All the doctors perform general medical duties and have special interests in specific fields of medicine.  You can see any doctor of your choice on the days they are available.  At times your doctor may advise you to seek advice from, or refer you to, a specific doctor for certain medical problems. This is ensure you get the best treatment possible. You can enquire about this with the reception staff when making an appointment. They will be able to inform you as to which doctor would be ideal for you for your specific problem.

We also employ additional locum doctors from time to time. Locum doctors are fully qualified General Practitioners who fill in gaps of leave or absence when your doctor is not available. All locum Doctors comply with GMC regulations.
