The clinical team is headed by Dr Veena Sharma who has worked here for more than 30 years. Dr Sharma is supported by regular locum GPs and two practice nurses. Our health care assistant position is currently vacant but we are continuing with phlebotomy services. These clinicians are supported by the reception, administration, cleaning and management staff, who play a valuable role in assuring the smooth running of the practice. Please read our Practice Information leaflet for further information.
Our website is designed to provide our patients with clear and concise information about our services. It also provides details of the active Patient Participation Group that works closely with the practice to help us in our aim to provide the best possible service.
If you would like to receive regular communications from the Practice, including the opportunity to respond to patient surveys, please fill in the form at reception and provide us with your email address.
We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format.
