The practice helps patients to manage their health and prevent illness. GP’s assess, diagnose, treat and manage illness.

The GP’s also provide the link to further health services and work closely with other healthcare colleagues. They also arrange hospital admissions and referrals to other services and specialists and link with secondary and community services about patient care, taking advice and sharing information where needed. GP’s collect and record important information from other healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of our patients.

Our GP’s are also involved in the education and training of doctors, trainee medical students, practice staff and other healthcare professionals who work for the practice.
