Your GP Practice – meet the team

Your GP practice is here to ensure you get the right care from the right healthcare professional at the right time.

The practice team is made up of a range of healthcare professionals with the expertise to help treat a range of conditions.

You might not always need to see a GP. Our nurses, pharmacists, physiotherapists and healthcare assistants are all trained professionals who can diagnose and treat a range of conditions, helping you to get advice or treatment sooner.

Here you can find out more about our dedicated practice team:

  • Reception team and Care Navigators are trained to know about the care and services available to you. They’ll talk to you in confidence about your health problem and book you an appointment with the right healthcare professional or service at the right time.
  • Advanced Practitioners (including nurses, paramedics and physiotherapists) are qualified professionals who have undergone additional specialist training and are able to assess, treat, diagnose, refer and prescribe medication.
  • Practice nurses support many long-term conditions, run clinics and health checks and can treat minor health problems and injuries.
  • Healthcare assistants can assist with a range of clinical duties, for example, taking blood samples, blood pressure checks and ECGs under the guidance of the wider healthcare professional team.
  • Social prescribers work in partnership with GP practices and can help connect you to local community services and support networks to help you have more control over your health and wellbeing. This might include introducing you to a community group, a new activity or local club. Or they might help you find legal advice or debt counselling. They can assist you with finding relevant information and guidance.
Everyone who works for a GP practice is covered by the same codes of confidentiality.
