Miss Julie Taylor
Practice Manager

Julie Taylor manages all business aspects of the practice including finance, patient safety, premises and equipment, human resources and information technology. The Practice Manager supports the GPs and other medical professionals to ensure delivery of high quality patient services.

Receptionists

The Receptionists are there to help you – they are your initial link with the doctor or nurse. As there are only so many appointments available during any one clinic session, please be patient and remember that they have a very difficult job; they have to please both you and the doctors!  They are trained to ask information from patients and are fully aware of the need to keep information confidential. Please cooperate with them if they ask you for details of your illness or problem.
