Practice Management

Dr Ian Williams is our Managing Partner. If you have any ideas or suggestions for improving the service we offer, he will be pleased to hear from you. We will always listen to what you say and take the opportunity to put things right.

Practice Team

The doctors work closely with other members of the team to provide the highest quality of care possible, and are committed to promote the development of the team which includes practice-based nurses, health-care assistants and counsellors.

Nursing Team

All the nurses are surgery-based and have some common areas of overlap, for example immunisations, dressings and patient assessments, but each branch has certain specialities:-

Practice Nurses provide general health screening, ear syringing, travel injections and advice, tetanus injections, cervical smear test, dressing/wound care and general advice and counselling. They managed illnesses such as Asthma and Diabetes, Coronary Heart Disease and Stroke. Members of the Practice Nurse team have special interests in Triage, Asthma, Diabetes, control of long-term medication and family planning & the well woman.

We have a Triage Nurse who is a Nurse Prescriber. She will assess and treat minor illness and liaise with the doctor over care if the need arises.

Health Care Assistants provide phlebotomy services, general health screening, warfarin blood testing, ecg's, stop smoking and obesity management as well as suture and clip removal and some simple dressings. They will also undertake some injections such as flu, pneumonia and B12.

Counsellors are available for those patients requiring extra time and help to work at specific problems. Referrals via GP's or other team members.

The Admin Team

Make appointments, raise general queries, obtain test results, and other information including waiting list details from our Receptionists and Admin Team, who are there to ensure your visit to the surgery is as pleasant as possible. They keep strict confidence so please give them as much information as possible, enabling them to deal with your individual needs quickly, efficiently and sympathetically.
