Medical Students

We are a teaching practice and have qualified doctors working with us for various periods of time. On occasions we also have Medical Students in the Practice who may be present whilst you consult your own Doctor. If you prefer to see the Doctor in private, please say so - it will not cause offence. The Community Nurses and Health Visitors also have regular commitments to teaching Nursing and Health Visitor Students who are on placements from Oxford Brookes University.


The nurses treat patients for minor injuries, travel advice/immunisation, pre-school checks/immunisations, lifestyle advice including smoking and obesity monitoring, smear tests, family planning and sexual health matters. All of our practice nurses will also provide chronic disease management.

What one of us can't deal with we are always willing to pass on to the right person who can, there is rarely an occasion we don't have an answer or solution. We love working together and seeing so many of you that have come through our doors over the years.
