The doctors and staff seek to provide the highest level of care for all patients and also wish to develop, through Southwell Patient Participation Group (SPPG),
a partnership between our patients and the professionals involved in your care.
As a Training Practice we often have trainee GPs working with us. They are fully qualified Drs who is now training with us to specialise as a GP.
Our current trainees are Dr J Liu Dr G Bown.
All our patients have a named allocated GP (known as "usual GP" here at SMC).
You can ask any member of staff if you want the name of your allocated GP.
In order to maintain the highest possible standards of medicines safety, we require at least 2 full working days to fulfil any requests for repeat medication.
We apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause, but hope that patients will understand that the longer time is needed to ensure patient safety at all times.
Please be aware that ALL telephone calls IN and OUT of this practice are now recorded for patient and staff safety.
Recordings are securely stored for 5 (five) years.
