We have a new Advanced Nurse Practitioner working within the surgery, Gill Elder. Some patients may already know Gill as she has often holds a nursing clinic here at the practice on a Saturday morning.
Gill will have clinics throughout the week, mainly Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Gill will have routine appointments available as well as urgent appointments which will help to alleviate some of the pressure on the on call doctor.
We currently have Dr Patel with us for the foreseeable future. Our other locum GP, Dr Watson, will be leaving the practice in mid July.
In August we will have a registrar working at the practice which should help with the demand for routine appointments. We will also have a medical student joining us at the practice for 4 weeks.
