We have a number of other health workers who are attached to the practice who you may see from time to time. These include: District Nurses, Health Visitors, Mental Health Workers, Midwives, a Community matron and a palliative care (MacMillan Nurse). We also have in-house counselling and physiotherapy services.
Occasionally we employ doctors from outside our practice to provide extra surgeries or to cover when our usual doctors are away. All these doctors are fully qualified and have some years’ experience working in General Practice. You will be informed at the time of making your appointment that the doctor you are seeing is a locum and whether they are male or female.
We usually have one or more young doctors working with us who are gaining additional experience in general practice. You are able to make an appointment with them as with any of the other doctors.
We are a teaching practice and have medical students from the University of Leeds sitting in on surgeries and clinics. They gain valuable learning by sitting in during consultations but if you wish to see the doctor alone please tell the receptionist or doctor. A sign on the reception desk will inform you when a doctor has a medical student sitting in with them.
