About us

Our practice, and its location, lends itself to a wonderful quality of life. Easy access to the coast and beautiful surrounding villages. Strong emphasis on work-life balance.

We are a small friendly practice of 5100 patients, with the added benefit of being a dispensing practice. GP administration burden has been reduced through an in-house workflow administrator who processes all paperwork for scanning and coding. In addition, we have additional remote GP telephone appointments, as well as an in-house clinical pharmacist and first-contact physio provided through the PCN.

We have strong relationships with the PCN, including a community rehabilitation team, district nurses, an integrated frailty team, pharmacy technicians and have access to the local community hospital but are not required to staff it.

Monthly virtual ward meetings and close contact with hospice nurses for palliative care patients, means we have multidisciplinary input as needed. We have a daily catch-up over coffee and as a small practice, it is easy to discuss patients with colleagues.

The duty day is run by our two fantastic ANPs, freeing the routine slots up for GPs. So, duty GP really involves being available for support and actioning anything urgent, but otherwise running the routine surgery.
