Practice Manager

Mrs Viv George is our Practice Manager and is responsible for the overall organisation and administration of the practice. If you have any suggestions that you feel would improve the services we offer, please let the Manager know. If you have any complaints about the service we provide, please let the Manager know in writing.

We also have Registrar Doctors with us who are doing their GP training. A GP Registrar is a fully qualified Doctor who has worked within different hospitals. They join the practice in order to get experience in a GP practice in order to pass their exams. They are not shadowed by the Doctor during consultation; however they will discuss your problem with the GP’s if they feel that your problem is complex.

Our current registrar doctors with us are

Dr Clarkson (F) with us until August 2019.

Dr Kisku (F) with us until February 2019.
