With such a large team and with each clinician having special requests or needs, juggling room availability, equipment, holidays and meetings, managing the rotas is a massive task which she thoroughly enjoys.  She hopes you are enjoying the new look website and please feel free to let her know if there is something missing.



Nicola, Sophie and Gemma deal with all of the referrals and secretarial duties for the GP's and they help arrange your 'Choose and Book' appointment. If you have any queries regarding your referral you can contact them each day from 9am until 4.00pm.
