Practice Staff

Administrative Staff

Our practice manager is Claire Edwards. She is responsible for the overall smooth running of the practice. Mrs Edwards will be able to help you with any non-medical or administrative aspects of your health and treatment. We have numerous administrative personnel - receptionists, medical secretaries, data input clerk, notes summariser and an assistant practice manager. All these ladies have undergone training either in-service or through the auspices of AMSPAR, the medical administrators’ professional body. They are therefore ready to help you. We hope you will feel able to make good use of their skills, thus enabling us to provide you with the best possible service. All our administrators are taught to keep all information held regarding our patients in strictest confidence.
