We sometimes employ doctors from outside our practice to provide extra surgeries. All these doctors are fully qualified and have experience working in General Practice. We will be inform you when you make your appointment that the doctor you are seeing is a locum and whether they are male or female.
Other Clinical Staff
Teaching Practice – Medical Students
We are a teaching practice and occasionally have medical students from the University of Leeds sitting in on surgeries and clinics. They gain valuable learning by sitting in during consultations but if you wish to see the doctor alone please tell the receptionist or doctor. A sign on the reception desk will inform you when a doctor has a medical student sitting in with them.
Our receptionists are here to help you and will deal with requests for appointments, visits and repeat prescriptions. However, we do ask you to accept that they sometimes have the difficult job of trying to keep both the doctors and the patients happy. All problems are dealt with in confidence.
