They must deal with enquiries from all directions, frequently simultaneously, and we would ask you to be patient. The team comprises Julie A, June, Sandy, Mary, Debbie, Julie F, Louise, Faye, Pat.


Our team of secretarial and clerical staff provide administrative support for the practice, releasing reception and clinical staff to devote their time to patients.
