These pages tell you about all our staff and their different roles. Elliott Hall Medical Centre is exceptionally well regarded as a practice that trains our future general practitioners to a very high standard.

All doctors are trained in all clinical areas and see all types of medical problems, so there is no need to see any particular doctor for their expert opinion.  If necessary we may ask colleagues who have a special interest for their input.  This is part of the collaborative and teaching ethos of Elliot Hall Medical Centre.

Sister Jenner is a nurse practitioner and independent nurse prescriber.  She can see a whole range of problems from a tummy upset to chest pain, emergency contraception to ear ache or flu-like illness.

For the smooth running of the practice and for the benefit of our patients it is essential we have a strong management team and this is ably provided by Marie our practice manager.  We have in addition, a team of receptionist staff that support the clinical and senior management team.
