Practice Staff

Practice Manager

Mrs Janet Edwards

Our practice manager is responsible for all aspects of the day to day running of the surgery. If you have any suggestions for an improved service, any concerns or complaints, please address them to her.


Our team of receptionists are trained to help you and are bound by the same code of confidentiality as the Doctors and Nurses. At times they may need to ask you certain relevant medical details at times in order to allow the right amount of time for appointments, advise who might be the best person to see initially etc.

Their job is a difficult one - mutual courtesy will ‘oil the wheels’!
