Practice Team

Practice Manager

The practice manager has overall responsibility for non-clinical matters and is here to ensure the smooth running of the practice. If you have a problem with the service you have received or any suggestions for improvements to the services we offer, please do not hesitate to contact our Practice Manager, Ms Debbie Short.


Our receptionists are here to help you obtain the best possible service from the practice. In order to do this, they sometimes need to judge the urgency of your request and may need to ask you a few questions.

Please rest assured that the rules of confidentiality apply equally to all practice staff. A brief explanation of your problem may enable them to suggest the right person for advice, or offer the most suitable appointment. Please help them to help you.
