Visiting Doctors and Medical Students

We are an approved training practice. Each year fully qualified doctors with experience in hospital medicine who are preparing to become General Practitioners join the team and spend up to a year working with us sharing all aspects of medical care. We welcome the fresh ideas and enthusiasm they bring and we hope you will too.

We also have medical students from Keele University plus student nurses visiting the practice from time to time. If you do NOT want a student present during your consultation then please inform the receptionist. It is of course valuable experience for students to sit in on consultations but we respect your right to see a doctor or nurse on your own if you prefer.

Managing Partner

Tracie Craddock oversees the long term organisation of the practice, including finance, personnel, communications, building and liaison. If you have any queries or suggestions about any of the above please ask to speak to her or her PA, Mandy Towle.
