Our receptionists' aim is to help you as much as possible. Their job is difficult but if you tell them clearly what you require they will do their best to help. When dealing with your requests for medical attention they may ask for a few details, they are trained to make these enquiries so that we can help you in the most appropriate way. Our receptionists can also give you general information about the practice. They have a difficult job - so please be a patient patient!!!
The health visitors provide care to families with children in the pre-five age group. The assessment process is changing and nowadays only rigid assessment is made at eight weeks.
Our health visitors are Karen Ross and Laura Coyle, Lorraine Baillie and Sarah Corbett.
Our district nurses Eleanor Campbell and May Cameron provide nursing treatment for the housebound and patients recently discharged from the hospital.
The practice is involved in undergraduate Medical Education. Occasionally students may sit in during a consultation. Patients will always be forewarned and you are always free to let the receptionists know if this is not suitable.
