During my general practice training, I was fortunate enough to gain experience in dermatology; genito- urinary medicine; obstetrics and gynaecology; paediatrics and psychiatry, culminating in my final year on the Cambridge GP Vocational Training Scheme (Addenbrookes Hospital).

Our receptionist / dispensers provide an important link for patients with the practice and are your initial contact point for general enquiries. They can provide basic information on services and results and direct you to the right person depending on your health issue or query. They make most of the patient appointments with the GPs and nurses. They also perform other important tasks such as issuing repeat prescriptions, dispensing your medication and dealing with prescription enquiries.
