This practice is currently registered to offer our patients newly fully qualified 2nd year foundation doctors (FY2) which may from time to time be working in the practice.
These qualified doctors are gaining experience of general practice before finalising their specialty pathway. These doctors will have slightly longer consulting times.
If you would like to see the FY2 doctor please let the receptionist know.
If you would prefer to see one of our regular GPs and would not like to see an FY2 doctor please let the receptionist know.
