Fond Farewell

It's a fond goodbye and happy retirement to Diane Paulley our senior receptionist who leaves us at Easter following 6 years with us.  She will be sorely missed.


Welcome to new staff

We offer a warm welcome to Beverley Brooks who joins our reception team.  She brings with her a wealth of administration experience and we hope she settles in well with us.

Also Leanne Harvey joins us in mid-April as our new Practice Nurse.  Leanne is coming from A&E at Yeovil Hospital and is looking forward to the different challenges that practice nursing brings and to meeting and getting to know our patients.


Named GP

All of our patients have a 'named GP' responsible for their care.  This is largely a role of oversight, with the NHS requirements being introduced to reassure patients that they have one GP within the practice who is responsible for ensuring that this work is carried out on their behalf. If you would like to know who your named GP is, then please ask at reception.  Patients are still free to choose to see any GP or nurse in the practice in line with current arrangements.

The named GP will not:

  • take on vicarious responsibility for the work of other doctors or health professionals
  • take on 24-hour responsibility for the patient, or have to change their working hours. The requirement does not imply personal availability for GPs throughout the working week
  • be the only GP or clinician who will provide care to that patient
