Reception Managers

Mrs Nicola Salmond (f)

Mrs Samantha Graves (f)


Other support staff include receptionists and administrators. We are all here to help you. When telephoning for medical attention the receptionist may ask for a few details. They have been trained to make these enquiries by our team of GPs so that we may help you in the most appropriate way.

All staff are aware of the need for confidentiality at all times in compliance with Caldicott rules.


Our secretaries manage GP referrals and should be your first point of contact for any queries concerning these.
