Changing NHS   Updates on clinical staff...

Dr Ghazi and Dr Martin are now partners in charge of the surgery following the retirement of Dr Kelsey. Dr Afridi and Dr Finlay are salaried doctors and we have a new Doctor, Anthony Tasou who started in July, part time. We are looking for another GP to increase our appointment availability.

We have two Nurse Practitioners, Barbara and Sue, and they are proving to be very popular. They can do most things that a GP would do, including prescriptions and if any issues arise they readily consult with the doctors to make the best decisions.
