GP Registrars

GP registrars are qualified doctors who are planning a career in general practice. They will be attached to the practice for a period of 12 months and will hold their own surgeries under appropriate supervision of Drs Chin and Ross. When you ring for an appointment you may be offered an appointment with one of the registrars. Sometimes the registrars may ask to video your consultation. These videos will be used for training purposes only and not for any other reason.

They have appointments throughout the day and are available outside the usual surgery times of the doctors, ie 11:00 to 15:00. They work across both sites.

Receptionists make most of the patient appointments with the GPs and nurses. They also perform other important tasks such as issuing repeat prescriptions and dealing with prescription enquiries, dealing with financial claims, dealing with patient records and carrying out searches and practice audits.
