We are very sad to announce that Dr Justin Lawson & Dr Sue Picton have now left our practice.
Dr Lawson will be pursing his medical career throughout the prison service
Dr Picton will be continuing her medical career with her skill of training GP Registrars
Both partners have been an integral part of the practice and will be hugely missed by staff and patients.
We wish them both well for the future

Receptionists provide an important link for patients with the practice and are your initial contact point for general enquiries. They can provide basic information on services and results and They are trained to signpost you to the most appropriate clinical member of staff or service that you require. The reception team 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 and patient registration.
Receptionists require access to your medical records in order to do their jobs. They, like all members of our staff (medical, admin, secretarial) within the practice, are bound by the same rules of confidentiality and have a legal duty to protect your information and privacy.
Duties include GP referrals to hospitals.
