The practice is situated in a small market town by the sea. It is a popular tourist and retirement area that means we have a high number of temporary residents and also the practice population has a higher proportion of older people than average.
We have a strong training ethos: although we are not able to take cohorts of GP undergraduates because of restricted space, we do take single undergrads from Imperial College and we also host student pharmacists, student nurses and young people on work experience.
Our four Nurse Practitioners all work at advanced practitioner level, seeing and treating patients. As well as our two Practice Nurses, we have a Specialist Respiratory Nurse and three Health Care Assistants.
The local District Hospital is within 300 metres and we provide medical cover for a local community hospital.
We will hopefully be moving to new premises at the end of 2016 which will enable us to expand our training commitment and will help us to focus our future services for the continued well-being of our patients.
