Dear Patients

Just a little update from us

You have probably already talked to our new reception staff who are learning the ropes during very difficult times. Bella, Lara, Renee and Callum.  A great bunch of people very dedicated and here to help you.

We were also lucky this year to have recruited  a new nurse, Amy.  If you had a chance to meet her, she is lovely.  She comes from a hospital background and is learning what it takes to be a practice nurse.  Julie is  sharing all her knowledge during training. Amy is doing a great job and we hope you guys get a chance to meet her at some stage.

Thanks to everyone for being so patient with our staff during this year
