. Please help them to help you.
